Bloopers and continuity errors
- A boom mic shadow is seen as Stokes opens the drawing room doors after playing chess with Julia.
- When Nicholas Blair leaves Collinwood after his talk with Stokes and Carolyn, as he walks out of the front doors, it seems that we can see part of another set instead of the view that we usually get.
