Revealing mistake: On their boat trip to Tierra del Fuego there are a number of sweeping overhead shots of the ferry upon which Clarkson, Hammond and May are travelling. Their very distinctive cars are not on deck. There is nowhere on the only deck that they could be under cover. The footage of the ferry was filmed on a different voyage.
Character mistake: Both Jeremy Clarkson and his guest Sir Michael Parkinson identify "The Four Yorkshiremen" sketch - about four Yorkshiremen trying to outdo each other with their complaints about life - as a Monty Python sketch. It isn't. It is from "At Last The 1948 Show", presented by David Frost, and was first performed by Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Marty Feldman, although Monty Python have often performed it.
James: Why would Jeremy think you could make a limo out of a Fiat Panda? You could strech it a mile and it would only be as long as n a normal car.
Richard: Have you met Jeremy Clarkson? Tall man, curly hair, idiot?
