Flood - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Jerzei is coming through the door with an axe, you can see the door is paper thin to make it easier to get through. In fact you can see Alexei Sayle being very careful to only chip small bits away because a decent whack with the axe would smash the whole thing down.

David Mercier

Oil - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When 'Buddy Holly' is hanging form the ceiling, his hands are not touching his guitar. In the next shot, his hands are in place as he starts to play. (00:05:00)

Dwarf

Demolition - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Vivian hits the wall, he walks back to the table and Mike is stood up staring at him. In the next shot he has a chair in his hand and is looking down. (00:10:30)

Dwarf

Boring - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Vyvyan is trying to show off his finger trick there are two mistakes, 1) the fingers are bent the other way (this shows that the hand is fake), 2) when he cuts off the wrong finger there is blood shooting out but you can see the tube of blood right near his wrist.

Oil - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: After Rik catches the golf ball and runs into his room, as he closes the door the entire wall wobbles. (00:16:00)

Dwarf

Nasty - S2-E3

Rik: Oh no, the front door's exploded. Vyvyan.
Mike: Vyvyan.
Vyvyan: Vyvyan, Vyvyan, Vyvyan. Honestly, whenever anything explodes in this house it's always 'Blame Vyvyan'.

Bambi - S2-E1

Trivia: It's obvious that they just walked into the train station and started filming, because all throughout the sequence people are staring at them.

Boring - S1-E3

Question: What is it exactly that Rik reads from the paper? The thing that Neil repeats that brings the little devil to them? I'm assuming it's a poorly pronounced version of something that was in the papers at that time, but I can't think of anything that fits it.

Gary O'Reilly

Chosen answer: It wasn't referring to anything real, just that the government's bureaucratic naming, The Guardian's mangled spelling or Rick's bad pronounciation resulted in the unlikely word "Footumch" being spoken.
