Finding Neverland

Factual error: In the cricket match, a number of things happen that are highly questionable. When the player is bowled, the bowler appeals, something that is only done if the umpire's opinion is required, which in this case it isn't. Even after the appeal, the umpire shakes his head, which in cricket, indicates that the batsman is not out. Only a raised finger or perhaps a nod would be out. To the uninitiated, the equivalent in baseball would be for the umpire to call "ball" and have the batsman walk off the ground as though he had struck out, instead of taking first base. (00:33:10)

Chosen answer: ACD was a close friend of JMB and they don't make a big deal out of identifying him. One scene he is in is the party after the first play opening. He is also the one who suggests to JMB that his interest in the boys might be a source of gossip.
