The Broken Reflection - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: At the very start of the episode, there is some rice with a mouse in. You can tell by the way it moves that it's a machine making it move.

Love and Death - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When Victor gets the glass stuck to his head, it's obvious there is a clear piece of plastic to stop the beer spilling out. This is obvious as it never goes past a certain point, but stops instantly.

Trivia

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