Tape 6, Side B - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Hanna makes the list with names involving her past events, they differ substantially between the close-up when they're written and the final wide angle once the paper is finished. Check Alexander: first an irregular oval with a straight side, then a perfect oval.

Episode #1.7 - S1-E7

Factual error: Lorna uses the word 'okay'. The first recorded usage of this word in America was not until 1839 and in Britain not until the 20th century. The series is set in 1814 and generally uses language contemporary to its setting.

Maybe/Definitely - S2-E5

New this month Factual error: In the opening sequence when Maddie is supposedly driving from Michigan through Ohio and back to Pennsylvania, you can very briefly spot the reflection of a "TD Canada Trust" in the car window. This is because the show is actually shot in Vancouver. In the United States the company is simply known as "TD Bank", which doesn't operate any branches in either Michigan or Ohio.

Chicago Justice picture

Judge Not - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: The jacket Anna uses to put pressure on the judge's gunshots changes in the next shot. It becomes unfolded more even though she was applying pressure the whole time.

Borealis 301 - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the end, Tom takes out the cipher key that was previously written on. But the cipher key used in the close up shots is different than the original. The words are spaced out and crossed out differently.

Factual error: ACC Pat Gallan wears the ribbon of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. The medal was issued in 2012. Her medals would be correct for 2017 when the series was made, but not 2007 when it is set.

The Last Post picture

Show generally

Factual error: Sergeant Baxter seems to be the senior NCO of the company. There appear to be no company sergeant major or staff sergeants. This is very odd, but particularly odd in the Royal Military Police, which is very NCO-heavy.

Knever

Show generally

Factual error: Johann Eck is dressed as a cardinal and Albrecht von Brandenburg addresses him as "Your Eminence" and kisses his ring. In reality, Eck was not a cardinal. Albrecht, however, was. It should be Eck showing deference to him, not vice versa. Albrecht was also only thirty, half the age of the actor playing him.

Episode #1.3 - S1-E3

Factual error: Billy is called up into a specific unit of the Royal Artillery. This didn't happen. He would first have been sent to a Royal Artillery training depot and only after training would he have been assigned to a unit.

Factual error: When Jim Fitzgerald walks up to his cabin, several Ford Crown Victoria sedans are parked around it. The model seen is of the 1998 and final design, while the scene takes place in 1997, a year before it was introduced.

Valor (2017)

Valor picture

Show generally

Factual error: Every Time the Shadow Raiders deploy to Somalia, they use a Blackhawk nicknamed "Adele" for their missions. I can understand the helos being transported via fixed-wing aircraft, but on their last mission they leave Georgia, and reach Somalia the same day, flying in the Blackhawks. It would take them some 15-20 hours not including fuel stops. Yet the mission is completed in the time it takes to find a bomb in downtown Atlanta.

Episode #1.2 - S1-E2

Factual error: The settlers prepare to burn Verity at the stake as a witch. Witches were never burned in England or her colonies; they were hanged.
