Pride and Prejudice

Episode #1.5 - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: The day that they received Mr. Gardiner's express letter, Jane is wearing a pink gown and Elizabeth a white. The next scene is possibly that evening before bed where Elizabeth tells Jane she wishes she never told Mr. Darcy about Lydia. The following scene looks like the next day, when Jane and Elizabeth tells Mrs. Bennet about the letter, and they are wearing the same outfits from presumably the day before. When Elizabeth goes down to her Father and they start talking, she says, "considering what we thought only a few hours ago." Which means the before bed scene was cut from after Lydia's and Wickham's wedding, because it shows a flash to Mr Darcy. Which is the same scene of him at the wedding which hasn't happened yet.

Episode #1.5 - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Jane and Lizzy are talking in Lizzy's bedroom about how Lydia's elopement has affected their chances of finding respectable husbands. The cream-colored shawl on Lizzy's left shoulder appears and disappears depending on the angle. (00:31:35)

Character mistake: Mrs. Reynolds, the housekeeper at Pemberley, refers to Mr. Darcy's late mother as Mrs. Darcy while showing Elizabeth and her aunt and uncle the house. This is a grave mistake on the part of the filmmakers as she should have been referred to as Lady Anne, the way her sister is known as Lady Catherine. Their father was an Earl, making them Ladies by birth, not by marriage. Hence, they must be called Lady followed by their first name.
