Enigma

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.

Trivia: The twice-used shot of the train rounding a curve is actually near Rabbit Bridge on the Great Central steam railway near Loughborough. The train is in fact heading South; according to the film, it is first heading West (Cambridge to Bletchley), then North (Bletchley to Manchester). The same locomotive is hauling both trains - unlikely - and is suspiciously clean for wartime. However, it was a masterful touch to dub in a passing steam train as background noise when the security man interviewed Jericho in his digs. Such background noise is often conspicuously absent in films.

Continuity mistake: After the "car chase" the white car gets put in the barn. When the black car arrives it is covered in mud (so much they have to wipe it off the windscreen) from the dirt track. The white car only has a few specks of dirt.

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.
