Other mistake: During the hold up when Medhurst is sprung from the police van, the breakdown truck used to pull the doors of the van reverses towards the police van twice after releasing the chains off the doors before driving away, and the camera lights are reflected in the side of the white getaway car.
Continuity mistake: The first scene when Steven and Arlene are in the office you can see a major road through the windows behind them. When the camera is on them in alternate shots the vehicles seen on the road in the first shots should been seen when the angle changes but are not.
Continuity mistake: In the final scene, when Regan is mixing a drink while on the phone to Carter, he opens the fridge and pulls a green bottle out and puts it on the worktop. The scene cuts back to Carter, but when it cuts back to Regan the bottle has disappeared and Regan is pulling ice cubes out of an ice bucket that wasn't there before. Also another green bottle on the worktop has moved away from the wall.
Continuity mistake: In the final scene Regan hails a taxi as it pulls in the taxi is passed by a green Jaguar and a yellow Ford Transit. When the angle changes, these two vehicles should pass by, but they don't. Then when the taxi turns round and drives off, the vehicles in front of it should have been seen in the previous angle but they weren't.
Continuity mistake: In the yard behind the furniture shop when Regan and Carter are nearly crushed by the reversing van they escape by climbing up some old cabinets and then jumping on the van roof. Regan then jumps down on the bonnet before banging on the windscreen and having a go at the driver. Carter has disappeared when he should be visible on the van roof. Then when the Irish man comes out of the shop Carter has reappeared, climbing down from the roof to the bonnet of the van, also the two stunt doubles have darker hair than John Thaw and Dennis Waterman.
