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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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."

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
