UFO

Show generally

Revealing mistake: UFO - Timelash - in this episode the aliens with the help of 'turncoat' Turner have frozen a moment in time in which they will attack and destroy SHADO HQ. Everything and everyone is frozen in place - except for the guy in the background walking across the road during Straker's and Turner's 'car' chase in the 'Harlington/Straker' go carts.

Revealing mistake: "Computer Affair": In the interior shots of Mobile 1's cockpit, we see that there's a crew of 3 and that the pilot is black. But in shots of the exterior (miniature model stock footage), there's only one occupant, a pilot, and it's a doll with distinctively Caucasian features.

Revealing mistake: "The Long Sleep": While Straker, Foster and Dr. Jackson are standing over Catherine's body at the end, the "dead" woman's eyelids are twitching.

Revealing mistake: "Exposed": Another piece of stock footage used throughout the series was a shot of the shiny metal sign for Harlington-Straker Studios. The clock on the side of a building is reflected in the sign's surface, always showing the same time of day - so it's 1:50 every time Straker drives by.

Revealing mistake: "Survival": Straker and Foster take off for the moon in a large red hovercraft which, even though it's launching in broad daylight, doesn't cast any shadow.

Revealing mistake: "Flight Path": When the mobile-units leave the transport carrier, you can see that both are being "driven" by dolls.

Revealing mistake: "Exposed": Due to re-used special effects footage, the submersible Sky One fighter, whenever it launched from the ocean at night, always took off under a full moon.
