Some scenes were deleted from all VHS and DVD versions. These include additional dream and murder sequences along with an introduction of Durkin's girlfriend, who is credited in every version of the film as character of Robin played by actress Roberta Eaton, even though her scene is only in old TV versions of the movie which reportedly included some of the other deleted scenes. In Eaton's deleted scene her character is angry at Durkin because he wasn't home for a long time, so both of them decide to "catch up". See more »
Although the film is supposedly set in a flooded London, all the footage shot along the Thames, shows the water levels at a perfectly normal level. This is most evident when we see the Thames flood barrier, which is always shown open.
(The barrier was built in the early 80's to protect many London boroughs from rising sea levels) See more »

Dick Durkin (Neil Duncan) is the reason to watch 'Split Second'. Dick's plenty competent as the newly assigned partner of Harley Stone (Rutger Hauer) as the beginning unfolds, but he clearly questions whether Harley is fully sane.
However, as his character evolves along with the evidence of the case he's on, and especially in the moments immediately after the conversion of his partnership with Harley, the presentation of 'Dick' by Duncan is pure fun just to watch.
Decent action, decent suspense, plus a portion of horror and sci-fi. But watch it for Dick Durkin.
