Blake's 7

Orbit - S4-E11

Character mistake: Whilst brutalising Pinder, Egrorian asks if he can feel his humerus grinding against his radius, but the bones in the forearm are the radius & ulna. The humerus is the single bone from the shoulder to the elbow.

Gold - S4-E10

Character mistake: The first time they go into the hold, Avon calls Keeler "Kilo"

Power - S4-E2

Character mistake: Gunsar refers to his predecessor as Maverick, but on the recording Nina calls him Marvick.

Headhunter - S4-E6

Character mistake: Tarrant says they can't land the ship without Slave. Yet in 4-1 "Rescue" he questions the competency of the automatic systems and offers to land the ship himself.

Rescue - S4-E1

Character mistake: When discussing Ensor, Avon says he'd spent 20 years of his life in hiding. Yet in 1-13 "Orac" Blake said he hadn't been seen for 40 years.

Countdown - S2-E9

Character mistake: Much drama ensues from which wire to cut; ("Right. NO, Left!"). However, the wires are coloured (L-R from our viewpoint: blue, red, green). There is no need for this confusion.

Time Squad - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During Blake's first encounter with Cally, the smudges on the front of his tunic (including a big chalky footprint left by her boot) disappear, reappear and rearrange themselves several times between shots. (00:31:20)

Blake - S4-E13

Trivia: It's not every day you can shoot your wife in front of millions of witnesses and get away with it. Klyn, the woman behind the console who sounds the alarm before Avon shoots her, was played by Paul Darrow's real-life wife, Janet Lees Price.
