Goof: Dr Bullard says that Alan Hollingsworth was poisoned by Haloperidol and calls the substance "a sleeping pill". In fact, Haloperidol is very potent antypsychotic drug, usually prescribed in cases of severe psychosomatic disorders. It is extremely unlikely that anyone would use such easily traceable drug instead of regular sleeping pills or other common medicine.
