The Longest Night - S5-E3

Plot hole: The Trotter's are taken to the office while the supermarket is still open, the office containing the safe. Tender pickups in supermarkets are done throughout the day but how did the cash from the tills at closing reach the safe? It is unlikely that a supermarket would leave large amounts of cash in tills and counter caches. The Trotters were actually in the office as the store closed, as well as Lennox. The safe is far too small. A safe in a large supermarket would contain large bags of change and would have an inner safe for cash bricks. Also, how is it that no other member of staff noticed the situation in the office - such as maybe a member of staff involved in cashing-up tills needing to gain access to the safe? (I work in a supermarket as a Duty Manager).

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.
