Where the Jungle Ends - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the trio are chasing Krivas' lorry, notice that the seat headrests in the Rover keep disappearing and reappearing between shots.

Where the Jungle Ends - S1-E6

Plot hole: When Krivas threatens to shoot Benny, the pistol's slide is locked in the open position, which indicates that the pistol is either out of cartridges, or a cartridge (or cartridge case) has jammed within the pistol and so cannot be fired. This makes any threats to shoot a bluff.

Where the Jungle Ends - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene at the airport, a wall calendar reveals it is 27th July (which could have been the real date on which it was shot - 27th July 1977), yet after the bank robbery, the newspaper headline claims that the date is 23rd November.

Where the Jungle Ends - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When the RAF planes are scrambled to intercept Krivas' plane, they keep swapping between Harriers and Jaguars. Also, the landscape keeps switching between lowlands and mountainous regions. (This is probably due to the show's producers using 'stock footage' taken from RAF Training films, supplied to them by the UK Ministry of Defence).

This, the first ever episode of the series, was first broadcast on ITV on December 30th 1977. It was repeated on ITV in 1979. Some time after this, a cut was made, which has endured on all subsequent UK TV transmissions: Just prior to the title sequence, we see Nesbitt hand Susan some drugs. In the original broadcast we then see Susan tightening her belt around her arm. Using Nesbitt's cigarette lighter to sterilise a needle, she then "shoots up" (injects the drugs in her arm). The excision may have come about because of a tightening up of censorship rules by the Independent Broadcasting Authority about the explicit use of illegal drugs on TV. However, the missing segment has been restored for the 2002 DVD release.
