It's apparent to me that editors would sometimes have to paraphrase and/or re-sequence the testimony, in order to make what remained after the editing process make (apparent) sense. This alone, I'd...

Whether passing along, going along, coming along or "further on", neither of these mean "entering Miller's Court". If she had really said that, then all the papers would have picked up on it. Yet...

The images used in the documenatry are reconstructions. The angles are different, and the details are slightly different but, overall, the reconstructions are excellent.
