Miami Twice (2) - S99-E11

Audio problem: Del and Rodney are on the plane to Miami. Rodney tells Del to take the headphones off. Del's mouth says 'what, these?', but it is overdubbed with a laugh.

Fatal Extraction - S99-E13

Audio problem: In one of the scenes where you see Del trying to sell some ski wear at the market, his lips are obviously saying something totally different to what he actually says. They have dubbed over the original soundtrack.

The Class of '62 - S7-E4

Audio problem: When Del invites all his mates round to his flat after the reunion, they start to go through a number of photos. When Del shows them the photo of the school football team, Trigger says, "There's that Italian kid, good player, what was his name?" But if you look closely, Trigger's voice has been dubbed over. Instead, he says, "There's that Italian Prat."

Tea for Three - S5-E4

Audio problem: At the beginning of the episode, the pianist and drummer are not playing in line with the sound track.

A Losing Streak - S2-E3

Audio problem: When Del is in the flat telling Grandad about him losing to Boycie in the pub, he says "only genuine weight watcher in London" however he doesn't say the word "genuine" but "only provo weightwatcher" which was obviously a topical gag at the time.

Friday the 14th - S3-E3

Audio problem: When Del, Rodney and Grandad are in the cottage, Del is scared to open the door. Rodney says "Well go on then Del, there's nothing to be frightened of now." There is a shot from behind Rodney when he begins to say this. Look closely at Rodney's mouth when he starts to say this; his lips aren't moving.

Strained Relations - S4-E2

Audio problem: When Rodney chucks the hat into the grave, the noise it makes is of something a lot heavier. (00:04:35)

Strained Relations - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: When everyone's back at the flat, as Del Boy is looking straight down the hallway to his and Rodney's bedroom, someone comes up to him and he turns around. When it goes from his close-up to the wide shot of everyone else the shadow of the camera reversing backwards is visible for a few seconds.
