Character's first names vary throughout the series: Mr. Lucas is variously James or Dick; Mr. Harman starts as Harry, then becomes Beverley; the cleaner has three different names, always played by the same actress.
The sex of Mrs. Slocombe's cat, Tiddles, frequently changes from him to her.
Throughout the series, the scripts constantly change the location of the Ladies' and Gentlemens' departments, sometimes referring to it being on the third floor, sometimes on the fourth. Also, the theme song lyrics indicate the department is on the first floor.

Throughout the series, the entire staff of the floor takes breaks together. That would mean that the entire floor would be closed due to lack of employees during break times. Indeed, one episode specifically deals with this problem. Mr. Grace feels that they are losing too much business during this hour, and pushes the lunch break back to later in the afternoon, leading the staff to hit the roof.
