The Serpent picture

Season 1 generally

Factual error: At the end of episode 6, we see Alain crossing the German French border in a European registered right-hand drive Citroen CX. Then at the very beginning of Episode 7, they check into a hotel and the Mercedes parked in the forecourt was also right-hand drive. (00:01:00 - 00:01:30)

What If...? picture

What If... Captain Carter Were the First Avenger? - S1-E1

Other mistake: The premise of the first episode is flawed; "a single choice" should make the difference, the choice being identified as Ms. Carter not leaving the room to get in the observation booth. But in the normal timeline the booth is exactly where all the other characters were. In this reality everyone else is downstairs, with the German spy that inexplicably sets the bomb early. If anything, it's his bizarre, suicidal choice that matters.

Suggested correction: Except it was her decision to not leave the room that delayed the procedure and gave Heinz Kruger the chance to attack. And with her in the room, she is now given the chance to volunteer to take the serum.


How did her staying delay the procedure? Besides, in OTL the spy only triggered the bomb after he saw the procedure succeed, to know it works before stealing it.

Vigil picture

Show generally

Factual error: Most of the crew seem to be Scottish. Even though the submarine is based in Scotland, the Royal Navy is a national service and its crew's composition would reflect that of the UK in general: the majority would therefore be English.

The Pembrokeshire Murders picture

Show generally

Factual error: The Chief Constable of Dyfed-Powys Police is depicted as a mixed-race woman named Tyler. At the time, the chief constable was actually Terry Grange, a white man. The only woman to ever head the force, temporarily in 2012 (after the period covered by the series), was Jackie Roberts, who is also white. This is a factual series covering real events, not a work of fiction.

Suggested correction: He recognized that there were two Tony Starks in the lobby by the smell of their colognes, and combined with all the other unusual shenanigans going on, he correctly deduced the Avengers travelled through time, though he incorrectly thought it was to prevent his ascendancy.

Continuity mistake: Stabler is patted down by a NYPD Officer and the officer is shown slipping something into Stabler's left front pants pocket. After the officer departs Stabler pulls a paper out of his front right pants pocket. (00:15:52 - 00:16:30)
