The Sweeney

Jack or Knave - S4-E14

Factual error: When Carter is reading the newspaper there is no date on the front page.

Drag Act - S4-E3

Factual error: The squad are following the stolen lorry when it suddenly reverses across the road, causing the squad to swerve up the kerb, ripping a front wheel off the squad car. Four hours later when the body of the murdered lorry driver is found, Regan and Carter arrive at the murder scene in the same squad car. It would take more than four hours to recover the car and repair that much damage.

Hearts and Minds - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: During the car chase when the camera is inside the Sweeney Granada, a green Fiat can be seen driving in the other direction. The shot immediately changes to outside the car and the Fiat has gone.
