Factual errors 

The computer screens on the detective's desk read 'London Police,' which does not exist. It should read Metropolitan Police, City of London Police, or British Transport Police.

Miscellaneous 

When Chloe's parents are visiting her and Chris (before he takes Nola's call on his mobile), the stunning view of the Thames from their floor to ceiling windows is strangely static: two boats on the water never move throughout the scene.

Plot holes 

The police would discover Nola's pregnancy obviously. That would make Chris much more suspect, especially after they did DNA checks, which there is no way they would not do.

Chris threw away the jewels including the ring into the river somewhere in the center the next day. It is never shown he did it in Nola s neighborhood. Then the ring turns up in the pocket of junkie in Nola s neighborhood. Very strange coincidence, not believable.

Revealing mistakes 

In the scene in the Royal Opera House, the performance of La Traviata is, inexplicably, accompanied by piano rather than full orchestra.

Factual errors 

The music played during the scene where Nola is killed is credited incorrectly. It is not the 'death of Desdemona' scene but the end of the 2nd act of Othello by Verdi and is concerned with Iago inflaming Othello's jealousy and Othello swearing to have vengeance.
