Peter Hilton (Matthew Beard) falls out severely with Alan Turing because of the effect his actions could have on Hilton's brother, serving in action. In the documentary about Bletchley Park, Station X (1999), the real Peter Hilton (by then a professor of mathematics) pays the following tribute to Alan Turing: "Alan Turing ... was a genius ... and there's all the difference between a very intelligent person and a genius.

The usual case was that the settings were changed at midnight and traffic started minutes thereafter. Denniston also says that they have 18 hours to "break the code" and then they had to start again, but work on deciphering could continue past midnight and even days later. See more »
