201 mistakes

The Long Legs of the Law - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: At the very beginning of the episode, Leonard Pearce is waiting for the cue for his character to start looking for his teeth. He's standing in the living room, between his room and Del and Rodney's room.

The Russians Are Coming - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Just before Grandad suggests building the shelter in the New Forest, as Del goes to look the plans for the shelter you can see Grandad sit forwards in his chair. In the next shot Grandad is now sitting back in his chair.


Mother Nature's Son - S99-E12

Audio problem: During the first scene of this episode, (the scene with Rodney and Cassandra in bed) there is a distinct echo on the soundtrack.

James Ransford

Dates - S99-E7

Visible crew/equipment: As Rodney is coming round a corner while being chased, if you look carefully, you can see that the driver is a stunt driver and the passenger is a dummy.

Joe Mc

Strained Relations - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: When everyone's back at the flat, as Del Boy is looking straight down the hallway to his and Rodney's bedroom, someone comes up to him and he turns around. When it goes from his close-up to the wide shot of everyone else the shadow of the camera reversing backwards is visible for a few seconds.

David Hutchinson

Miami Twice (2) - S99-E11

Audio problem: Del and Rodney are on the plane to Miami. Rodney tells Del to take the headphones off.Del's mouth says 'what, these?', but it is overdubbed with a laugh.

May the Force Be with You - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Del is proposing Slater a deal, Slater says "I don't like deals" and shoves Del's hand off the phone hook (Del was trying to stop Slater keeping him in custody overnight). But in the next shot Del's hand is still on the hook.

To Hull and Back - S99-E4

Continuity mistake: Rodney says that he picked up the money off the table when they were trying to escape from the police, yet if you look closely he never goes near it. And he never has another chance to pick it up.


Modern Men - S8-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Trigger tells everyone about his accident with a "mind your head" sign, as Boycie pays Rodney to get the drinks, a boom mic is visible at the top of the screen.

Joe Mc

Healthy Competition - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Del is trying to sell the toy dogs, in a number of shots from behind the customers, the reflection of a boom mic is visible. Look to the right of the double doors behind Del.

Joe Mc

Healthy Competition - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Rodney is talking about breaking up the partnership, his hands switch from being on his knees to the table between shots.


Little Problems - S6-E6

Visible crew/equipment: Just after the video recorder blows up, you can see the shadow of one of the cameras on the video recorder. It slowly moves out of the camera's view.

Three Men, a Woman and a Baby - S7-E6

Revealing mistake: When Albert and Rodney are waiting in the hospital corridor, at one point it is around 2am in the morning. A view out the window and reflections show that it is broad daylight.

The Jolly Boys' Outing - S99-E8

Continuity mistake: There is an ash tray behind Rodney and Albert's bed. In some shots it is there and in some shots it isn't.

Joe Mc

Christmas Crackers - S99-E1

Other mistake: When Del is cutting the turkey, Watch Grandad indiscretely look at the camera to see if it's his cue.

Joe Mc

Christmas Crackers - S99-E1

Continuity mistake: When Del hangs his coat up on the peg in the hallway, the whole stage wall shakes when the coat falls off.

Healthy Competition - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: When Del is trying to sell those hooky toy dogs, there are some shots of the policeman walking across the street. The same clip of that policeman is played twice, only one is longer than the other (note a grey-haired man walk across the screen twice).

To Hull and Back - S99-E4

Continuity mistake: When Rodney and Del are driving down the road and Rodney is talking, you see a side shot of the van and you will notice his lips aren't moving.


Fatal Extraction - S99-E13

Audio problem: In one of the scenes where you see Del trying to sell some ski wear at the market, his lips are obviously saying something totally different to what he actually says. They have dubbed over the original soundtrack.

The Second Time Around - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: When Grandad is speaking strangely and telling Del that Pauline has hidden his teeth, you can see his bottom set of teeth.
