...isn't it the glass that's green?
Ep 7: Middle Muddle
Stephen Fry stated that mirrors are slightly green, and while I don't doubt that, I'm almost positive it's because of the iron content in most sheet glass. As per this article:

Stephen was incorrect in saying the glass is colourless as no commercially manufactured glass is truly colourless.

I believe you're right, and that is the point that should've been made in the show.

However, since the glass is part of the mirror, I don't think it's wrong to state that mirrors are slightly green.

Stephen certainly shouldn't have stated that the glass is colourless.
