Factual error: When Cindy wanted a hitman to kill Ian she looks in the yellow pages to find one. Surely the police and the makers of the yellow pages would have been alerted if a hitman agency wants to advertise itself in the yellow pages?

Continuity mistake: When Kelly and Zoe are freezing on the Scottish Highlands together against the burnt out minibus, Zoe's lips change colour back and forth through out the scene. It does from hypothermia blue to nice and pink just before Zoe and Kelley kiss.

Factual error: When Barry dies in the Scottish Highlands, Janine has him cremated. However, she manages to get back to Walford in roughly 4 days, no police force would allow for a body to be cremated 4 days after death, especially with an unknown circumstance of death. Also it would look very suspicious that the widow was so keen to get her husband cremated, slowing the police force down even more.

Revealing mistake: Episode Aired 12th December. In the laundrette a shelf had fallen off the wall and Dot Cotton needed someone to fix it. You could see the wall was false, as every time Dot touched the shelf, the wall was wobbling. Later same episode Martin Fowler fixed the shelf he said something like "the wall will fall down before the shelf does" - very true.

Revealing mistake: In the legendary episode where Steve Owen dies, the car somehow manages to get flipped over onto its roof. Only a bomb going off would create such an effect, not just the tank going up.

Continuity mistake: There seems to be some sort of vehicle vortex in Albert Square. It has already claimed Sonia's Metro, the Ferreira's van, Barry's Merc, and Phil's big Mercedes. Where do all these cars disappear to? We see them in one episode, then they are gone. Though there may be explanations for one or two vehicles, that STILL does not account for all of them, all of the time.
