London's Burning

Episode #4.7 - S4-E7

Factual error: In this episode Blackwall Station is shown as a London Underground tube station. Blackwall Station is a Docklands Light Rail (DLR) station. Also look at the destination sign on the front of the train, which reads 'THAMES LINE', No such line/station exists on the London Underground.

Episode #7.7 - S7-E7

Factual error: In this episode Nick rides the pump. However, being Station Officer, he should be riding the pump ladder. The London Fire Brigade always has the Station Officer in charge of the pump ladder and not the pump (it's the Sub Officer who is in charge of it).

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Not so. Until Series 8, when a point was specifically made about it, the Station Officer rode the Pump, while the Sub Officer was in charge of the Pump Ladder. This was consistent through the first seven series.

Season 13 generally

Factual error: In series 13, when phone numbers are referred to, they usually start 0808 (even mobile numbers). UK phone numbers starting with those numbers are freephone numbers and wouldn't be used for private use, or even for mobiles (which all start with 07).
