Character mistake: It is mentioned several times that the Larkins' holiday to France takes place in August. Whilst on the beach, Ma Larkin says that Mariette and Charlie's first wedding anniversary is the following week. However, it is established in the previous two part episode, 'When the Green Woods Laugh', that their wedding date is the seventh of July, the same date that Pop has to appear in court.
Continuity mistake: When Mademoiselle Dupont is arriving in the car, Ma and Mariette are standing in the garden, holding their babies, John and Oscar, and waving at the car. Then Mademoiselle Dupont steps out of the car and they run to meet her. Mariette is still carrying John but Ma is no longer holding Oscar. He isn't sitting on the ground and no-one else is carrying him either.
Other mistake: In a previous episode ("A Breath of French Air") Ma explains to a french fisherman that she's used to cooking fish as the Larkins have both a pond and a river near their home. In this episode Montgomery complains that there is nowhere around for him to fish.
Other mistake: The court summons is delivered and states the case is to be heard on July 7th, which is the same date as Mariette's wedding. When the case starts, the charge is read to the court and states the date of the alleged assault of August 23rd, which would be 6 weeks in the future.
