The Jolly Boys' Outing - S99-E8

Plot hole: After discovering that there was a rail strike and that they had missed the last bus home, the 27-member coach party all go their separate ways to try and find accommodation for the night. Boycie, Mike and Alan head off together while Trigger is left behind on his own to decide on which direction he wishes to walk in to try and find his own digs. Later on that evening, Boycie, Mike and Trigger seemingly all arrive at the nightclub together. How come? Especially after Trigger informs Del and Rodney that the place where he is staying is different to where Boycie and Mike are staying.

As One Door Closes - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: When Del sees Denzil skating along and tells him that he's got his money (the butterfly), Denzil gives him a high five and crushes the butterfly. If you look at Del's hand when Denzil goes past him, you can see the butterfly is not crushed at all.

The Sky's the Limit - S7-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene with Rodney on the balcony with Del about to join him, there's a big window behind them, and in the next shot it's smaller.

The Jolly Boys' Outing - S99-E8

Continuity mistake: In 'The Unlucky Winner Is' (which is set before Rodney and Cassandra marry) Del changes Rodney's date of birth to 2nd November 1974 in order to make him appear 14, meaning this episode is set sometime between November 1988 and November 1989. However, in this episode, which takes place after Rodney and Cassandra have been married a whole year, a sign in the window of the coach (which can be seen just as the coach is leaving the police station) states that this episode takes place in 1989, and it is on a Bank Holiday weekend, thus can be no later than August 1989.

The Longest Night - S5-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Uncle Albert walks round the corner to the manager's office, a camera shadow is seen on his coat. (00:02:20)
