The Two Faces, Part Two - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: The first time Peter is inside the memory with his mother, two ornamental flags can be seen hanging on a wall next to a light switch as they talk in the living room. One of these flags suddenly turns roughly 45° to the left without anyone touching it. (00:07:33)


The Two Faces, Part One - S1-E3

Factual error: The British policeman carries an American-style long baton on his belt. No British police force used batons before 1994 (the series is set in 1987), and batons of this pattern were never used in any case.


Trivia: The character of Dani Clayton is named after Jack Clayton, who directed "The Innocents." "The Innocents" is the film adaptation of the stage version of Henry James' "The Turn of the Screw." (Source: ScreenRant).
