Murder, She Wrote picture

Sing a Song of Murder - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When the first scene at Emma's hideaway was shown, obviously the two characters Emma and Jessica were filmed seperately on the couch and then the film was put together (as both are played by Angela Lansbury). However Jessica did a lot of moving while she was talking, so Emma was looking straight across at where she had been, despite her bending down while she talked.

The Blue Carbuncle - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When the thief places the blue carbuncle in the goose's throat, it's obvious he actually doesn't put the gem in the bird's mouth. He pretends to, but then drops the gem into his other hand. This is all visible in the shot.
