Only Fools and Horses

Miami Twice (2) - S99-E11

Deliberate mistake: Del had the smugler's letter in his pocket when he fell in the swamp. Yet, when he takes it out at the rangers station, it's perfectly dry. Surely, it should be soaked.

Healthy Competition - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Del is escaping in the van, there is a view from the side of the van and the door is almost completely shut. But in the next shot, which is a direct view of the back of the van, the door is wide open, allowing space for the toy dogs to fall out of the suitcase and onto the road. (00:03:45)

If They Could See Us Now...! - S9-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Cassandra is explaining why the fancy dress party is early, as she walks off, a boom mic comes into shot and is easily visible above Rodney's head.

Modern Men - S8-E2

Revealing mistake: When Del and his mates are in the pub, when it's Del's turn for the drinks, he gives Mike a hairdryer (really an electric paint stripper). If you notice, Del picks up the hairdryer off the floor.

A Touch of Glass - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: When towing the car, the tow rope is slack, showing the van is not towing the other car. (00:05:45)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The layout of the flat changes throughout the course of the show. Most noticeable is the area by the bedrooms. In series 2 it's a tiny little hall. In series 7 it's a sprawling hallway.

A Royal Flush - S99-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Del shuts the door at the end after coming in from outside, just above the door, a boom mic can be seen. Look carefully as it is on a greyish background.

The Russians Are Coming - S1-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Rodney says that the country isn't prepared for war, a boom mic shadow can be seen on the sofa as Rodney walks past it. (00:05:35)

Dwarf

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.

Happy Returns - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Rodney and Del are back in their own flat, Del is pouring a drink, the shadow of a boom mic can be seen on Rodney's shoulder right up until Rodney walks away.

Danger UXD - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When Del is talking to Denzil in the Nag's Head, the spoon in Denzil's stew changes bowls without him moving it.

Healthy Competition - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Del walks in to the flat, as he answers Grandad's first question, the shadow of a boom mic can be seen moving behind him on the blue front door. (00:04:15)

A Royal Flush - S99-E5

Revealing mistake: Look behind Rodney and Vicky as they enter the theatre for the Gala performance. A small crowd has gathered across the road to watch the filming.

The Longest Night - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lennox Gilbey opens a can of beer in the supermarket, you can see that he has a long purple thing inside his jacket. He dosen't take it off the shelf until a few shots later. (00:06:00)

A Losing Streak - S2-E3

Audio problem: When Del is in the flat telling Grandad about him losing to Boycie in the pub, he says "only genuine weight watcher in London" however he doesn't say the word "genuine" but "only provo weightwatcher" which was obviously a topical gag at the time.

The Long Legs of the Law - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Rodney realises that he has just drank Grandad's Steradent, he runs into the bathroom. As Del is laughing at him, just above and to the right of Del's head, a boom mic is visible. (00:05:55)

Mother Nature's Son - S99-E12

Revealing mistake: When Raquel walks into the living room after Rodney has told Del about the successful bloke, you can see a studio light on one of the pictures on the wall.

Dates - S99-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Rodney and Nerys are being chased, as they go over a hill, you can see the ramp the van goes up to get the height.
