Countdown - S2-E9

Plot hole: Avon drills the last hole through the bomb's tubing and then, with the drill still in place, has to hunt down the dropped rod needed to block the plunger. Tense drama ensues while it's found and inserted, though simply leaving the drill bit in there would have worked just as well. (00:44:55)

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)

Factual error: Avon and Grant use an electric torch to melt the ice covering the bomb. When it's removed from its hiding place, it is suddenly completely dry and clean: not a trace of ice, water or dirt on it anywhere. (00:36:00)

Character mistake: Much drama ensues from which wire to cut; ("Right. NO, Left!"). However, the wires are coloured (L-R from our viewpoint: blue, red, green). There is no need for this confusion.
