How about in The Town Of No Return, when Smallwood (Patrick 'Mother' Newell) was being chased across the sand dunes at night by the fake blacksmith and his bloodhounds....One minute it is Newell with his swaiths of black hair, next it is a blond/grey haired stand in blatantly running towards the camera, looking like a completely different person!

I love it! Laughing

I believe that was the original actor from the Shepherd version of Town of No Return, Jill Manson was played by a different actress in the original as well, I suppose as they weren't returning to Norfolk to film any location footage for the reshoot they just left it in and hoped no-one would notice!

More of a Nitpick than a blooper :

Watching Requiem late last night I noticed that during Steed and Miranda's chess game (36mins in) there are three white pieces off the board every time the camera looks towards Steed but only two when looking towards Miranda. I'll offer it to http://theavengers.alexia.us ! (the website seems to be dormant now by the way, as my email was not received).

In my father's Death of a Great Dane, the shop assistant keeps dropping the cracker boxes on Steed's head, unable to place them in the overfilled storage shelves. Macnee copes admirably.

You mean Mandrake. Smile

I love that moment as they cope so well, and they're so playful anyway that it doesn't matter.

Haven't done anything in a while. I need to update that again. I had a bunch of submissions that got lost in a computer crash, unfortunately.

This might have been posted previously and if it was, apologies for repetition. I suppose it falls into the category of gaffes...in Surfeit Of H2O, when Pat is pounding/kicking on the door to the "storm room", one can see the entire faux brick wall shake with each of Pat's strikes on the door.

Yes, sorry, it was in Mandrake where even the shop counter is in constant danger of collapsing.

Can anyone tell me what episode Steed makes a large radio on a table fall over by mistake?

Thingamujig seems to contain quite a few jarring errors. But I'm posting this without going back to watch it. So bear with me. I'm just not up for that episode at the moment!

When Tara arrives at Steed's flat, it's confirmed it's morning and the Vicar has had to travel through the night to reach Steed. And yet, when Tara drives from her flat to the church, it takes her just a matter of minutes to get there! Despite being first thing in the morning, Tara goes home and changes into a new outfit. Was she bored with the original so quickly? Having changed, she then wears the same dress for what appears to be several days! Why does Tara do all her cake icing in the living room? Exactly where is her kitchen? (Or for that matter, where is her toilet and bathroom?) Her icing skills are amazingly fast. She can ice a phone number in record speed!

Maybe when I next get around to watching this episode again, I'll spot a few more. The issue of Tara's changes of clothes create enormous continuity goofs. In Bizarre (or as I now prefer it: Next Stop, Paradise!) she again changes costume for no reason early in the story, but then sleeps outside for two nights in the same costume! Clearly she didn't feel the urge to change that time, although I know for sure that I would!

I always wonder where Tara's kitchen is, too (her bathroom, it's been established, is attached to her bedroom somehow, and is through that door off to the left). The costume changing, alas, is something that pops up in numerous episodes. Sometimes it's a pretty gratuitous swap for the sole purpose of letting the Avengers girl model another outfit (which I have no problem with. Hey, I watch for the clothes, too! Wink ). Alas, sometimes they beat said outfit to death, and you do start to wonder if Emma/Tara/et al. wouldn't like to freshen up at some point. And if there's a shower in the vicinity. Laughing

I think her kitchen must be through the purple door next to her bedroom door, although we hardly ever see it, I think in The Curious Case Of The Countless Clues Steed wheels Tara out of the door with a kettle on her lap, must assume the kitchens pretty pokey if they can't even make a cuppa in there!

That's the door that leads to her bedroom and bathroom, too! It must be getting crowded back there. Wink

No there are two doors, there's the ornate white door that is her bedroom door, then to the left besides that god awful fish painting there is a purple door which to be fair I didn't even notice for at least two years after first watching them, either way, must be titchy or her bedroom and kitchen must run into the flat next door!

Thanks, I've just watched it (in Act Two). A good ad-lib as usual!

I haven't watched a Tara in years, but I've never noticed the second door! Shocked Must watch out for that next time...
