Edit
Trivia Michael Dobbs, the author of the original book, was angered at the opening scene depicting Margaret Thatcher's funeral. As a result he demanded his name be removed from the credits which just say "Based on the novel The Final Cut" without mentioning his name. See more »
Goofs When the security man at No. 10 enters the Urquharts' bedroom with his pistol drawn and at the ready, the gun actually has no live round in the chamber and is thus not ready to fire (we can tell this by the fact that the Glock's trigger is to the rear, which would not be the case if the action had been cycled to chamber a round).

Quotes [Prime Minister Urquhart is watching Makepeace being interviewed on television]
Tom Makepeace: To quote the prime minister, "You might very well think that. I couldn't possibly comment."
