Bridgerton season three editing errors

There are loads so here’s a rundown of the sloppiest editing errors in Bridgerton season three

How did no one spot any of these ??

After waiting two years for Bridgerton season three, they dropped a series that is full of more editing errors than Whistledown has secrets. The show is of course as beautiful and magical as it always is but when there are so many errors it can really pull the viewer out the moment and make them very aware they’re watching a show rather than being indulged in the story.

From mysteriously changing hairstyles mid scene to side characters somehow transporting across the room at society events, here’s a run down of all the sloppiest editing errors in Bridgerton season three that you won’t be able to unsee:

Penelope’s hair goes up and down in the mirror scene

This editing error happens in episode five in what is being called the mirror scene by Bridgerton fans. We see Colin and Penelope stood in front of a mirror and they both watch as he undresses her before they have sex for the first time. The first item of clothing that Colin removes is a hair pin that is holding Penelope’s hair up. We see her hair fall down over her shoulders whilst Colin compliments Penelope saying: “And then there is the way your cascades down your shoulders.” There is then a very pointed shot of Colin dropping the hair pin and it bouncing off the floor.

However, when we quickly see Penelope again, her hair is still in a bun being held up by the pin but then from a different angle, it’s down again. Now I’ve spotted it I can’t unsee it and it really distracts from the romance of the scene. It’s amazing that no one spotted this, especially as such a point is made of Colin letting down her hair.

The error happens in the very first episode of the new season, after Penelope storms out of the ball when Cressida ruins her new dress. Despite spending ages on her glow-up getting ready for the ball she runs out and throws her hairpiece on the ground. And then when Colin comes out to see if she’s okay and they talk, her hairpiece stays on the ground. But she then gets in her carriage home leaving it still on the floor.

She goes home and then writes the scathing stuff about him in Whilstledown and the camera immediately cuts to her furiously scribbling at her desk wearing, you guessed it, the very same hairpiece that she threw and left on the ground in the previous scene!

The error actually happens across the season and is constantly switching, but is most prominent in part two, episode six in particular. After Francesca announces her engagement, Colin goes to his study to write (and you can actually read what he secretly writes here!) and Eloise follows him in.

We see him writing with a quill in his right hand scribbling away, the camera then pans to Eloise when she asks him if he’s moping about the chocolate macaroon. But when the camera goes back to Colin he is holding the quill and writing in his left hand!

Okay so this one is more of just a continuity error but it still counts – it happens in episode six when Francesca is announcing her engagement. The family is sitting at home fighting over the last chocolate macaroon when Francesca announces the news to them.

In the scene, Eloise sits next to her mother Violet and goes to grab her hand after the announcement. But then the shot cuts out to a wider shot of the room and they do the exact same thing all over again, with Eloise grabbing her mother’s hand.

This error was spotted by someone on TikTok who apparently used to work at Netflix and is now really good at spotting them. It happens in the very first episode of the new season, around 15 minutes in, when Colin returns from his travels and is chatting to the young ladies of the ton.

Colin is speaking to a group of women, including the lady in the yellow on the left in the picture above. But then he turns to walk away to the next group of ladies and the same woman is there in that group, looking shocked to see him! So she’s either a VERY quick walker, a time traveller or has mastered teleportation.
