The Man Who Blew Away - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: If you look at the corner cabinet in the Meldrew's kitchen near to the door that leads into the living room, you will notice that in some shots there is an ornamental chicken and in other shots it changes to a different blue coloured ornament.

Only a Story - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode Margaret enters the living room and discovers that their new wallpaper has come down. In the shot from the kitchen, the wallpaper hanging down is not visible, but in the next shot there is a piece hanging down which should have been visible in the previous shot. (00:01:20)

Only a Story - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Margaret is about to confront Victor with the truth about his reflexology, in the first shot that pans over to Margaret on the very left of the screen, a hand appears and pulls the door back. It can't be Jean as we see her leaving the room to go upstairs a few shots earlier.

Trivia: The Christmas Special that aired in 1995, was initially intended as the series' finale, and would have seen Victor being killed while saving Margaret who was being attacked by a madman. The 1997 special was then intended to end the series with Margaret dying from a heart attack brought on from the strain of Victor's misadventures, but on both occasions the production crew got cold feet. It wasn't until the final series in 2000 that the team, in David Renwick's words, "plucked up the courage to kill Victor."
