Dear Lord...

I have been known, in the past, to ruin other people's viewing pleasure of historical films by pointing out the gross distortions/mild inaccuracies they make. This usually gets me hit, or at least tutted. I am, however, going to acknowledge the master of pedantry... Mr Iain Dale.
I do have one slight niggle though. [pedant alert] The gold Ford Cortina driven by Chief Inspector Gene Hunt wasn't actually available in 1973. It has a vertical dashboard which were only introduced in late 1974 models. The high rear seats were also not available in the 1973 model. The 1973 models also never had GXL headlights. The whole interior is of a 2000E, yet it is badged GXL[/pedant alert]
Breathtaking, magnificent pedantry of the highest order.
