And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Character mistake: When Laura says that Alyssa was probably only sleeping with the doctor so he wouldn't be able to testify against her, the doctor says "She's my patient, nothing more." But she isn't his patient, her husband is.

Suggested correction: As Daniel's wife, it would make sense for Alicia to be registered as a patient with the same doctor.

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Plot hole: Laura says she knows it's Sam's car in the accident because she recognised the registration number, but the car was angled down too deeply; there's no way she could have seen it.

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Other mistake: When the girls see Dan in hospital, his IV is dripping, but in another shot we can see that the wheel on the IV that controls how fast the IV is dripping is turned off; it's right at the bottom, so it can't be dripping.

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the beginning, Alisa is supposed to be putting cream on her husband's left arm, but, while she has a great glob on her fingers, no cream ends up on the arm.

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The first time we see the land rover, Rosemary's hair is flat, with the window closed; then, suddenly, her hair is being blown around, as if the window is open to accommodate a camera.

And No Birds Sing - S1-E1

Other mistake: When we see Sam driving, not once does he turn the steering wheel, not even a centimetre, and not when he has a heart attack and collides with a truck.

Trivia: Except for the first episode, "And No Birds Sing", where Laura drinks a glass of wine in 2 gulps, she never takes a sip of her drinks - wine, apple juice, nothing - except for tea. She pretends to drink, but doesn't succeed.

Three Legs Good - S3-E5

Question: When you are wallpapering, what is it that you brush on the paper after it is on the wall? Helena brushes something that looks like glue on the new wallpaper.

kh1616

Chosen answer: As far as hanging new wallpaper, there is no need to brush on any additional product once it has been pasted to the wall. It appears Helena may be doing an extra decorative step by applying a liquid glaze over the wallpaper to give it a more distinctive look, perhaps creating a sheen effect on the surface. Glaze can also be tinted to give a muted colored tone. It could also be a protective sealant. However, to remove old wallpaper, a product is brushed on that dissolves the old paste so the paper can be easily scraped off.
