Private Lives - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Neville is telling Dennis he should find a woman, Dennis is getting dressed up in his suit to meet Dagmar. After Neville has finished talking, Dennis leaves the hut without a suitcase. But when he arrives at the hotel with Dagmar he is seen putting his case on the bed(Dagmar has one as well). It is clear that he has come straight from the hut, as he is telling Dagmar what Neville had told him before he left.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In series 1 episode 10 (Last Rites) when Oz asks Bomber if he is interested in his porn deal, just before Bomber gets his foot broken, he tells Oz he has five kids. In series 3 episode 5, Bomber tells Lainie (the native American girl) when she asks if he has any family, that he has four children. Is not likely that any of the kids have died as he has just told her his wife had died and would probably have mentioned the loss of a child as well.

Show generally

Plot hole: In the first series, Bomber mentions 'City's my team', referring to Bristol City, and dislikes the other Bristol based football club (Rovers). If this is the case, why is he wearing the distictive blue-and-white quartered shirt of Bristol Rovers in series 4? I know that people change allegiances, but it's very unlikely.

When the Boat Goes Out - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: During the first scene on the site, when the camera angle changes so does the weather, from overcast to bright sunshine; also at the same time the background noise from the building site changes as well.

A Home from Home - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Oz and Moxey are in the supermarket loading the trolley up with beer, the camera angle changes to a close-up on Moxey then when it returns to Oz, more beer has been removed from the shelves. You can't hear any cans being moved when the camera is on Moxey and there is the same amount of beer in the trolley.

Continuity mistake: When Ally Fraser is climbing from one yacht to the other, you can see the flower that he is wearing on his suit fall off, but when he is on the yacht that Barry and Hazel's wedding is taking place on his flower has returned.

Season 1 generally

Trivia: Jimmy Nail's girlfriend, Miriam, (now his wife) heard about the auditions for Auf Wiedersehen Pet, and suggested that he try out to be an extra. (Nail had already had a brief appearance as an extra in the 1971 movie "Get Carter"). At the time (1982), Jimmy was in a band called The Crabs and he used to perform in a dress and hobnailed boots. Nail reportedly turned up late for the auditions, had to double park his car, and was very rude to the casting director holding the auditions. Little did he know then that his "bluntness" was exactly what the casting director was looking for...
