Blake's 7

Power - S4-E2

Deliberate mistake: Because Paul Darrow had turned an ankle while shooting the fight scene with Gunsar, the uninjured Avon is inexplicably limping throughout most of the fight. (00:14:00)

Orac - S1-E13

Deliberate mistake: Because Stephen Greif tore an Achilles tendon playing squash, a stand-in had to complete his scene with Servalan in Ensor's underground complex. The result was a very odd segment in which we hear Travis' voice (pre-recorded by Greif) answering Servalan's lines, but never see him - except for an awkward shot of shuffling, black-booted feet that are all-too-obviously not Greif's.

Redemption - S2-E1

Deliberate mistake: In the escape scene near the end, an explosive charge that went off too soon knocked Paul Darrow over - and briefly out of the shot. Because he was able to get back up and keep running, the accident was left in, though he's said it was fortunate there was no microphone on him at the time, as he uttered a few words that were "definitely not rated PG." (00:42:30)

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.
