Sleepless in Peckham - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: In one episode, Del tells Rodney that he was born 13 years after him. Yet in this episode, when looking at the picture, Rodney says that Del is 15 and that he hadn't been born at the time the picture was taken.

Sickness & Wealth - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the start when Albert is plating up the takeaway, you see him beginning to remove the lid from the takeaway. In the next shot however, the lid is completely off. The change in shot is immediate and there is no way that Albert could have moved it in that time.

Continuity mistake: The half pint glass of beer that Rodney gets from the bar has had some drunk out of it when Denzil leaves and says bye to Cassandra, but when Del and Rodney return to it after having a meeting, it's full again.

The Second Time Around - S1-E4

Time on Our Hands - S8-E3

Character mistake: During the scene of the dinner, James (Raquel's father) states that he was in the Royal Navy and was "First Officer" (1/O). The Navy does not have this rank since it is a Merchant Navy rank. The rough equivalent of this is Lieutenant in the RN and Albert would've known this but didn't mention anything. It is also extremely unlikely that an officer the RN would still be Lieutenant after doing his full quota of 12 years service.
