BBC Series "Spooks" This Week In UK

Thu Nov 22, 2007 9:54 am

Did anyone else notice the hopeless continuity errors with the plane that was being used in this weeks episode of Spooks on the BBC.

I think that a 737 classic took off, morphed into a 737NG whilst flying and then when it landed they disembarked past something much bigger.........:D

Also they had a A32X in flight, DC-9 on approach and then the belly of a B747 at landing.

Is it just me but I lost the plot after all that.

I think most of the viewers probably wouldn't have had a clue, especially as it was such a bloody good episode anyway!!!

Yes forgot about the DC9 Big grin

It was a good episode apart from them losing the plot near the end and becoming unprofessional!

Ha! I saw that plane as a 747, 737-200, 737-300, 737NG, A320, DC-9, 757 and finally 747 again.
They were taking the pi** out of the audience.

I wonder if it was the Casino Royale 747 that they used that lives permanently at the airbase used by BBC2's Top Gear?

... they showed a landing shot from the underside of a 747, for no particular reason, as far as I could tell...

Pity, a great series up until this episode, but their lack of attention to detail spoilt it for me I'm afraid. Either they were just very sloppy, or more likely had to do it as cheaply as possible and so just scanned their VT archive for as much (albeit completely unrelated) footage as they could find.

it most probably was. When they had landed you could see the registration of the aircraft, and it was the same reg as the Casino Royale aircraft, although this is a generic reg used for films, and has been used on more than one aircraft in the past.

I also love the fact that they struggled to get in touch with the aircraft to tell them to divert - why didnt they just phone up ATC! Also, "turn on your blootooth, and text 757" to set the bomb off.... Big grin
