New this month Other mistake: When Sherlock was slapped, he later says he was surprised because the girl who slapped him was a "lefty." Then he rubs his right cheek and says it's leathery from all the slaps he's gotten, while the left is soft. This is backwards - anyone hitting him with their right hand would hit his left cheek.

New this month Continuity mistake: Just before Sherlock and Detective Bell enter the dead professor's office, both are putting on gloves. Sherlock puts on the left first and has partially put on the right. As they enter the office, Sherlock still hasn't put the right glove on at all - he's just starting to do so.
Continuity mistake: Sherlock and Watson are riding in a limousine. They are seated on the back-facing seats of the limo. Thee are 2 passengers seating on the back seats. The street background visible through the back and side windows shows traffic and the limo moving forward. Some shots of Sherlock show the background traffic moving in the right direction (backwards) and one shot shows traffic moving in the opposite direction, as if Sherlock was seating on the back seat or the limo was moving In reverse.
Character mistake: They are in the interrogation room questioning the fiancé of the scientist Natasha when the captain says, "the blood we found at the scene of your fiance's murder, it didn't belong to Bobby Cordero." The characters name was Benny Cordero, which the captain says correctly a few lines later.
Continuity mistake: The brownstone has two front doors, an outer door and an inner door. In scenes before this one and after this one, the outer door is made of wood and the inner door has a large glass panel, at the top, but in this episode the outer door has a large glass panel, at the top, so they can see who it is before opening the door.
Continuity mistake: When Sherlock first accuses Irene of working for Moriarty, he pins her to a bookcase. When she shoves him away and breaks free, her hair ends up arranged with some strands in front of her. During the following minute, those strands repeatedly switch back and forth from behind her shoulders to in front of them.
Continuity mistake: While Joan and Sherlock are chatting, Joan is trying to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but the shots alternate between the two and Joan repeats her movements, wipes the peanut butter over and over on the bread, and changes her mind with the jelly bread.
Other mistake: Near the end of the episode Dr. Watson states, "Look at the time, happy 'real' anniversary." - referring to Sherlock's one year anniversary of sobriety. The scene then cuts to a flip clock. However, the clock is set to 12:07 PM - not AM as it would be if a new day had begun.
Continuity mistake: When Detective Bell receives a phone call from Gregson in Holmes' house, he rushes upstairs and bangs on the bathroom door - Sherlock is inside, he said he wanted a shower. Bell rattles the handle, but finds the door locked, so he kicks the door in. But Sherlock didn't lock the door. The lock is above the handle and Sherlock did not use it.
