To The Last Man - S2-E3

Corrected entry: The death sentence for cowardice was abolished in 1917, a year before Tommy gets executed.

Josman

Correction: The last real-life execution for cowardice took place in 1917, but it was not officially abolished at that point. The death penalty for cowardice remained on the British statute books until 1930 when it was finally, after a couple of previous failures, abolished after years of campaigning by MP (and former soldier) Ernest Thurtle. As such it is entirely reasonable that a fictional character like Tommy could have been executed for the crime in 1918.

To The Last Man - S2-E3

Corrected entry: The British army abandoned firing squads in 1917, a year before Tomy gets shot.

Correction: Firing squads were still in use as late as 1941, when German spy Josef Jakobs was executed in the Tower of London using that method.

Mistakes

When the children are possessed by the 456, they're supposed to be frozen and stare blankly ahead. But during the second possession, as the camera is panning across a school playground, a boy on the far right is looking directly at it. As it moves closer to him, he swivels his eyes back to where they're supposed to be.

Trivia

The hand preserved in a glass jar in the Torchwood HQ is the severed hand of Doctor Who which he lost in a duel during the Christmas special. The hand features quite prominently in episode 1 but can also be seen in the background in most episodes.
