Rosemary & Thyme

In a Monastery Garden - S3-E2

Other mistake: When the old well needs filling in, for safety reasons, Ryan is breaking up bricks. If you are filling up a well, first, you'd need lots of bricks and stones, heaps more than Ryan's small pile, and, two, why does Ryan have to break up the bricks? They're going into the well - it doesn't matter if they are big or small.

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Other mistake: The girls are staying with Julia whose house starts on the first floor, so she has no direct access to the gardens, but when Laura comes back to Julia's place, she enters via the gardens.

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.

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Other mistake: When Laura is directing the planting of a very large palm tree, she says something in Spanish and points to her left; but the man installing the palm moves it to the right - the exact opposite - but suddenly it's perfect.

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.

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Other mistake: When Rosemary comes back from seeing her old college professor, she comes in from the garden, but Julia's place - this is where Rosemary and Laura are staying - is on the first floor; there's no access to her place from the garden. Rosemary should have gone to the front door, on the street.

Racquet Espanol - S3-E7

Other mistake: When Rosemary is bitten by a spider, Laura says how pretty it was, with red and black stripes on its abdomen. Problem is: we don't get to see its abdomen - Rosemary wipes it away with her hand - and all we saw was black, no red in sight.

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.

The Tree of Death - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Malcolm is found dead with an arrow in his chest, the arrow is pointing down at an angle, which means it came from someone high up, but, later, we find out it came from someone of around the same height and standing on the ground, not high up on a ladder, or on a rooftop, which it should be, to get that angle.

Orpheus in the Undergrowth - S2-E2

Plot hole: When Jeremy stopped to drink his water, which turned out to be vodka and which killed him via a heart attack, why did he hide himself away, surrounded by plants and only found by his mobile ringing? And why would he put the lid back on the bottle in the throes of a heart attack?

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.

Swords into Ploughshares - S2-E7

Question: When the girls and Rosemary's mother go to the mortuary to see who was impersonating Rosemary, Rosemary's mother says just before they see the body, "It's just a waste of time me going home, really." What does she mean?

kh1616

Chosen answer: Maybe she thinks she's so old that she'll be back in the mortuary soon, so why go home?
