Other mistake: 14/07/11 - During Christian and Zainab's confrontation at Christian and Syed's flat, Christian is trying to gain Z's approval for his and Syed's adoption application. Throughout the entire 10 minute scene, the camera can be seen wobbling from side to side, as though all cast and crew are on the Titanic. The BBC even received complaints from viewers, stating that they had to turn the scene off because the camera angles were making them feel seasick.

Factual error: When Cindy wanted a hitman to kill Ian she looks in the yellow pages to find one. Surely the police and the makers of the yellow pages would have been alerted if a hitman agency wants to advertise itself in the yellow pages?

Question: Is outdoor Albert Square a set or a real life location? If its a set, how do they get the trains to run by so realistically and how do they get so many extras? If it's real, where is it?

Answer: Albert Square is a set in the BBC studios in Borehamwood, on the north side of London. The trains, to the best of my knowledge, are simply a bit of the old TV magic. As far as the extras go - it's not difficult to get extras in reasonable numbers through agencies.
