Suggested correction: Not a mistake. The show takes place over more than a year in the prison. People change their hairstyle and length during that time. Just because episodes are next to each other does not mean they happen within a very short period of time.

While the mistake is vague and should include a specific example or two, the mistake is saying that within an episode the hair changes, not that the hair changes between episodes.

Plot hole: Fletcher and Warren steal what they think is the History paper so Godber can study it before he sits the exam. They are adamant that he has a very short time to go through it as they have to put it back before anyone misses it. After Godber refuses to cheat by reading it Fletcher berates him, throws the paper on the cell floor and storms out. What happened to replacing the stolen exam paper?

Trivia: Fletch has a teenage son by the name of Raymond who was never actually featured in the show. He did turn up in the follow-up, "Going Straight", and was played by Nicholas Lyndhurst, aka Rodney Trotter from Only Fools and Horses.
