Auf Wiedersehen, Pet

Auf Wiedersehen, Pet (1983)

3 corrected entries

If I Were a Carpenter - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Dennis and Neville are push-starting Oz's car after they have stopped for a break. This wouldn't help, as the car has an automatic gearbox. The automatic gear selector on these cars (Ford Zephyr) is on the steering column and can be seen when they break down on the motorway.

Correction: In fact you can push-start an automatic. Instead of popping the clutch, which you don't have - when you get up to speed you drop the shift from neutral to drive. Not good for the gearbox, but it works.

The Accused - S1-E6

Corrected entry: In the police station, the police officer is yelling loudly at Neville in German. Why didn't they find an interpreter as it is obvious that he is a British builder who probably speaks very little German? Also, why would you get aggressive with someone who is obviously scared?

Andy Benham

Correction: Just becuase someone is English doesn't mean they can't speak Germen, at the initial 'interview' the officer may have just thought that Nev was faking not being able to understand. He wasn't being aggresive, it's just the way German happens to sound to English ears, I know I hear German voices all the time and it often sounds as though they are shouting and being aggresive.

Season 3 generally

Corrected entry: The closing theme song throughout Series 3 of Auf Weidershen Pet was "Why Aye Man" by Mark Knopfler (of "Dire Straits" fame). For added "authenticity", backing vocals on this track were sung by Jimmy Nail (Oz) and Tim Healy (Dennis). However, the lyrics of the song refer to the storyline of series One and NOT to series three...

Correction: This should not be considered a mistake because only the chorus is sung. Many closing theme songs have very little to do with the show.

Mistakes

In the scene where Neville is telling Dennis he should find a woman, Dennis is getting dressed up in his suit to meet Dagmar. After Neville has finished talking, Dennis leaves the hut without a suitcase. But when he arrives at the hotel with Dagmar he is seen putting his case on the bed(Dagmar has one as well). It is clear that he has come straight from the hut, as he is telling Dagmar what Neville had told him before he left.
