Rosemary & Thyme

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the doctor is putting the bandage on Laura's hand, it ends at her wrist. But later, the bandage goes all the way to her elbow.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Plot hole: When Jeremy stopped to drink his water, which turned out to be vodka and which killed him via a heart attack, why did he hide himself away, surrounded by plants and only found by his mobile ringing? And why would he put the lid back on the bottle in the throes of a heart attack?

kh1616

Swords into Ploughshares - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Laura leaves Matt's girlfriend's parent's place, her bag is in her right hand, but suddenly it's in her left hand.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: The girls are driving when they see Karen driving the van Martina. Problem is: when the girls stopped, there was a stop sign, but when they drive on, the stop sign is missing.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Near the end, Rosemary is chased by Mrs Potts and Alysia. At first, Alysia stays behind. But suddenly she's right there, in amongst the action.

kh1616

The Gooseberry Bush - S3-E6

Plot hole: Why was the baby abandoned in the woods, when the mother, at the end of the show, seems quite happy to have him back?

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Factual error: No gearbox problem would cause the noises in the episode, it was a clutch problem.

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Factual error: Bert is using an oxygen-acetylene torch, not butane, and the stop valve is NOT the large T piece on the regulator. Butane cannot cause a heart attack.

Swords into Ploughshares - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Near the end, the girls find a big box, filled with antiquities, buried in Lord Engleton's lawn. Laura's jacket changes from before digging, to having found the box, and then back to the first one as they carry the box away.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Audio problem: When everyone is leaving the restaurant and walking down the street, some are going off for a night cap, Rosemary says she can't go because she has to work tomorrow. But her words and her mouth are out of sync, as are the others to a lesser degree.

kh1616

The Gooseberry Bush - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: After the girls have seen the site of their next job, Rosemary hands Laura the keys to the Rover. Laura has a bag over her right shoulder. When she climbs into the Rover and closes the door, the shoulder strap of her bag vanishes.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Other mistake: When Rosemary comes back from seeing her old college professor, she comes in from the garden, but Julia's place - this is where Rosemary and Laura are staying - is on the first floor; there's no access to her place from the garden. Rosemary should have gone to the front door, on the street.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Laura decides to talk to Helena for the second time, she's wearing gardening gloves, but as she walks away, the gloves are gone.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Other mistake: When the old well needs filling in, for safety reasons, Ryan is breaking up bricks. If you are filling up a well, first, you'd need lots of bricks and stones, heaps more than Ryan's small pile, and, two, why does Ryan have to break up the bricks? They're going into the well - it doesn't matter if they are big or small.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: The windowpane that is broken by the thief is in a door that desperately needs a good paint job. It's the door that leads outside and to a small room full of plants, a veranda of sorts. But when Laura looks at the door, she's looking at the inner door, which looks like it has just been painted, and, in the morning, the broken pane is covered up by a piece of wood, but, again, it's the inner door, which is totally wrong. It's the outer door's window pane that was broken.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When the girls walk into the palm shop, Rosemary's sleeves are rolled down to the wrists, but, a second later, just as she gets a large spider on her arm, her sleeves are rolled up to the elbows, so now the spider can bite her.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: In order to meet the Queen, Laura stands up from her last minute toils in the herb garden and she has a plant in her her left hand and a trowel in her right. Suddenly, the trowel is gone.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Rosemary has her glasses in her hand and she tries a couple of times to get her glasses case out of her bag, but she doesn't succeed - except, suddenly, her glasses are gone.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: On the second night at Julia's, Laura has insomnia again and this time she gets up and goes down to the gardens, which are bathed in light - much more than from a full moon. When Mr Elliott turns up while the girls are working, Laura says to him "Were you out star gazing last night, Mr Elliott?" And he says "Indeed I was, a partial lunar eclipse in wonderful darkness."

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: Near the end, where Rosemary is driving the tractor and delivering wet steam to kill the weeds, you can see the vines moving as the camera brushes them aside as it closes in on Rosemary.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: As they are sitting around, discussing what to do after Charlie's death, Bobby, in the long shot, is just sitting there, but, in the close up, she is holding the ends of her hair against the wind.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When they all line up for the Queen, Ryan is standing next to Rosemary, but suddenly he's gone.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Other mistake: In the beginning, when Julia shows the girls the private gardens, Julia is standing behind them, until suddenly she is standing beside them as she says "Impressed?"

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Near the end, Rosemary has a photo in her right hand. When Dr Fairborne starts to get aggressive, at first, Rosemary tries to keep the photo away from him, but when he grabs her and threatens her with a scythe on her neck, the photo has vanished.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Character mistake: After Laura and Rosemary attend Evensong in the church, Rosemary remarks, "I think it's amazing that they perform the same service every week for hundreds of years." But they had Evensong the day before. If they do it every week, how can they do it two days running?

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: Near the end, the killer, with his pistol, is 3 large steps away from the narrow road, but when Rosemary comes by on the motor scooter he's somehow close enough for her to knock the pistol out of his hand.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Rosemary visits Hamilton Teed, he shows her a picture of Martin and Jim, aged 10, then puts the photo down on the desk, but a second later, the photo is gone.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Character mistake: When Laura says that Alyssa was probably only sleeping with the doctor so he wouldn't be able to testify against her, the doctor says "She's my patient, nothing more." But she isn't his patient, her husband is.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Laura goes to see Helena, after they've made up, Helena has a chisel in her right hand, but not for long - suddenly, it's gone.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Rosemary finds her second bunch of smooth ink cap mushrooms and picks one, then declares, "Fungus Ferguson. My old college professor," who will be able to tell Rosemary what is special about smooth ink caps - this has been bugging Rosemary for days - and then grabs her cardigan without dealing with the mushroom in her hands, which is no longer to be seen.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Plot hole: When Eddie finds the hammer that killed Cousin Jim, Rosemary and Laura are on his tail, so he rushes to the river, and so does Martin and the constable. Problem is: Eddie and the girls are on one side of the river and Martin and the constable are on the other side of a river that is impossible to cross where they are - there are bridges, but not there. So, if Martin and the constable were heading for the hammer, why did they go to the wrong side of the river? It's all very dramatic, as Eddie has to dive into the water, but it's ridiculous, plot-wise.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When the girls are just finishing their look of the walled garden, Laura's scarf that has been visible on both sides up until now vanishes on the left side, then it comes and goes repeatedly.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: At dinner, there is a red wine bottle that stands in the middle of the table, but when Trish arrives, the bottle is now on her placemat.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: While the girls are packing up Charlie's belongings after he died, Rosemary brings out the small bag from the bathroom. Laura is seen rummaging around in the bag, looking for Charlie's auto-injector, but she just moves them around, until the next shot, where she suddenly has half of the items out of the bag and in her hand.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Rosemary is riding on the back of a motor scooter. Problem is: when the green screen is being used, Rosemary's jacket is light-brown, and when stunt doubles are being used and it's not a green screen her jacket is now dark-brown.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: After the Custos's house has been broken into, the next day, the Custos takes a key out of his jacket pocket, unlocks a drawer and takes out a pile of bound papers. When he closes the drawer, he doesn't take the key out of the lock, but he pantomimes his hand returning the key to his pocket.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When the police are interviewing people about Mr Volker's death, the girls are talking to the lawnmower man, who turns the ignition on and releases the brake, but in the next shot he reaches down to release the brake, despite having already done it.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Other mistake: The girls are staying with Julia whose house starts on the first floor, so she has no direct access to the gardens, but when Laura comes back to Julia's place, she enters via the gardens.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Laura is clearing the herb garden, on the first day, she overhears Mr Bingham arguing with the Dean; in her hands, she has a very large pair of scissors; but when she turns away, she is now holding a scythe.

kh1616

The Tree of Death - S1-E6

Character mistake: When interviewed by the police, Rosemary says "You do know where the arrow came from? It came from Mr Danvers' collection." But Lyle, the resident archery expert, would have his own collection of bows and arrows.

kh1616

The Tree of Death - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Laura finds the missing bow in the church, and it has the string attached, but when the policeman holds it up, the string is missing.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Just before the girls leave Helena's, Laura wants to try out the new lights, but when she turns them on - there are 7 of them - they all blow, but 15 bulbs blow, not 7.

kh1616

Swords into Ploughshares - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: At the end, Rosemary has her bag over her right shoulder when she gets into the Rover, but once in, the bag is gone.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, the girls have one wheelbarrow out of the Land Rover, with a few tools in it, but after they say hello to Julia, they suddenly have two wheelbarrows out of the Rover and a lot of tools in both of them.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: The first time the girls park outside Helena's place, they park further away from Helena's red door, as does the motorcycle in front of them - both of them park outside a blue door. But when Helena opens her red door, the Rover and motorcycle are right outside.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Bobby approaches Ray about money, as he comes down the stairs she has a bag over her right shoulder, but in the next shot the bag is gone.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the end, Rosemary is attacked by Mrs Potts with a large knife that cuts Rosemary on the left arm, but there's no blood, anywhere.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When the big palm tree is being installed, Laura is giving instructions from down below, but depending on the direction of the shot - from down below or up above - Rosemary is missing half the time.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Character mistake: When Laura attempts to feel Karen's pulse on her carotid artery, after the van rolled down a hill, she says she's dead; unfortunately, Laura's fingers are too high on Karen's neck; the carotid artery is deep into the middle of the neck, not high up.

kh1616

The Tree of Death - S1-E6

Other mistake: At the end, when a policeman pulls an arrow out of Franklin's shoulder, there's no sign of pain or blood, on the arrow or on Franklin's clothes.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Plot hole: Laura says she knows it's Sam's car in the accident because she recognised the registration number, but the car was angled down too deeply; there's no way she could have seen it.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When the girls are loading the truck with plants for the second time, they are told that the big palm tree will be delivered tomorrow. But there are 4 smaller palm trees that magically appear - the girls didn't take them in their truck and they weren't delivered, but they're there.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Other mistake: When the girls see Dan in hospital, his IV is dripping, but in another shot we can see that the wheel on the IV that controls how fast the IV is dripping is turned off; it's right at the bottom, so it can't be dripping.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Bobby corners Ray at the bottom of the stairs, which, I assume, lead to Ray and Blanca's private quarters, there is a swimming pool behind Bobby. At first, there's no-one near the pool, but, in the next shot, there are people dangling their feet in the water and a man asking Ray for the papers, plus more.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: The first time Laura attempts to enter the Ebenezer Scrooge room she can't fit and Rosemary has to give her a couple of hard shoves from behind. But, later, she goes in and out easily.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Other mistake: When Laura is directing the planting of a very large palm tree, she says something in Spanish and points to her left; but the man installing the palm moves it to the right - the exact opposite - but suddenly it's perfect.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Angus is found dead, Daisy has her hands steepled in front of her face, but, in the next shot, her hands are lowered to her chin - except in the mirror, where they are still steepled in front of her face.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When the girls are standing in the doorway of Anges's room, considering staying there, in the reflection of the mirror, Rosemary's hand is over her mouth, but, in the next shot, not in the mirror, her hand is over her forehead.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: At the very end, the girls, Ben and Burt are celebrating with champagne, but Laura's glass isn't as full as it was in the previous shot and, if you look closely, you can see that she only pretends to take a sip.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Character mistake: When Angus is found dead, he left a word, "murder", in steam on the mirror. Daisy cleaned off the word before anybody, except Laura, could see it. Later, Daisy said that Laura was annoyed with her because she had wiped the words, plural, off the mirror. But it was only one word.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Character mistake: When Rosemary is told that the hotel the girls are staying in used to be used for movie locations until it was restored, she says that the names on the rooms are film titles and Ben, the brother of the man who runs the hotel, agrees with her. Problem is: the girls' room is called Ebenezer Scrooge, but he is a character from the book "A Christmas Carol." And Lorna Doone, another room, is a character from the self-titled book written in 1869. It was eventually made into 2 TV movies in 1990 and 2000. It's more likely the rooms are named after very much classic characters, because the hotel was used for old movies.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Factual error: When Rosemary finds Mr Teed's dead body, the kettle is boiling. It's the type that will keep boiling until someone turns off the stove or takes it off the heat; neither of these things happen, and yet, before the scene is finished, the kettle stops making that boiling sound.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Other mistake: At the very end, Sherry's wrist is not red, as it should be, after being rammed in the desk drawer by Laura, when she went to get her gun.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: When the lawnmower man crashes his lawnmower, his right leg has some sort of protection on it; it can be seen by the cut of his pants.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: About halfway through, when the girls are sitting at the dining-room table and Martin walks in with a decanter of red wine, he proceeds to fill the girl's glasses, but not his own, and yet, in the next shot, his glass is filled.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Other mistake: When the girls are driving to their new job, the instructions were "turn left when you see the post box". But they turn left and then see the post box.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Plot hole: The girls refer to Holly's owner as Mr Volker, even though they now know her owner is Mr Allbright. For plot reasons, they have to say to Sherry that Mr Volker is Holly's owner, because now she knows she's killed the wrong man, and she'll have to kill again.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When we first meet Hibby, and after the girls sit down, Hibby has her arm resting on the divider between the two benches; then, in the next shot, her arm is resting on her bag.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Audio problem: Near the end, Suzanne puts the dishwasher on, which is in the kitchen, near the long kitchen table they are all sitting around. At first, we can hear the dishwasher, not very loudly but it's there, but when they expose Suzanne as the killer, the dishwasher is all but silent even though its been running for at most 10 minutes, so it should still be noisy.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When the lawnmower man crashes his machine, he is thrown clear, but in the next shot his leg is supposed to be caught under the lawnmower.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, the Land Rover has something on the roof, like a ladder, but not long afterwards there's nothing on the roof.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Other mistake: If Laura's sore is only on the back of her hand, why does she need a bandage that goes all the way down to her elbow?

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Laura & Rosemary pull up in the Land Rover, seeing Sam's car in the ditch, Laura's seat belt is on, but in the next shot it's gone.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the beginning, Alisa is supposed to be putting cream on her husband's left arm, but, while she has a great glob on her fingers, no cream ends up on the arm.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The first time we see the land rover, Rosemary's hair is flat, with the window closed; then, suddenly, her hair is being blown around, as if the window is open to accommodate a camera.

kh1616

The Memory of Water - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Laura finds the hammer with blood and hair on it, Rosemary finds the constable and tells him where the hammer is. When we first see the constable's car, it's in a ditch. But when he gets into it and drives away, it's no longer in the ditch, but beside the road.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Plot hole: At the very end, Julia calls Matt, a policeman, at Helena's place, to tell him to come and help his mother and Rosemary who are being held against their will. But Matt doesn't have a mobile, so how did Julia know he was at Helena's place, so she could ring him there and save the day? No-one knew he was at Helena's and it's the middle of the night. Matt should have been in bed asleep.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Plot hole: When Jeremy is found dead from a heart attack, for some reason, the girls talk about him taking something that caused his heart attack, or someone giving him something to cause his heart attack. People have heart attacks all the time, and Jeremy had "a dodgy ticker", so there's no reason for them to only think it's a "suspicious" heart attack.

kh1616

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Other mistake: When Rosemary is bitten by a spider, Laura says how pretty it was, with red and black stripes on its abdomen. Problem is: we don't get to see its abdomen - Rosemary wipes it away with her hand - and all we saw was black, no red in sight.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Plot hole: When Daisy is killed, Dan comes around to collect her things. So we'll be able to see him reading one of Daisy's love letters from Ben and accuse Ben of Daisy's murder, when Dan takes the box from Stuart, who is holding it with his hands underneath, keeping everything in, he holds the box with his hands on the side, deliberately, so the love letters fall out to the ground - and how convenient that nothing else falls out, just the love letters. But the letters were written before the girls arrived - they saw them - so how could Dan accuse Ben when the blue one has Ben asking Daisy to meet him in the summer house, but it was days ago, not relevant now.

The Tree of Death - S1-E6

Plot hole: When Rosemary discovers the side door to the church and a plastic knock, from an arrow, on the floor, she jumps to the conclusion that the arrow was shot from the side door. This all makes sense - this knowledge is how they catch Mr Danvers - but there are too many branches from the Yew tree to make this possible.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Other mistake: When we see Sam driving, not once does he turn the steering wheel, not even a centimetre, and not when he has a heart attack and collides with a truck.

kh1616

The Tree of Death - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: There are two things going on at once - Mr Danvers and the girls are at the Danvers house while the archery lesson is going on - but suddenly they merge, with Mr Danvers and the girls at the archery lesson, which, time wise, isn't possible.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Plot hole: Dan, the policeman, finds a love letter written by Ben to Daisy, Dan's sister. The letter says "Meet me in the summer house tonight." When the girls arrived 2 to 3 days ago, Ben and his brother were arguing about the letter, which was written on blue paper. When Daisy is killed, Dan, ridiculously, accuses Ben - only on the blue letter as evidence, which we know was written days ago, and Daisy was killed in the afternoon, not at night as the letter says; plus, Dan says Daisy was struck with a heating tube, just like the ones where Ben works on the winery, but anyone could have picked it up. The evidence is stupid, but Ben is arrested, placed in handcuffs and taken away.

kh1616

The Gooseberry Bush - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Near the end, Laura is pouring the champagne, but while she's pouring it, Lydia and Penelope have their glasses filled to the top in front of them, but Laura hadn't finished pouring it yet.

kh1616

The Cup of Silence - S3-E1

Plot hole: When Laura, alone in the girls' room, hears the noises in the attic, she runs to get Rosemary. Problem is: Horace is the one who makes the noises and when Laura finds Rosemary, Horace is in the bar - not downstairs, making noises as he should be.

kh1616

The Tree of Death - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Malcolm is found dead with an arrow in his chest, the arrow is pointing down at an angle, which means it came from someone high up, but, later, we find out it came from someone of around the same height and standing on the ground, not high up on a ladder, or on a rooftop, which it should be, to get that angle.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: All the times the girls have visited Mr Allbright's rooms, they've had to press the intercom and get buzzed in. But on the last visit, Rosemary just walks in without waiting to be buzzed in.

kh1616

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Plot hole: The first man to be killed is a psychiatrist - "a very private man". So, if he was "very private", how did the "hip man" know if he did or did not have any psychotic patients who would want to kill him? He wouldn't.

kh1616

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Plot hole: In the garden, when Rosemary and Laura haven't done much clearing away yet, a girl loses her mobile in the garden. Instead of spending "hours" searching for it, why don't they just ring it? Or explain that the battery is dead and they can't ring it?

kh1616

Swords into Ploughshares - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Laura is handed a cup of tea that is only half-full. But when she puts the cup down, it's full.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Plot hole: While the girls are trying to work out who killed Jeremy, Rosemary says she thinks it's Julia - Julia owns the flat that Jeremy and Marcia live in - so Laura says "Why would she want Jeremy dead?" And Rosemary says "To sell the house for a greater amount of money." But that's wrong: When someone dies in a house, the house sells for less, not more - not many people want to live in a deceased estate.

kh1616

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Other mistake: As Laura walks into a darkened bedroom, she turns the light switch on. Not only does the room light come on, but also the bedside lamps, just by turning the switch on by the door.

kh1616

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning, Laura throws a rock through her window that has a floral arrangement in it. But when we look at the windows again, none are broken.
