Show generally

Continuity mistake: In War Dance (4-2) the verger Mr. Yateman's wife's Christian name is Anthea. In Everybody's Trucking (8-1) it is Beryl, and in Knights of Madness (10-3) she is called Tracy.

Show generally

Other mistake: The Church Hall got through an impossibly large number of different pianos, especially considering the fact that there was a war on.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: (Colour episodes only) In the section of the closing credits that features the main cast members marching, the sky colour and positions of the shadows on the ground change depending on the actor being featured at the time (the sky is blue when Arthur Lowe, John Laurie and Ian Lavender are seen, but it is grey when John Le Mesurier, Clive Dunn, James Beck and Arnold Ridley feature). This is more obvious on episodes that have had colour restoration undertaken.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: "Resisting the aggressor down the ages" (Christmas night with the stars special episode) Just after Jones bangs the gong at the wrong time and says "that was a mistake, I'm sorry" there is a boom mike shadow on Mainwaring's union jack waistcoat.

Mainwaring: In the words of the great E.C Cochran. "Early to bed, early to rise, no jolly good if you don't advertise."
