Hornblower: The Duchess and The Devil

Plot hole: As the Spanish fleet looms out of the fog, Hornblower is able to identify individual ships, a remarkable feat since every ship is wearing the same paint job.

Continuity mistake: When the Spanish demand Hornblower surrender his ship, the battleship fires two shots.the first shatters the topsail spar at the jeers, bringing it down, and the second.shatters the once again undamaged topsail spar outboard of the jeers, bringing it down again.
