Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (1)
When he's tapping on the desk with a pencil, Tom is spelling out "Claire" in Morse code.
Mick Jagger owned an original four-rotor Enigma encoding machine which he loaned to the film for historical accuracy in constructing props.
When Hester Wallace decodes the long list of Polish names the camera zooms in on the name "Zygalski". Henryk Zygalski was a Polish mathematician who helped to break Enigma.
The Bletchley Park mansion in this film is not *the* actual Bletchley Park mansion, but another property. According to the tour guides at the real thing, the real Bletchley Park did not look enough like Bletchley Park to the production company to have been used in the film.
Thomas Jericho is loosely based on real-life mathematician and code-breaker Alan Turing (1912-1954).
The scarf that Tom wears throughout the film is a King's College Cambridge scarf, which is the college Tom is a fellow of in the book.
Kate Winslet was pregnant with her daughter during the filming of this movie, so the schedule was arranged around that, and at the end of the movie when her character is pregnant, she didn't need a prosthetic.
One of the motivations behind making this movie was the indignation of many British World War 2 veterans (and civilians) over the movie U-571 (2000), in which the capture of the Enigma was shown to be done by American navy officers (despite the fact that the makers of that movie had indicated their movie to be a work of fiction and no accurate portrayal of the events leading to the capture of the Enigma).
Hester Wallace adjusts her spectacles 16 separate times throughout the movie.
