Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In episode one, Alex Drake goes into Gene Hunt's office and tries to log on using the computer she finds there. The computer shows a specific date: 17-07-81. The computer is an IBM Model 5150 Personal Computer, which did not go on sale until August 12th 1981, almost a month later.

Correction: The computer appears to be a (Commodore PET) CBM 4000 series computer, not a IBM Model 5150 Personal Computer. The CBM 4000 series was launched in 1980.

Episode #1.8 - S1-E8

Factual error: When the bullion van leaves the yard a 1995 N reg Rover 600 is parked on the left hand side of the road, before Ray drives off in his Granada. In 1982 the Rover 600 was not even on the drawing board.

Trivia: When Alex goes into the Blitz Club, she hands her coat to the cloakroom attendant, saying, "Thank you, George". This is a sly reference to the singer Boy George, who, before becoming famous just one year later, really was the cloakroom attendant at the Blitz Club.
