Continuity & Trivia

  1. 1:17 (and again at 2:53 and 16:24 and 37:50) - Steed has a pile of sporting equipment packed, ready to go on holiday... just like in The Girl From Auntie and Basil in Wish You Were Here.

  5. 5:00-5:23 - Steed thinks it's October 14th but Tara shows him a pastcard dated October 21st, and he's been on holiday for three weeks, so it's now November, probably Guy Fawkes Day. However The Morning After was Tuesday the 21st, and it looks like the bank calendar says October.
  6. 5:55 - Those are very ugly shirts in Steed's luggage.
  7. 7:59 and 17:45 - Are those holes in Dr Meitner's plastic spectacles, or small magnifying lenses?

  12. 12:45 - Father takes Steed's name off the active list and reduces his security rating to Third Class.

  18. 26:13 - Tara appears to break in with a butter knife.
  19. 26:40 - Tara's choice of shoes is odd for someone who's sneaking into a house...
  20. 27:50-29:15 - Delgado and Thorson do the whole fight sequence themselves.
