Blake's 7

Time Squad - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During Blake's first encounter with Cally, the smudges on the front of his tunic (including a big chalky footprint left by her boot) disappear, reappear and rearrange themselves several times between shots.

00:31:20

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Vargas beams up to the Liberator just ahead of Blake, Gan & Vila, he challenges them when they arrive from the other side of the room - by stepping out of the teleport bay. But they're standing in the teleport bay, and Liberator has only one. So exactly where is Vargas standing?

00:48:15

Jean G

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At the end, Blake teleports Vargas, who's wearing a long purple robe, out into space. But the figure we see materializing in space isn't in a robe. It appears to be wearing a spacesuit instead.

00:49:15

Jean G

Space Fall - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Though no one touches him, the London crewman lying dead in the transfer tube changes positions between the time Blake and co. first board Liberator, and the time Raiker enters the tube and shoots at Blake.

00:44:10 - 00:49:00

Jean G

Space Fall - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: At the end of "The Way Back," Blake, strapped in his prison ship seat, looks over his shoulder at the window behind him as the ship leaves Earth. This same scene is recapped at the beginning of "Spacefall," only now Blake is sitting one seat to the left of the window instead of directly in front of it.

00:49:00

Jean G

Project Avalon - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: During the firefight in the detention corridors, the blaster holes in the metal wall Jenna's firing toward keep changing, sometimes disappearing altogether. One of them is created twice, appearing as the troopers duck out of sight, vanishing and then reappearing in the same spot when Jenna fires again.

00:36:00

Jean G

Space Fall - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: A large white cushion, knocked askew when Blake tosses Avon over the flight couch, has righted itself a few shots later, as Avon gets up from the deck.

00:46:25

Jean G

Time Squad - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: The alien hiding in the hold throws a large blue tool at Jenna. It strikes her on the back of her right arm. But in the next shot, she's holding her left arm, and Gan later treats a bruise on her left arm, nowhere near the spot where the tool hit her.

00:27:45

Jean G

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: The damaged Orac has long loose wires hanging out when Dorian carries it off the ship, but they disappear in the next shot, when he enters the base.

00:24:40

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Muller and Vila have a brief struggle over the teleport console. When Muller grabs at the controls, Vila pulls his hand away, making the teleport lever break off and fall onto the console. It fixes itself again a short time later.

00:06:05

Jean G

Power - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Cato's body moves to a different spot on the floor relative to the unconscious Avon, who also moves. (The two are suddenly much farther apart than before.) Cato's hands also change positions.

00:31:40 - 00:35:00

Jean G

Volcano - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: The Liberator gun Avon uses to kill two of the three troopers on the flight deck disappears entirely between shots after he's hit by the third trooper's return fire.

00:33:50

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Muller's wife teleports holding her spacesuit gloves with the fingers pointing up. She arrives with them in the same position, but when the shot cuts, they've reversed positions and the fingers are now pointing down.

00:28:40

Jean G

The Harvest of Kairos - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Jarvik and Dayna teleport up at the end, her bracelet disappears as they materialize in the teleport bay, but is back when they reach the flight deck a few seconds later.

00:44:30

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Relative to the white striping on Scorpio's deck, the unconscious Vila changes locations on the floor three times between shots.

00:21:10

Jean G

Gold - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Dayna and Tarrant find Keeler unconscious, Tarrant's teleport bracelet disappears between shots. It's back a few shots later, though.

00:15:40 - 00:16:10

Jean G

Powerplay - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Avon refers to Tarrant hitting him "over the back of the head." But Tarrant didn't. He struck Avon from the front, on the forehead, and not from behind.

00:05:30 - 00:40:45

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: The headless android falls into a pile of rubble after an explosion, getting up with its red, white & blue striped costume in smudgy tatters. A moment later, its outfit is mended and completely clean. Still later, when the android is walking outside, its costume is dirty and shredded again.

00:33:30 - 00:35:00

Jean G

Breakdown - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Liberator's orientation relative to the space station changes. As viewed from inside the administrator's office, the ship is "parked" parallel, with its port side against the station. But in the subsequent exterior view, Liberator suddenly has its bow pointed directly at the station instead.

Jean G

Blake - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: Just before Scorpio crashes, Avon grabs Orac and teleports to safety. When they're still aboard the ship, Orac has several wires hanging loose from underneath. When they materialize on the planet, however, all the loose wires are magically repaired and no longer hanging.

00:16:30 - 00:17:45

Jean G

Horizon - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Jenna's bracelet changes from her right to her left wrist in mid-teleport when she and Blake go down to the planet.

00:10:00

Jean G

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Avon apparently found a hair salon somewhere on the supposedly deserted planet Terminal. Between the time he and his crew were marooned in the previous episode and the events in this one, he's suddenly acquired a spiffy new blow-dry haircut.

00:03:10

Jean G

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Tarrant's hair seems to have grown at least an inch overnight. It's longer and bushier than it was in "Terminal," which supposedly took place the day before.

00:09:45

Jean G

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: The planet Terminal changes shape and color completely from its appearance in the previous episode. Where it was blue-green and cigar shaped before, it is now gray, striped like a yarn ball, and round.

00:07:00

Jean G

Traitor - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Tarrant and Dayna mug a pair of Helotrix citizens and change clothes with them. Later, when the pair are beamed back to Scorpio, they change back into their original costumes in mid-teleport.

00:44:05

Jean G

Countdown - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: Provine shoots the rebel guarding the rocket in the chest. But later, when his body is found, the man is bleeding from the mouth instead, and the blood pooled on the floor beside him changes from beside his head to above his head between shots.

00:21:10 - 00:42:00

Jean G

Gold - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Tarrant beams down to the refinery complex and back again without a teleport bracelet.

Add time

Jean G

Power - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: At the end, Dayna and Tarrant, shortly followed by Soolin and Vila, all teleport to Scorpio without wearing the necessary bracelets.

00:47:35

Jean G

City at the Edge of the World - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: The probe Vila uses to collapse the door's forcefield vanishes when the forcefield actually collapses.

00:24:05

DaveJB

Games - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: The computer simulation shoots Gerren in the left shoulder, but when the Scorpio crew teleport him up to let Soolin render first aid, he's holding his right shoulder instead.

00:06:30 - 00:08:00

Jean G

Moloch - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: In his scuffle with Servalan's trooper, Vila's teleport bracelet falls off and rolls away. We're even shown a close-up of it as it comes to rest near the dropped gun. Yet in the very next shot, as the fight continues, the bracelet is back on Vila's wrist.

00:37:20

Jean G

Dawn of the Gods - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: As the ship falls into the black hole, Cally loses consciousness with her right hand beneath her head. A few shots later, her position reverses and she's lying with her left hand under her head.

00:10:40 - 00:11:35

Jean G

Animals - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: Maybe he ran into a barber along the way? Avon beams into the woods on Bucol 2 with his hair brushed straight back, but a few shots later, it's restyled and combed neatly down over his forehead.

00:43:35 - 00:44:45

Jean G

Voice from the Past - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In the final scenes on the planet, Blake's teleport bracelet appears and disappears repeatedly between shots. It reappears the final time just before he snatches it off and tosses it away to avoid being teleported up.

00:44:35

Jean G

Mission to Destiny - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Avon is removing the gas canister from the ventilation system, an insert close-up of his hands shows that he's wearing a wedding ring. In the full shots, however, the ring isn't there.

00:09:50

Jean G

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Vila makes an improbable costume change in this episode. He's wearing one outfit at the end of "Terminal," when Liberator is destroyed, and another outfit entirely here, where he's supposedly marooned on the planet with the remainder of the crew. Did he take time to smuggle a spare set of clothes off the ship, even though it was disintegrating at the time?

00:03:30

Jean G

Orac - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Cally puts her teleport bracelet on in the teleport room, it's on her right wrist. After she and Blake materialize on the planet's surface, the bracelet has mysteriously moved to her left wrist instead.

00:20:00 - 00:21:20

Jean G

Animals - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Avon & Co. barnstorm the ruined lab, a large piece of plastic debris on the floor is there when they enter, but then disappears between takes. Avon actually slips on it coming in, and does a hilariously un-macho little balancing dance. To quote (and agree with) actor Paul Darrow: "I can't believe they left that in!"

00:45:00

Jean G

Sarcophagus - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: The little plastic dome Tarrant places on the alien artifact, connecting it to Orac, disappears when the object begins to disintegrate.

00:24:25

Jean G

Horizon - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When the crew teleports up at the end, the shirtless Vila arrives in a completely different position relative to the others. On the surface, he's standing in a ring with the rest of them. When they materialize, he's hunched over and is now in the middle of their circle with the others around him.

00:42:25

Jean G

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: The weather on Terminal has changed from Summer to Winter overnight. When Avon first beams down, it's obviously warm and all the trees have leaves. The very next day, all the trees are bare and there's snow all over the ground.

00:01:30

Jean G

Traitor - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: The president-elect's body changes both poses and locations on the floor between the time Sleer shoots him and the time he's found and the murder investigation is begun.

00:26:00 - 00:31:25

Jean G

Gambit - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: The molecularly miniaturized Orac has been hidden in a metal box while Avon & Vila smuggle him into the casino. Back on the ship, Orac returns to his normal size, but the metal case around him doesn't get larger too - it instantly disappears.

00:50:15

Jean G

Games - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: Orac is in two places at once: he's sitting on the console, plainly visible in front of Dayna as she calls the landing party - but in the next shot of the crew over on the orbiter, Vila is holding Orac.

00:40:45

Jean G

Deliverance - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Meegat peeks at the rocket through the oval space Gan has cleaned on the dirty glass. The shape of this space changes dramatically when the camera angle switches to the other side of the pane.

00:39:15

Jean G

City at the Edge of the World - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Dayna's outfit is skin-tight and she's not carrying any sort of backpack. So just where was she hiding that rather large robotic bomb she sends down the hall to blow up Bayban's goons? (The pack on her belt isn't a storage pouch - it's the Liberator handgun's power unit. Note that Avon, Tarrant and Cally wear identical packs, with the guns plugged into them. And it isn't large enough to hold the mobile bomb anyway, not even disassembled.)

00:35:10

Jean G

Breakdown - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: The XK72 space station has a distinctive shape, with a large ringed aft section that's to the right of the screen every time we see it. Liberator is moving past that section at the end, passing on the right. But in the next shot, the ship is abruptly heading away from the station, which is still in the same position, and flying left, in the opposite direction.

00:47:15

Jean G

Gold - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: After revealing Avon & Soolin are still alive, there is no magazine in Avon's gun.

Add time

Gold - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Dayna plants the grenade by the right-hand upright of the ladder. Yet when it detonates you can see the blast is to the left and in front of the guard; presumably to prevent it from going off right in the stuntman's face.

Add time

Assassin - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: During the punch-up with Cancer, Tarrant's holster is missing.

Add time

Gold - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When they shoot open the crate containing the gold, Avon is on the left & Keeler on the right. Avon fires and we see the right-hand lock explode, then Keeler shoots and the left-hand lock pops.

Add time

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: After Scorpio has landed on Xenon, the lift rotates 180 ready for launch. Yet after Pella boards the ship, it is seen rotating again.

Add time

Ultraworld - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Dayna & Tarrant are "bonding" they are not wearing their gun belts. Yet the shot of them running down a corridor immediately after escaping shows Dayna has hers on. In the next scene, it's gone again. Later Avon & Tarrant recover three gun belts from the control room.

Add time

Shadow - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Cally's hair is longer & curlier in the film sequences (on the planet) than in the studio sequences (on the Liberator).

Trivia

It's not every day you can shoot your wife in front of millions of witnesses and get away with it. Klyn, the woman behind the console who sounds the alarm before Avon shoots her, was played by Paul Darrow's real-life wife, Janet Lees Price.
