Bad Blood - S4-E2

Factual error: In this episode - in 1942 - streptomycin is used to cure anthrax infection. But streptomycin was first isolated in 1943, and first used successfully - on Sen. Bob Dole - in 1946.

Mistakes

In episode 2-4 "The Funk Hole " which takes place in the fall of 1940, Andrew states to Sam that his mother died when he was eight years old. In this episode (Feb to June 1941), Foyle is looking at his wife's grave; it shows his mother died in 1932, which would have meant Andrew was born in 1924, and only 16 in 1940, far too young to be a Spitfire pilot. Also, his commanding officer states "the younger pilots look up to you, Andrew", before one of the "younger" pilots (age 19) is badly burned in a crash in Andrew's plane.
