Continuity mistake: Richard is walking through the market fending off the various street vendors.

Continuity mistake: Richard calls it a day on the investigation, but he's still chatting about it with Camille during a walk. When he says "One thing's always puzzled me about weddings", two women are crossing the street in front of him. Few seconds and a cut later, when he mentions the bouquet, here they are again, the same girls crossing the same street coming from the same direction as before. (00:23:20)

The Impossible Murder - S6-E3

Trivia: A few lines of dialogue are cut from stream releases; in the interview with Samuel Palmer after they find out about the past, the detectives ask; "And you took the rap for him?" Samuel says "When the police asked me if anyone else was involved, I said no.", to which Florence replies "You served five years. That's quite a favour.", with Samuel saying "He was my friend. He would've done the same thing for me." This part contained a mistake, since it was established earlier that he served 4 years, not five (rap sheet that Florence read to Humphrey and was on camera in close-up), that might be the reason.

Question: When Richard reminisces about England, he talks about going to the pub and having a pint. Yet the whole time he's in Saint Marie, he is never seen to drink alcohol with the rest of the team; only cups of tea. Why?

Answer: Most likely they had only tropical exotic drinks, he wanted an old fashioned English beer.
