Coronation Street

Show generally

Factual error: On the 28th Jan episode, Gary is interviewed by his comanding officer having not shaved. The cap badge he is wearing is of the Royal Army Ordinance corps which were amalgamated in 1993 into the Royal Logistics corps (different cap badge) and the belts worn by the two soldiers behind him are from neither regiment. Also neither the RAOC or The RLC are infantry regiments. Gary is supposed to be in the infantry but he finished his training in Pirbright not Catterick where all the other infantry soldiers are trained.

Show generally

Factual error: On 21st July 2014, Kal's father and sister are shown going into Roy's and ask for a bacon bap. Muslims do not eat bacon, and it is Ramadam, so they do not eat from sunrise to sunset anyway.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Katy, Carl and Todd go to see Badly Drawn Boy in concert, they go to the Rovers after the concert has finished. It's last orders so it must be 11pm. However, in the next scene in Martin's flat (when he is wondering where Katy has got to) the clock on his wall says 8 o'clock.
