Character mistake: According to Alan Turing, Enigma has "150 million million million" starting positions (1.5 x 10^20), while Shark has "4 thousand million billion", or 4 x 10^18). So Shark, the "ultimate refinement" of Enigma, has FEWER starting positions? (00:10:25)
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.
Tom Jericho: Puck and Claire were having an af.
Wigram: Were seeing each other, as you like to put it. Seeing each other's brains out.
Trivia: In the scene where Saffron is teaching Dougray how to dance at her favorite dance hall, there is a shot of some of the customers sitting and drinking. You'll see Mick Jagger talking to a girl at a table.
