The Talented Mr. Alan - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene when his old school teacher comes in to pay for petrol, he hands Alan his credit card. The two of them chat and the teacher proceeds to leave, claiming that if the pupils need someone to talk to them about working in a petrol station, he'll be onto Alan. Alan dismisses that he works in a petrol station, and the teacher says "But I've just paid you for petrol and a packet of Minstrels." Actually he didn't, as Alan never swiped the card and the teacher left with free petrol and chocolate.

Trivia

Given that the BBC are very much against product placement in their shows, its shocking the amount of placement that goes on in Alan Partridge. Its really in your face stuff. Ginsters pasties, BP petrol, Lexus cars, Flavia coffee machines, Directors bitter, Twix and Yorkie bars. In every episode the above are mentioned on numerous occastions. Not that I give a hoot about product placement myself, but am so surprised at how blatently obvious it is and yet the BBC have always been so against it.
