Anachronisms 

At the end of the show Holmes and Watson are watching a Mets-Reds baseball game on TV. This would be impossible since this story takes place sometime during the winter, as everyone is wearing heavy winter clothes and all of the trees are bare.

Continuity 

In the opening sequence there is a wheel of revolvers. Initially, there are four identical Taurus model 689, then right before the pistol fires that pistol becomes a Smith and Wesson model 681.

When Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson approach the initial crime scene, Sherlock's scarf, gray on one side and red on the other, had the gray side out and the red side against his skin. When we see them inside the brownstone, the scarf is showing only the red sided pattern.

Errors in geography 

Sherlock makes a reference to Watson receiving a ticket at a cemetery at the corner of 86th and 3rd. None of the boroughs of NYC have a cemetery at such an address.

Factual errors 

When Sherlock and Watson get off the train, Watson's iPhone receives a call from Mom & Dad and clearly we see the options for "Answer" and "Decline", which would happen only if the iPhone was not screen locked, but after Watson selects "Decline", we hear the distinctive "keypad lock sound" of the iPhone, which would never happen unless the iPhone was screen-locked when the call is received.
