Fortitude picture

Show generally

Factual error: A scene in a photographic darkroom shows Michael Gambon developing a colour print in a dish under safe lights. Not possible. Colour printing must be carried out in pitch dark usually inside a light tight print processor, as colour photographic paper is sensitive to all wavelengths of visible light.

Us vs. Them - S2-E2

Factual error: We see Liam's driver's license. It says he's from Rhode Island, but the license looks nothing like RI's.

Time Will Tell - S2-E7

Character mistake: A shot shows Djimon Hounsou completing his year entry on a large chalk board. The entries are 20 years apart. The third entry on the second line is 2274, the next should be 2294, but instead it records 2394. The one after corrects the sequence with 2314. Considering there is an entry only every twenty years, you would think he'd be more careful.

Episode #1.3 - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Vera fires the gun 3 times, and later tells Justice Wargrave that the gun is empty, meaning that all the cartridges in it would be spent.

Blood Drive - S2-E6

Character mistake: Zayday makes incorrect statements about blood types. She mentions that, since Chanel #5 is type O-, her parents must also be O-; in actuality, they could each be type A or B (genotypes AO or BO, respectively) and could also have Rh+ blood as long as they also carry the recessive Rh- allele. Zayday also says that the child of two O+ parents must be O+, when the child could also be O- (again, if the parents carry the Rh- allele).

Agent Carter picture

Pilot - S1-E1

Character mistake: When the office receives a code red alert, there is a close-up shot of the alarm, where there are two clocks next to it. One of the clocks represents New York time. The other represents London time. The clock representing New York reads the time as 10:40 and the clock representing London reads the time as 4:40. The time difference between New York and London is 5 hours, not 6 (occasionally 4 due to DST).

Casual Person
Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: London is five hours ahead of New York normally, but Episode 5 takes place on April 25, 1946, so it is reasonable to assume Episode 1 takes place not long before that. England went on British Summer Time on April 14, 1946, while New York didn't go on Daylight Savings Time until April 28, 1946, so from April 14 to April 28, 1946, London was 6 hours ahead of New York, so the clocks would be correct.

The Tandyman Can - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Carol goes to cross out the garbage pool grievance, she accidentally goes under the words "phil garbage" before going through the rest of the words. When it cuts back, you can see the line is now going through "phil garbage" and the red line underneath is gone.
