Wimbledon

Revealing mistake: In the changing room before the Final, Peter leans against a dark wooden pillar several times. It moves on each occasion.

Revealing mistake: Half of the crowds on centre court are made up of faceless dummies with clothes on.

Revealing mistake: Before Peter Colt plays his first round match there is an aerial shot panning across the Wimbledon complex with the commentator declaring, "this is the first day of Wimbledon." However, the aerial shot shows most of the courts are badly worn, as they would be at the end of the tournament. On the first day they, are always lush and green. The shot was taken from archive footage showing the end of a Wimbledon Championship.

Factual error: Peter and Lizzie play their semi-finals on the same day, but the men's semis are the day after the women's at Wimbledon (unless there has been significant rain, which there wasn't).
