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.

Friday the 14th - S3-E3

Audio problem: When Del, Rodney and Grandad are in the cottage, Del is scared to open the door. Rodney says "Well go on then Del, there's nothing to be frightened of now."

Plot hole: Del says that Rodney needs to sort his priorities out about being Chairman of the Housing Committee or working the pitch. However Rodney never tells Del he is chairman (he is made chairman at the meeting in the morning and goes to find Del after the meeting as shown by the same clothes, and Del asking where he was).
