Blake's 7 (1978)

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: The planet Terminal changes shape and color completely from its appearance in the previous episode. Where it was blue-green and cigar shaped before, it is now gray, striped like a yarn ball, and round. (00:07:00)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Avon apparently found a hair salon somewhere on the supposedly deserted planet Terminal. Between the time he and his crew were marooned in the previous episode and the events in this one, he's suddenly acquired a spiffy new blow-dry haircut. (00:03:10)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Voice from the Past - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In the final scenes on the planet, Blake's teleport bracelet appears and disappears repeatedly between shots. It reappears the final time just before he snatches it off and tosses it away to avoid being teleported up. (00:44:35)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Volcano - S3-E3

Factual error: Cally has some trouble counting in this one. She telepathically informs Avon that there are three troopers boarding Liberator - but there are four. (00:29:00 - 00:32:15)

Blake's 7 (1978)

The Harvest of Kairos - S3-E5

Factual error: Tarrant is some pilot. He miraculously gets the LEM into orbit without any rocket boosters or propulsion system of any kind - and with its landing gear still attached. (00:46:50)

Orac - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Cally puts her teleport bracelet on in the teleport room, it's on her right wrist. After she and Blake materialize on the planet's surface, the bracelet has mysteriously moved to her left wrist instead. (00:20:00 - 00:21:20)

Project Avalon - S1-E9

Horizon - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When the crew teleports up at the end, the shirtless Vila arrives in a completely different position relative to the others. On the surface, he's standing in a ring with the rest of them. When they materialize, he's hunched over and is now in the middle of their circle with the others around him. (00:42:25)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Volcano - S3-E3

Factual error: Cally's bracelet falls off while she's being dragged to the platform by the troopers, but she somehow manages to teleport down to the planet with them anyway. And the lost bracelet later miraculously appears on her wrist in time to bring her back up again. (00:34:45)

The Keeper - S2-E12

Visible crew/equipment: During the fight in the banquet hall, the spikes on Gola's mace bend several times, most obviously when he falls back onto the pillows. Must be tough bashing your enemies' skulls in with a foam rubber weapon. (00:44:05)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Breakdown - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: Avon is picking himself up from the computer room floor after a berserk Gan has attacked him. Blake rushes in to say, "Are you all right?" But he's been standing out there in the corridor, blocking a big bright patch of light throughout the scene, only to rush in on cue. (00:26:10)

Orac - S1-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Avon calls and wakes Vila up, ordering him to the teleport room, you can see Vila, who's supposed to be in his quarters at this point, hiding in the corridor waiting for his cue. (00:40:50)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Time Squad - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: Jenna moves down the corridor on her way to the hold with her Liberator gun in hand. The weapon lights up and flashes several times, even though she isn't firing it. (00:37:25)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Space Fall - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: At the end of "The Way Back," Blake, strapped in his prison ship seat, looks over his shoulder at the window behind him as the ship leaves Earth. This same scene is recapped at the beginning of "Spacefall," only now Blake is sitting one seat to the left of the window instead of directly in front of it. (00:49:00)

Space Fall - S1-E2

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: The high priest Vargas is wearing a nice new pair of decidedly 20th century basketball shoes under his robe. We even get a good close-up of them at one point. (00:49:15)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Girl Who Cried Wolf - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: About midway through, the new nurse is sitting on Monk's kitchen counter eating a sandwich. She puts the sandwich down on a plate as she hops off, the shot switches to another angle to include Monk as she walks away, and the sandwich has suddenly jumped off the plate and is now lying on the counter a few feet away. Neither of them had time to pick it up or move it.
