Factual error: Throughout the season, it is the BND who run security investigations within Germany. The BND is the German external intelligence service. The internal security service, who would actually be running these investigations, is the BfV. Neither service has a power of arrest, which BND agents exercise on at least two occasions during the season. If they need to arrest somebody then they must call in the Bundespolizei (as they do correctly at other times).

Other mistake: A major plot point is the rivalry between the Wehrmacht and the SS, who refuse to work together. After the explosion at the cemetery, it is the Wehrmacht who are explicitly described as rounding up and interning suspected resistance fighters, with the SS not being party to it. However, when Archer visits the internment camp, most of the staff are wearing SS uniform.

Continuity mistake: In episode 5, it was established that there is no road to the Jezequiel house. Robert and Max had to leave their car in the village and walk across the fields to the house. In this episode, however, Robert drives his car right up to the house with no problem.

Factual error: Toby joins the War Office, handles statistics for the RAF (an Air Ministry job) and then is suddenly said to be working for the Admiralty, but still in the same office in which he has been working since the beginning of the war. These were three completely separate ministries with separate buildings. Civil servants joined one or the other.
Factual error: In 1940, all the Americans are leaving London on transatlantic flights. Although the first commercial transatlantic flights began in 1939, they were suspended on the outbreak of war. Real commercial transatlantic service did not begin until after the war.
