Quatermass and the Pit

Factual error: Barbara takes an ancient document out of a filing cabinet. One of the words in its title is HIFTORIE, for "history." The old-fashioned way of writing the letter "s" was the so-called long s (ſ), not the letter "f", and this was only ever used as a lowercase letter. So the word would have been written as HISTORIE.
