The Jaguar sedan used is Left Hand Drive (ie: for the American Market) there would be no point in having one in the UK where vehicles are Right Hand Drive.

Character error 

The blind Philip Hannan doesn't "look" at things he's picking up, or people he's talking to. People who have lost their sight still do this, though people blind from birth may not.

Revealing mistakes 

(At 02.40) There is a half inch of tape on the take up spool on the tape recorder. Philip asks Bob to type up what he had just recorded. Bob proceeds to remove the take-up spool (should have been the full, left-hand spool) which suddenly has no tape on it, and takes it into his office "to listen to it".
