Continuity mistake: In the scenes in Bletchley (south of England) it is obviously early Spring (daffodils, few leaves on trees), but towards the end of the film, and apparently only a few days later, when a German U boat surfaces off the coast of Scotland, it is clearly high summer, with all the trees covered in leaves. Trees don't come into leaf that quickly, and the seasons are always later in Scotland.
Plot hole: When the police search the white car and the barn they fail to find the compartment in the car behind the boot in which the decoding equipment was hidden. This is completely improbable. It was a standard car, the compartment was not a secret add on, and the police were supposed to undertake a thorough search of everything.
Continuity mistake: In the scene in Scotland where Puck is rendezvousing with the German submarine whilst being watched by the British security services and police, there are several shots of the sub through binoculars supposedly from the perspective of the British on top of a hill. These views are all (with the exception of the last one of Puck meeting the sub) from sea level.
