The Class of '62 - S7-E4

Audio problem: When Del invites all his mates round to his flat after the reunion, they start to go through a number of photos. When Del shows them the photo of the school football team, Trigger says, "There's that Italian kid, good player, what was his name?" But if you look closely, Trigger's voice has been dubbed over. Instead, he says, "There's that Italian Prat."

Hole in One - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Rodney says "yeah he did. The landlord.", in reply to Solly, he has a glass up to his mouth. In the next shot, he has obviously just swallowed what was in there, the glass is back on the table and you can see his cheekbones moving.

Healthy Competition - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Just before Del says that Rodney needs Radar, the door behind Rodney is beginning to swing open. Nobody makes any move to close it. The next time we see that door, it is firmly shut. (00:04:50)

Sleepless in Peckham - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: In 'The Frog's Legacy' (1987), Del & Rodney learnt the story of Freddy The Frog for the first time - neither of them had ever heard of him before (Aunt Irene explains to Del who Freddy was. She mentions both 'Freddy The Frog' and his real name 'Frederick Robdal'. Del has heard of neither of these names). Yet in 'Sleepless In Peckham', it would seem that Del had known Freddy since he was 15. He even went on their first Jolly Boys' Outing with the rest of the gang.
