Episode Two - S2-E2

Corrected entry: When Gavin, Mick and Bryn are at Burger King looking for Smithy, Bryn tries to explain the problem. The others don't understand what he's trying to say so Mick says "leave it to Smithy", when he's supposed to refer to Gavin.

Correction: He means let Smithy tell his own family and not anyone else tell them.

Episode Four - S2-E4

Corrected entry: When the families assemble to watch Mick's appearance on TV, it's dark outside. Yet the supposedly live report that frames Mick's appearance takes place in daylight.

Correction: The news report wasn't live. Mick found the body on the way to work in the morning and it aired on the news that night. That's why it's day in the interview but night when it airs.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: When Dawn and Pete are arguing in the pub in series 1 she says he's a chartered surveyor. In a later episode Smithy is discussing how he never knew Pete was a butcher.

Correction: This is the joke - Pete and Dawn are meeting Seth for a proposed threesome, and having been seen at the restaurant and not having got their stories straight when asked where they met him, Dawn says "at the butchers" and Pete says "at work". Hence the comment to Pete "I didn't know you were a butcher".

Episode Two - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Nessa goes home to Pam's house along with Stacey and Gwen, and in that scene you can see the tattoo on her arm of the Welsh dragon. If you focus enough you can see the dragon only has 3 legs, whereas the Welsh dragon has 4 legs, as does her tattoo usually. Both writer Ruth Jones and director Christine Gernon confirmed this on an outtakes special.
