Blake's 7

Breakdown - S1-E10

Factual error: Zen refers to the objects encountered at the beginning of the episode as "meteorites". In space, these objects are known as meteoroids. When they enter the Earth's atmosphere they are called meteors, and when they hit the surface of the earth they are called meteorites.

Duel - S1-E8

Factual error: Travis fails Astronomy 101 with the line, "Blake - the other patrols have pushed him into this galaxy." That should be star system, not galaxy. B7's ships weren't capable of intergalactic travel. Not just a character mistake, either. Travis is a trained Space Commander, and should definitely know the very big difference between a solar system and a galaxy, even if the scriptwriters - and people who keep miscorrecting this error - do not.

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.
