Sunflower - S8-E3

Factual error: SS officers did not carry a unit identification tattoo on the forearm, as implied in this episode. Most (but not all) carried a small, black, blood group tattoo under the armpit.

The Eternity Ring - S8-E1

Factual error: The episode takes place in 1946. Numerous scenes are shown in which the public buildings are clean. In 1946 they were soot streaked and grimy black and white from generations of coal fires and pollution. In addition one street scene has a street sign on a pole with a modern graphical notice on it rather than a worded notice of the time. Also, in the same scene the street name plate has a rather updated type face.
