Love and Death - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: On the train at the start, after everyone has left except Victor and Margret, you can see a boom operator reflected in the door's glass panel. You can see him and it's even more noticeable when he lowers the boom for when Victor sits down. (00:04:05)

Only a Story - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Margaret is about to confront Victor with the truth about his reflexology, in the first shot that pans over to Margaret on the very left of the screen, a hand appears and pulls the door back. It can't be Jean as we see her leaving the room to go upstairs a few shots earlier.

Things Aren't Simple Anymore - S6-E6

Visible crew/equipment: While the song The end of the line is playing and as the credits appear on screen look at the back window of the Meldrews car, you can see the helicopter used for the high up scenes reflected in the glass.

The Big Sleep - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: A minute or so after the health and fitness instructer dies, we see her lying flat out on her back. If you look carefully, you can see her chest moving up and down and breathing despite being dead. (00:13:05)

Suggested correction: If you actually watch the whole episode you will find she didn't die at all.

At what point in the show did they reveal the instructor didn't die? It was the old lady who had just fainted.

Agreed. It's actually a plot point of the episode at the end.

I'm a big fan of this comedy and have probably watched each episode 20 times! I struggle to recall any mention of the fitness instructor not being dead.

More quotes from One Foot in the Grave

Trivia: The Christmas Special that aired in 1995, was initially intended as the series' finale, and would have seen Victor being killed while saving Margaret who was being attacked by a madman. The 1997 special was then intended to end the series with Margaret dying from a heart attack brought on from the strain of Victor's misadventures, but on both occasions the production crew got cold feet. It wasn't until the final series in 2000 that the team, in David Renwick's words, "plucked up the courage to kill Victor."
