Sherlock

Many Happy Returns - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: The underground car seen in the CCTV video is a different car design from the one where the heroes defuse the bomb (central line design vs another design). The rounded doors is the most visible proof.

Suggested correction: The Underground Car seen is a Jubilee Line stock (1996) however is reportedly the District Line, it is also different to the car with the bomb later in the episode as the one with the bomb is actually a District Line train (D stock).

His Last Vow - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the lab where they're testing Sherlock for drugs, Sherlock stands with his arms folded, then down, then folded, then down. Molly goes to reproach him, his arms are folded. The slaps somehow happen with his arms down.

Continuity mistake: When Sherlock is being rushed to the hospital, when the paramedic rips open his shirt the body has body hair, but all the topless scenes following show that Cumberbatch has a hairless chest.

The Empty Hearse - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: The train carriage that disappears is a Jubilee line carriage. These trains have the bars inside them painted bright yellow. However, later on in the episode when Sherlock discovers the disappeared carriage, it has magically turned into a District line carriage (the bars inside are bright green).

The Sign of Three - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: The scene where Sherlock says "Vatican Cameos" he is seen to be facing the right side of the shot. Yet in the shot before that he is facing the left side of the shot from the back.

The Empty Hearse - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: As Sherlock and John approach the missing subway car, and especially as they bend to peer beneath it, the interior of the car to a distance of several feet is plainly visible through the window of the door (you can see the curved ceiling inside and some unlit fluorescent light bars). However, an interior shot then shows that there is a closed door inside the car, a foot or so inside the exterior door, that Sherlock has to push open to enter the car proper. This door should have blocked their view of the inside of the car before they entered. It didn't, so it has gone from open to closed between shots without anyone touching it. (01:05:35)

The Sign of Three - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Sherlock is dancing with the bridesmaid towards the end. When they stop and are talking with Watson, Sherlock's hands keep switching from being behind him to in front of him, depending on the camera angle.
