Did You Know?


When Sophie puts the new address sticker on the shipping slip, the date is clearly 2008. Yet this went to air in 2010. The episode is supposed to be 5 years previous so it should have read 2005. See more »


Sophie Devereaux: It was on route, that's like stealing my mail.
Parker: Well is stealing mail a crime?

Deteriorating from before this episode
9 September 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The third series may have been rushed compared with the first two. The first thing I notice is that the background music is of less quality.

In the the earlier series, we had cool up-to-date club jazz in the background. This series drops down to more standard and less well- conceived stuff in the background.

In this particular episode, the identity conceived by Sophie, "The Duchess of Barrington-Highsworth" is way too sloppy an error for someone who is supposed to be a top grifter.

I thought everyone knew that a Duchess is a very high rank - the highest below monarch if not indeed a monarch. The Queen of England is unusually referred to as the Duke of Lancaster instead of Duchess. But the principle is that a Duke or Duchess is the ruler of a province at the least. There is actually a Viscountess Barrington Highworth - note the lack of "of" at this level. At the viscount level we can indeed expect the name to relate to an estate rather than anything as massive as a province. Note also the fact that it's Highworth, not Highsworth. Point is, a grifter that sloppy would get caught more often than not!

And then we hear that the security system, a cutting-edge "Tanuki", in the museum is run by a mainframe. I'm not sure if even when mainframes were the latest technology, back in the 50's and 60's, they would have been capable of running a security system. Mainframes are distinguished by having a separate processor for peripheral devices using synchronous I/O. Security systems have to service asynchronous interrupts.

Surely these people can afford a few bucks to consultants to avoid making such mistakes? Or do they think they already know everything and don't need to do any research.
