Little Britain

Season 1 Episode 7 - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: In the Daffyd sketch, Daffyd has two nipple piercings. As those other gay men come through the door and he pushes them back, his right nipple ring has moved up his body - obviously a clip on. It stays there for a few moments, until the next shot where it's back on his nipple, with no time to put it back on. (00:10:05)

Season 2 Episode 1 - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the sketch with the Prime Minister, when Sebastian brings over the chocolate fingers, a shot before he brings them over there is nothing on the table. When Sebastian puts them on the table suddenly a cup has appeared. He did not bring over a cup and put it on the table, just the plate.

Continuity mistake: In the sketch with Kenny Craig, just after his mother brings in the sugar, the pot of sugar is quite close to the cups of tea. However in the next shot when Kenny hypnotises her and makes her not watch Songs of Praise, the sugar pot is now further away from the cups of tea.

Season 2 Episode 1 - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the first Andy and Lou sketch, when Andy sees the intro to 'The Price Is Right', there is a cup in front of him. However in the next shot Lou brings one over and it is the same one in the same position as in the first shot. Obviously the second shot was filmed first.

Season 1 Episode 3 - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Dafyyd and Myfanwy are talking about what things gay people can do, keep an eye on Dafyyd's drink. In one shot, it is half full, and then it cuts to a close-up of him and when it cuts back, it's nearly empty. (00:13:15)
