Episode #4.1 - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Dwayne realises that he did not ask the cute girl's name, and looks at her now far away. Something is wrong with this shot of Jos├ęphine Jobert and her derriere; walking down the same street there's the same couple that is having a drink right next to Dwayne (his black shirt with colourful drawings is not exactly hard to miss).

Episode #4.1 - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Humphrey sets the popcorn for Harry, Harry in the last shot is closer than in the previous - which could make sense if we assume he scuttled closer during the split cut to Kris Marshall, but the light on the couch changes between shots as well. (00:51:15)

Episode #4.1 - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Humph and Camille are talking with Zeta Akande about the reasons for the lack of references from her job. When she says "The children really loved me", her braids at the leftmost side of the chest are bunched together, split when she says in close-up "He didn't like that", united again as it gets back to a wider angle, etc. (00:32:35)

Erupting in Murder - S6-E1

Trivia: A bit of the episode has been cut for the streaming releases; at the end of the scene with Humphrey taking Martha's luggage, he would make a date with her for the next day, to cook dinner for her at 8. This has been eliminated probably because it created timing issues with 8 PM being too well lit (in contrast with the supposed timing of the murder) and the ending takes place at Catherine's for a cute drinking scene anyway.

Show generally

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.
