One Foot in the Grave

The Beast in the Cage - S3-E4

Deliberate mistake: In the shot where we see the cars in front of Victor's (shortly after Victor gets out of the car and gets back in when the traffic starts moving) you can see that after the white car on the right that there are no more cars even though the episode takes place in a traffic queue! If you listen to the commentary on the DVD, writer David Renwick points out the mistake and informs us that they had a limited number of cars for the shot. (00:11:25)

It wasn't until the final series in 2000 that the team, in David Renwick's words, "plucked up the courage to kill Victor."
