When Paul Drake is staking out the Thatcher house, he is sitting in his snazzy new convertible, with the top down, on the same side of the street as the Thatcher house, in full view of everyone, including Doris Thatcher and Karen Ross (true, it is dark). He even walks right past Doris Thatcher on his way up to Karen Ross' house! I'm no private detective, but this makes no sense (except as a plot device). And we see the trouble this gets Paul into. And how were the police able to sneak up on him like that? Very sloppy work on Paul's part. Submitted by 65tosspowertrap, 10/18/2013.
When testifying about Karen Ross's shoe as evidence, Inspector Wade states that there was blood "on the instep"; however, the shoe is a pump and, therefore, has no instep. jfh 18Oct2016.
+ In 2019, high-heel pumps are advertised as having an instep. If the corresponding part of a pump in your part of the world does not have an instep, then perhaps it has a different name or "instep" refers to an arch support. Per The Free Dictionary here, an instep is "1. The arched middle part of the human foot between the toes and the ankle. 2. The part of a shoe or stocking covering the instep....footwear shaped to fit the foot (below the ankle) with a flexible upper of leather or plastic and a sole and heel of heavier material" Submitted by (lowercase, with a comma and period) masonite, 03/20/19.

At 40 minutes into the DVD, the prosecuting attorney questions Peter Gregson about some letters. He says that they were written by his daughter, Sandra Gregson but the letters he reads were written to Sandra Gregson, not by Sandra Gregson. Submitted by BobwloCB, 10/6/2014.
Bad Lighting: At the airport, when Peter went to the phone booth, there were shadows on the background screen from people behind Ben Willoughby. Submitted by H. Mason 11/24/14
That entrance hall set with the elaborately carved staircase sure gets a workout; it's used for just about every 'grand house scene. That certainly is an elaborate court frock Sandra wears. For once Harry Jackson doesn't play a heel! DODay 10/24/17
Plot Twist we've seen it so many times: someone - almost invariably the principal guest character - has a tempestuous relationship with the (soon-to-be) victim, s/he storms to the latter's house for a confrontation, finds a body instead (conveniently bloodying a hand in the process) and ends up arrested. And that's what happened here...well, almost: so how did Peter manage to avoid being accused ?? Apparently the wheels of Justice in San Francisco turn - if not necessarily more logically - differently. Notcom, 041521.
I think this show is one of the best examples of a villain who is both unexpected yet perfectly logical. DOD 12/16/21
