Above the Vaulted Sky - S2-E5

Factual error: Inspector Rusk uses the term "trope" in its modern meaning of a theme or motif. This usage did not come into vogue until the late 20th century; the first such usage recorded by the OED was in 1975. The series is set in the 1890s and the language used is generally that of the time.

Above the Vaulted Sky - S2-E5

Factual error: Inspector Rusk lost an arm while serving in the army before he became a policeman. A one-armed man would never have been allowed to join the police in Victorian England - as today, all police officers had to join as uniformed constables and they had to be completely physically fit and able-bodied. Only the most senior officers (well above inspector) could join directly in a senior rank.
