Continuity 

On the boat in the harbor, after Inspector Ahmet tells Dr. Petrie to contact the Home Secretary's office, the sky and weather shift abruptly from blindingly sunny and clear to dark, overcast and windy with choppy seas (as if it were about to rain) for the shots of the scarf.

Factual errors 

In scenes that were supposed to have taken place in Turkey in the 1920s, characters are shown wearing the fez, the wearing of which Turkish leader Mustafa Kemal Ataturk banned (because of its connections with feudalism) in the 1920s.
