Factual error: The Deputy Chief Constable wears the rank insignia of the lower rank of Assistant Chief Constable. She also wears her medal ribbons in the wrong order: Diamond Jubilee Medal, Golden Jubilee Medal and Police Long Service and Good Conduct Medal. The Golden Jubilee Medal should actually be worn first.Necrothesp
Continuity mistake: Elisabeth Shue is talking to Homelander by her car. As she gets her baby out of the car, she says "can we please just talk later" and has a muslin hanging over her right shoulder, turns around, and from the reverse angle the muslin is bundled up in front of her, not over her shoulder at all. Then the angle changes again and it's back where it was before.Jon Sandys
Factual error: Aziraphale cites the only prophecy from Agnes Nutter that he could find as one for 1972, "do not buy Betamax" (a reference to the home video format war). Betamax was only launched in 1975 starting in Japan, so this advice wouldn't be of any use until 1976. (And these prophecies were completely, even ludicrously accurate, so that excludes any explanation that she was simply a few years off, because she was never wrong). (00:19:10)Spiny Norman
New this month Continuity mistake: When the detective goes to retrieve the water bottle that Zach discards into the recycle bin, he picks it up with a napkin by the top. In the next shot, he is placing the bottle in a plastic bag top first, holding the bottle with the napkin by the bottom. (00:42:00)Paco386
New this month Continuity mistake: As Ricky Gervais walks by the school where his nephew is, a "chubby little ginger" shouts "pedo" at him. He stops and holds one of the bars of the railing, third from the pillar. In the close-up, you can count more bars than that, showing he is in a different position altogether. (00:07:00)Sammo
Deliberate mistake: In the restaurant after their daughter finishes talking to Niko, Erik turns the tablet device around and sets it on the table to talk to Niko. From his perspective, he is looking down at the screen. But in the other shots from Niko's perspective, where he is a life sized hologram, his figure is shown looking up and meeting her eyes. But from her perspective it should look like he's looking down at the table.Quantom X
New this month Continuity mistake: When Rian and Mira are on the Spy glass, he understands she just invited him to Dreamfast. When she answers "Yes! I mean...if you wanted to?" his hair is suddenly all the way behind the sword's handle, when it wasn't in the shot before. (00:09:45)Sammo
Character mistake: At the police station when Damien Asante is reading the information on the computer about the hit and run, he says "On February 25, 2015 Christy Markus and her son were struck by a car. The driver kept going." If you look at the computer screen, the date of incident says February 25, 2018. (00:30:00)Tricia Webster
Other mistake: A Mexican pilot based in Ensenada is interviewed. He owns a 1983 Cessna 172 aircraft. When they show it in the air, it is a 2005 Cessna 182 based in San Antonio per the FAA database. A US registry aircraft would not be based in Mexico, owned by a Mexican pilot. (00:11:20)toroscan
Continuity mistake: A group of people are standing before a door with full glass inserts. It has a thought processor for access. Once the group defeats the processor, they open the doors. But the doors are now solid wood, not with a glass insert. (00:29:20)toroscan
