Season 5 Trivia

  • Episode 15 - The comment by the commentator during the no-man's land soccer match, They think it's all over. It is now! Is a nod to the comment made by Kenneth Wolstenholme at the end of the 1966 Cup final when England beat Germay 4 goals to 2 after extra time.
  • Episode 11 - Goof (anachronisms): During the convict settlement of Australia sketch, the map showing the state of New South Wales is wrong for the period. The borders of N.S.W. weren't defined until the mid 1800s. The border with South Australia was defined in 1836, Victoria 1851 and Queensland in 1859.

Also the shop keeper states that Germany has run out of silver, however there are many silver troph

However, the Red Baron's plane had three wings. Further more, single wing planes were not developed until well after World War 1.
