A Study in Pink - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: As Sherlock and Watson come out of their apartment to hail a taxi to be taken to Brixton and the scene of a murder, two extras can be seen in the shot - one crossing the road and one walking up the far side of the street. At the top of the street there are two white colored cars, but they suddenly disappear, to be replaced by a dark colored car. Also the light of the building across the road is suddenly turned on.

Sherlock Holmes: Punch me in the face.
John Watson: Punch you?
Sherlock Holmes: Yes, punch me in the face. Didn't you hear me?
John Watson: I always hear "punch me in the face" when you're speaking, but it's usually subtext.



When Sherlock is backstage at the circus and finds the yellow spray paint, he draws a line on the mirror. In the next shot, the line he drew is completely different (and in fact is more of a squiggle).



Sherlock's parents are played by Benedict Cumberbatch's real-life parents, Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton.
