Only Fools and Horses

To Hull and Back - S99-E4

Plot hole: Rodney follows Denzil all the way to Hull. However, it's established that Rodney is a fair distance behind Denzil several miles at least. How is it that Rodney knows exactly where Denzil has gone? He doesn't know Denzil's destination as he says to Del "he must have a load to pick up".

The Jolly Boys' Outing - S99-E8

Plot hole: After discovering that there was a rail strike and that they had missed the last bus home, the 27-member coach party all go their separate ways to try and find accommodation for the night. Boycie, Mike and Alan head off together while Trigger is left behind on his own to decide on which direction he wishes to walk in to try and find his own digs. Later on that evening, Boycie, Mike and Trigger seemingly all arrive at the nightclub together. How come? Especially after Trigger informs Del and Rodney that the place where he is staying is different to where Boycie and Mike are staying.

The Long Legs of the Law - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: At the very beginning of the episode, Leonard Pearce is waiting for the cue for his character to start looking for his teeth. He's standing in the living room, between his room and Del and Rodney's room. (00:00:25)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Not necessarily a mistake. If someone is looking for something they often try to think where it could be before they start searching.

Clearly not seen the episode. Leonard is stood not moving a muscle and then starts actively looking.
