Show generally

Revealing mistake: In the 5th November episode when Sophie takes Audrey's fur hat off Beth and throws it in the fire, there are flames licking the hat, yet the hat itself doesn't catch fire, because when Keith retrieves it, it is unburnt. So the hat must either be made of asbestos or the flames are computer generated, not real.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In the 11/04/07 episode when Jason is hugging his baby and talking to his mum, it is extremely obvious that in some shots the baby is a rigid plastic dummy.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In a recent episode, Roger is shown carrying a box with a 42" plasma TV into Janice's flat. Plasma TVs are very heavy, so it's most likely the box that Roger was carrying was empty.

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.
