The Reichenbach Fall - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Moriarty puts the gum on the glass case around the crown jewels, the gum moves between shots.

The Reichenbach Fall - S2-E3

Plot hole: For the supposed code that hacks into UK system, Sherlock deduces that the finger taps are counted as 1s in the binary code and the rest (while Moriarty's fingers are in the air) are taken as 0s. Sherlock can't know the rate at which the rests are counted in the binary code that he thinks Moriarty tapped out. So even if the key code was real, he wouldn't have known what it was.

The Reichenbach Fall - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sherlock is on the roof of the hospital with Moriarty, when Moriarty shoots himself in the mouth, when the camera shot quickly changes from a close up and Sherlock moves back, the gun disappears from Moriarty's hand (to the right of Sherlock). In the next shot of him, it's still in his hand.

A Scandal in Belgravia - S2-E1

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.
