Ultraworld - S3-E10

Plot hole: When Ultraworld first shows up on the Liberator's screens, all scans show it isn't there. Avon explains it can't be detected because it is an artificial planet using alien technology which blocks all electromagnetic radiation from escaping. But the crew are looking at it on their screen - the ordinary visible light we use to see things is part of the electromagnetic spectrum too.

Ultraworld - S3-E10

Factual error: The Ultra may be expert collectors of knowledge, but they have their facts wrong about Avon, who tried to steal 5 million credits from the Federation banking system. The Ultra think it was 500 million. (00:10:05)

Ultraworld - S3-E10

Other mistake: Avon tells Vila to open the starboard airlock, but the exterior shots of the Liberator show there is nothing attached to the starboard side of the ship.

Ultraworld - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Dayna & Tarrant are "bonding" they are not wearing their gun belts. Yet the shot of them running down a corridor immediately after escaping shows Dayna has hers on. In the next scene, it's gone again. Later Avon & Tarrant recover three gun belts from the control room.

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.
