Revealing mistake: The opening text describing how London is badly flooded because of heavy rains and global warming is accompanied by an aerial shot of the city. From the level of the Thames it is clear that this wasn't even filmed at high tide, let alone during a flood.

Factual error: The radio at the beginning of film says that the flood problem will increase with the approaching full moon. Later it is revealed that the killer only kills when there is a new moon. Since he kills that evening, and tides are highest with full and new moons, the radio should have been warning about that evening's tide, not the high tide in 2 weeks time.

Continuity mistake: When Stone sees the little girl outside his flat, after the murder there, his face is very wet from the rain. He turns around and it is now totally dry.
