4 mistakes in season 4

Factual error: In the old mill there is a sign advertising an ice cream with a flake in it for 99 p. The show is set in the 50s, long before decimal money.

Suggested correction: 99 refers to a type of ice cream not the price. A 99 is an ice cream cornet full of soft ice cream with a chocolate flake bar inserted into the cream, 99's were first sold in the 1920's and are still available today.

The Sins of the Father - S4-E9

Factual error: A character is revealed as having been hypnotised into committing murder against their will. This is not possible.



The Rod of Asclepius - S4-E6

Factual error: Albert Garrity tells Father Brown about himself and his late wife meeting "Mr and Mrs Weston" on Mayday bank holiday in 1931 and it was the wettest mayday for twenty five years. Mayday wasn't made a bank holiday until 1978.

The Daughter of Autolycus - S4-E5

Other mistake: Lady Felicia says "Ah, Father, how very propitious." The subtitles say "Ah, Father, how very capricious."
