Gorilla Warfare - S7-E3

Revealing mistake: This actually happens throughout the entire show but is most obvious at the beginning of this episode: When they are in the churchyard it is obviously a studio stage, as there are shadows at all angles around the cast from the studio lights. Also, the lights are quite prominently reflected in Arthur Lowe's glasses.

Everybody's Trucking - S7-E1

Factual error: The motorbike and sidecar used by the verger is a post-war 1945 BSA M21 with sidecar. The period is supposed to be 1942.

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