Did You Know?

Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Sam advises Marc Bolan, the lead singer of T.Rex, to drive carefully (referring to the fact that Bolan would die four years later in a car accident). Bolan never drove a car or learned to drive, he was a passenger in the car that crashed.See more »
Gene Hunt:How did you know Red Rum was gonna win the national?
Sam Tyler:Just a hunch.
Gene Hunt:No inside information? No tip off from someone in the racing fraternity?
Sam Tyler:I wouldn't do that would I?
Gene Hunt:I didn't think you'd lock a murder suspect in a giant fridge.
Sam Tyler:He wouldn't answer my question.
