Forever Knight picture

Forward into the Past - S2-E4

Factual error: Nick tells fellow vampire Aristotle, "You still owe me for that time at the Battle of Hastings." Nick was brought across in 1228, or so the intro told us every week. The Battle of Hastings, as any British school kid knows, was fought in 1066, over 100 years before Nick's mortal birth. (00:29:30)

Eyewitness - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When the immortal who's trying to kill Tessa snipes at her in Duncan's car, his shot shatters the passenger-side window. When Duncan tails Tessa and her police escort to the safehouse, the passenger-side window is intact. (00:30:05 - 00:35:50)

Day of the Samurai - S1-E55

Factual error: Batman is in Japan and tracks down Kyodai Ken by using Caller ID, which returns a seven-digit "555" number. Telephone numbers in Japan have 8 digits.

Mistaken Identity (2) - S99-E7

Revealing mistake: Near the end when Frost calls Pam to warn her about Meadows, she walks in to the hall and picks up the cordless phone. After she's looked out of the window and seen the killer staring at her, she 'does a Kim Bauer' and holds the phone upside down while she continues speaking with Frost. (02:09:00 - 02:10:20)

Are You Afraid of the Dark? picture

The Tale of the Manaha - S5-E7

Character mistake: Near the beginning as the leader is about to set off with the boys, he says, "About face!" and turns to the left, and the boys follow suit. But "About face" means to turn 180°. He should have said "Left face" to get them to turn 90° to the left. (00:04:25)

Maigret picture

The Patience of Maigret - S1-E1

Other mistake: A newspaper headline reads "MAIGRET tient t'il enfin le tueur?" This makes no sense in French. It should read "MAIGRET tient-il enfin le tueur?" ("Does Maigret have the killer at last?"). (00:27:55)
