Season 13 generally

Factual error: In series 13, when phone numbers are referred to, they usually start 0808 (even mobile numbers). UK phone numbers starting with those numbers are freephone numbers and wouldn't be used for private use, or even for mobiles (which all start with 07).

Reignited - S9-E1

Factual error: Towards the end, Eva Mason blows up Leonard Brooks' flat in an attempt to kill him, by heating up gas from the stove using an uncovered light bulb. This wouldn't work as shown as the filament from the bulb would burn out before igniting the gas - and besides, a spark from the light switch would have ignited it first.

Nesting Dolls - S5-E13

Character mistake: When Catherine is being questioned about the victim, it is mentioned that her parents were killed in an industrial accident in Odessa. To which Catherine replies, "Russia?", and is answered in the affirmative. Odessa is a major city in the Ukraine, not Russia.

Invictus (2009)

Factual error: During the match against England, the PA announcer mentions the try scorer as 'No. 13, Ben Clarke'. Ben Clarke actually wore No. 7 - No. 13 in that game was Will Carling (England captain none the less).

Bang, Bang, Your Debt - S6-E4

Plot hole: Delko is rummaging in Speedle's locker. Why would Speedle still have a locker, considering he's been dead 3 years? Even if they couldn't allocate it to someone else, why are his personal effects (e.g. his wallet) still in there? Shouldn't these have been returned to his family?

Page Turner - S5-E2

Factual error: All the victims were supposedly killed using thalium-201 - a radioactive isotope with a half-life of just 72 hours. e.g.: In the space of two months there would be 10 nanograms for every gram applied to the source of the radiation poisoning (i.e the book) - not enough to make Sid ill without making the perp very ill. He would have had a much higher dose than anyone infected.

Dod Kalm - S2-E19

Trivia: Most of Catalina's speeches in Spanish (the ones that are not translated) are actually actress Nadine Velasquez speaking to the camera, addressing the viewers. For example, in episode 1-11 (Barn Burner), although it appears that she is throwing insults at Joy, she is actually saying "I want to take this moment to thank our Latino audience for watching. And for those of you who can understand me but who are not Latino, I want to commend you for learning a second language".

The A-Team (1983)

Quarterback Sneak - S5-E4

Factual error: When the two men are watching the soccer game between the USA and East Germany, look at the 'East' German shirts - they are actually WEST German shirts (white with black trim, with even the stylised eagle of the DFB (the West German Soccer Federation).

Octopussy (1983)

Factual error: When the German police are chasing Bond into the air base, they are simply waved in at the gate. That wouldn't happen - without authority, local authorities wouldn't be allowed to enter an armed forces installation, especially a foreign one.

New Tricks (2004)

Season Final - S1-E6

Factual error: Mobile phone signals cannot pass through steel very well if at all, so the recording of the mobile phone conversation given to the head of UCOS should be breaking up in places, or the call should have been cut off when the door was closed - it shouldn't be crystal clear.

The Best Years of Your Death - S1-E3

Plot hole: In the chapel, you can see the heads of those who tried to cross Harriet (the mad matron) preserved in formaldehyde. How did she get hold of so much of it? Wouldn't her husband or the headmaster be suspicious?

Show generally

Plot hole: In the first series, Bomber mentions 'City's my team', referring to Bristol City, and dislikes the other Bristol based football club (Rovers). If this is the case, why is he wearing the distictive blue-and-white quartered shirt of Bristol Rovers in series 4? I know that people change allegiances, but it's very unlikely.

Factual error: Following the incident with the microscope, the Russian Forensic Scientist is afraid she will be sent to Chernobyl - Why? Since the breakup of the USSR, it's in a different country (Ukraine), so the Russian Authorities are highly unlikely to send her there.

Silkwood (1983)

Factual error: Karen points out to Thelma that she should have given a nasal swab (to detect internal contamination) after being 'cooked', yet on both occasions when Karen is being scrubbed after being contaminated she has blisters all over her face - something which should be avoided when performing decontamination as this can allow contamination to enter the body.
