Occurrence Reports - S5-E6

Factual error: Everyone celebrates the beginning of the new century at midnight on 31 December 1899. In fact, the beginning of the 20th century was celebrated (correctly) at midnight on 31 December 1900. In those days people still knew that a decade (and a century) begins with a year 1, not a year 0.

Mistakes

When reading out the list of the day's crimes, Artherton mentions two "teenaged" girls. Use of this term is not recorded in America until the 1920s and in Britain until the late 1940s. The series is set in 1889 and the speech used by the characters is consistently very much the speech of the time - it has not been updated for modern understanding.
