The Haunting of Hill House

Touch - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Theo is thinking back to when Steve offers to share the royalties from his book, Shirley is heavily pregnant with her daughter. However, on the table next to Theo, is a photo of Shirley's son and daughter, as they are in the present.

Silence Lay Steadily - S1-E10

Other mistake: When Steven is giving his final monologue, Michiel Huisman's natural Dutch accent slips through when he says "Without it, we cannot continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality."

Eulogy - S1-E7

Other mistake: While working in the basement, the young Hugh Crain gets his right hand sliced badly by a fan. When the story next jumps forward to the present time, the first thing we see is Hugh grabbing a handful of dirt with the same hand and there is barely a scar on it.

Trivia: In the original novel, the characters Eleanor, Theo and Luke were not siblings. In addition, the characters Steven and Shirley didn't exist in the original novel. This series - a re-imagining of the novel - made the main characters into siblings and added Steven and Shirley to broaden the cast a bit. Shirley is named after Shirley Jackson, who wrote the novel.
