(12 votes)

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?

Tinker, Tailor, Liar, Thief - S8-E15

Revealing mistake: In the second close up shot of Nigel Atkins lying dead, after Jessica drops her Harrod's bag in the chair, it is obvious he is still alive as you can see his pulse on the side of his neck.

A Christmas Secret - S9-E9

Trivia: This is the only episode in the entire series where the victim is attacked but is later revealed to be still alive.

Chosen answer: This is the very reason my brother and I used to jokingly call the show, "Murder, She Caused." It's amazing she was ever on anyone's guest list for a party, given the likelihood someone would end up deceased. As to your question, most of the time, Jessica Fletcher would have had an air-tight alibi, as she was in a room full of people, or her whereabouts were accounted for when a murder occurred elsewhere. It also seems to me that there were episodes where she, purely with respect to opportunity, could have been a suspect. I believe she even acknowledged that as a logical possibility from time to time, even though she knew, of course, she was not the killer. However, the investigation would obviously rule out the possibility of her involvement, eventually.
