Factual errors 

When Dr. Emma Russell gives her lecture at Oxford about her amazing cold fusion breakthrough, the lecture takes place in the 1st and 2nd year undergraduate teaching laboratory most likely because it looks "sciencey." No lectures are given in this room, even the most mundane, never mind something of this importance.

When Emma is looking through suspect sketches at New Scotland Yard with the two detectives, the female detective says that the suspect is known by many different names, including "Louie" (or "Louis") "Guanella". Emma's response is "Of course... all names of Catholic saints." In the case of "Louie Guanella", this is incorrect. Luigi Guanella was a Catholic priest from Northern Italy, born in 1842 and died in 1912. Guanella was beatified in 1964 but has NOT yet been canonized (made a saint) by the Roman Catholic Church. He is therefore referred to as Blessed Luigi Guanella, not Saint (Luigi) Guanella.
