Long Shot - S1-E11

Plot hole: Surely it would have made more sense for CI5 to have contacted the demolition team at the girl's hideout, instead of dodging crashing materials and great big demolition balls, ready to smash them to pieces at any moment. (However, this would not have made for as exciting a scene as Bodie and Doyle risking their lives to save the female in distress).

Long Shot - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Bodie and Doyle race back upstairs, once they realise Ramos is in the building, Cowley's office seems to have magically moved as they go to a completely different door.

Long Shot - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Bodie and Doyle escort Harbinger to the airport, they use a brown Rover P6. On returning, they drive back in a completely different car - a white Triumph Dolomite.

Long Shot - S1-E11

Factual error: Ramos uses a bolt-action rifle in the tower. Such a weapon cannot deliver three shots in rapid succession, as the bolt has to be manually pulled between each shot.

Long Shot - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: The unfortunate rat is plainly suffering from rigor mortis when Ramos places it on the electric fence, yet becomes notably more supple in Cowley's hands when he picks it up.
