Murder, She Wrote

Thicker Than Water - S8-E4

Factual error: At the end of the episode after Wayne is shot, there is a brief shot of the outside of the hospital where he has been taken. The sign outside the hospital says Dalesboro, Ohio. Why would someone shot in coastal Maine end up in a hospital in Ohio?

The Corpse Flew First Class - S3-E12

Factual error: As the airplane is coming in to land at Heathrow, there is an establishing shot of the wheels down, and in the background there are cars on the road, but driving on the right, wrong for the UK.

Murder of the Month Club - S11-E10

Factual error: When Joellen removes the manuscript from the locker at the Yonkers bus station, you can see the address it was originally mailed too. The zip code is 10205. This is incorrect. All Buffalo, NY zip codes start with "14xxx" a zip code starting with "10xxx" would be much further down state.

It Runs In The Family - S4-E6

Factual error: The whole episode is run as if based in the UK, and yet the script has obviously been written by an American. The UK does not have autopsies, it has post-mortems. The UK does not have a trunk (of a car) it has a boot.

Sing a Song of Murder - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When the first scene at Emma's hideaway was shown, obviously the two characters Emma and Jessica were filmed seperately on the couch and then the film was put together (as both are played by Angela Lansbury). However Jessica did a lot of moving while she was talking, so Emma was looking straight across at where she had been, despite her bending down while she talked.

Murder Among Friends - S12-E16

Question: I think most MSW episodes are wrapped up pretty nicely, however, there is a loose end in "Murder Among Friends" that is bothering me - why didn't Dyan take the script from Ricki's safe after she killed her? We know that safe was open when she killed Ricki and that the script inside named Carly as the one being written-off the show (not herself like Dyan wanted). She had no way of knowing that Gene would switch out the script (a good red herring) or that Leo would opt for a re-write anyway, so why leave it? We also know that Leo didn't want to let Dyan do the movie either, so killing Ricki alone wouldn't necessarily solve Dyan's problem. It doesn't seem plausible that she killed Ricki out of pure rage without caring whether or not it would even help her cause. Is there any explanation? It just bothers me that they never addressed why Dyan didn't take the script...after all, it WAS the McGuffin!
