I don't know if this belongs here, but the fighting scene in the water in "You have just been murdered" - isn't there an identic one in another episode? I can't remember the episode but I'm sure that there is another fighting scene with Emma in the river...I think she even wears the same clothes...

No don't think so - the nearest thing close to it I can think of is the high dive sequence in The Bird Who Knew Too Much.

The newly restored print of Pandora has a few boom mics lurking at the top of the picture

Presumably they would have originally been in the intended overscan area, in the days before zoomed-out remasters!

The BBC's restoration team seem to erase boom mics that are in shot (even though they're "authentic") to preserve the "magic", but they have a bigger budget...

That's interesting, but I'm more concerned with the episodes featuring the target opening, with the correct accompanying audio that includes the sound of a bullet, which creates the hole in Steed's bowler hat. The version with the incorrect audio track is annoying. I'm hoping that version will not be in the new set.

The Sensei said it means "foolish one", not idiot.

Obaka generally means a fool. Less of an insult than "idiot."

Obaki (Obake) translates as demon or monster. There is a Japanese card game called "Obake Karuta" or monster cards.

"The living dead" : in the execution scene you can see a camera for a second on the right site.

"The hour that never was"
When Steed/Patrick Macnee is running over the runway of the airbase to find Mrs Peel, he is laughing.

There is also that classic one where Steed walks into a building in a light grey suit and walks out in a dark blue one Laughing Can't remember the episode.



That happens in "Never, Never Say Die" when Steed walks into Dr. Penrose's building and then out later. I believe the color change was brown to blue or blue to brown suit.

The Positive Negative Man

When Steed is telling Mrs Peel about his "experience" with the blue van, you can see a person looking to Steed and Peel from the buildings in the backgrounds and then he/she disappears.

Spotting a stunt double is hardly a blooper. A blooper is a genuine mistake - contunuity error, a fluffed line or calling a character by the wrong name. You're bound to spot a double if you watch for it - especially in the age of digital freeze frame.

One of the better messed up lines happened in Six Hands Across A Table where Guy Doleman's character tells Cathy Gale that he loves her, but he actually says "I love you Ros", which was the character name of his sister, of course Honor Blackman carried on stoically.

Not the best of starts to a romance I would have thought. Laughing
They both carried on very well!

Visibility of the boom mic in this case would be we're getting a more picture. The technical details are beyond me , but basically the scope of the frame is bigger.

I don't know what 'snafu' means. But it's something that wouldn't have been detected previously so not a blooper.
