In the new masters of The Murder Market you can see the technicians hands waiting to catch Diana Rigg when she is hanging on half way up the wall in the marriage bureau office during her fight with Suzanne Lloyd.

Here's screen grab of a blooper someone sent to Roobarb's from the new discs. Ignoring the stunning new picture quality for a sec, can you see Diana Rigg's shadow on the backdrop?

If we are talking about bloopers, continuity and such with shows how about:

1. In "Never, Never Say Die" we have Steed entering the MOD unit in one suit color and leaving in another suit (brown to blue or blue to brown, can't recall).

2. Steed's apartment in the later Peel Seasons. As we know, Steed's apartment was in the MIDDLE of his flat building and yet we have a door from his kitchen apparently to the outside. But, it can't be to the outside, since his flat in in the middle, so it has to be into a hallway, I imagine. But, that's odd, too, having a door from a hallway into one's kitchen...

Oi, that's my screengrab.Very Happy Wink

It's funny that scene as all the actors shadows are very obvious when they're moving.

I watched Room Without a View last night and did a double take at one moment.

When Steed goes to visit Chessman as they both walk towards the table for dinner, the camera is tracking backwards. At the bottom of the frame you can see someone disappearing out of shot as they moved the table on to the set for Steed to sit down at (if the table was there the whole time then the camera move wouldn't have worked).

With the increased screen area showing on the new DVD's, the boom mike has popped into shot a few times.

Darren, was that your screen grab?? I'd have given you proper credit had I realised. Embarassed

It's a goody though - and it's great to have the opportunity of showing an example rather than to just describe it.

Yes but that was probably not visible on original broadcast, due to the overscan area and the shape of TV screens. The new DVDs have a lot of material at the edges which was not meant to be shown, just like film series when seen on the big screen. The idea of overscan isn't given much respect these days. Hance much complaining on forums about boom mikes in shot, edges of sets and tech crew ladders at the edge of shot, etc when they actually aren't when seen on a proper screen shown at the proper zoom amount. You're not watching them how they should be watched, how they were framed by the director for broadcast. He didn't intend every bit of the filmed image to be seen - he shot more of it, to allow for overscan.

Sounds like another overscan issue!

Watching the new Avengers DVD trailer I am reminded of a blooper.

When Steed asks Mrs Peel what she's doing, she replies "Chasing a Unidentified Object. That's the venicular isn't it?" It's actually an 'Unidentified Flying Object'. (From Venus With Love of course)

Interesting, Dandy. The American Air Force created the term UFO in 1952, so one might assume Emma should have known the correct usage, but that's perhaps being a bit hard on her. It's unrealistic to suppose Emma knew everything about everything. While a very brilliant woman, as we know quite good at bridge and physics/chemistry, she seems extraordinarily deficient in astronomical science, what with the idea there is vegetation on the moon (as we all know there's only cheese on the moon, proven by Wallace and Grommit), and not knowing the proper UFO term. Perhaps Steed wound up getting her a helpful telescope for her birthday after this case!

Which is fair enough, but this one seems to be travelling along a road...

Just caught this one in 'Death At Bargain Prices'. Julie in the food market is telling Steed about Professor Poppel and mentions he disappeared a few months ago. In the very next scene, Steed is at Emma's flat and asks if she's ever heard of Professor Poppel. She replies to the affirmative and adds, "Didn't he disappear a few weeks ago.

Also, in 'Return Of The Cybernauts', while Steed is waiting in the car outside Beresfords, the close ups show him without his bowler. The far shots show him with, or rather, the stunt double.

Just to point out another mistake in one of the scenes let's go back to The Thirteenth Hole, which I've just watched today. Mind you I've watched this episode a few times before but never noticed till now that at the very last scene (before the closing tag) where the baddie is running away from Steed and Emma through the golf course, we see Steed positioning to swing at the golf balls aimed to knock out the baddie but low and behold when the camera is on the shot of the golfers legs it isn't Pat's legs we see but someone elses. How we know this is that Pat is wearing his socks over his trousers and the "mystery legs" isn't. Which I knew how to capture the scene so I can post it here. Rolling Eyes

Just watched The Undertakers. Wierd. Very wierld but Pat gave a humorous performance and I always like that. What caught me off guard was his last scene. I know this has probably been brought up before here but it's the strangest behavior I've seen coming out of Steed/Pat. He was a bit uncomprehensible and the giggling fit! He was also sweating pints which kinda worried me(feeling sick?). Does anyone know the story behind this odd blooper?

He was thinking of those "very big girls!"

Just watched The Cybernauts on the new dvd. The Karate Sensei calls Emma 'Obaki', saying it means idiot in Japanese. 'Obaka' is idiot. 'Obaki' is ghost!
