There is one major discrepancy between this film and the way Modesty's background is described in the novels and comic strips. According to the flashbacks shown in this movie, Lob, the old man who tutored Modesty, was not only a scholarly professor who knew seven languages and had a great general knowledge, but was also a martial arts master who taught Modesty advanced unarmed combat (despite the fact that Modesty, as a child, is also shown saving Lob from some thieving boys). In the novels and comic strips Lob was the intellectual tutor, but he was totally helpless and needed Modesty to defend him. Modesty learned unarmed combat at a later time in her life, picking it up various places including from masters in the Far East. See more
When Modesty opens to the first page of Lob's copy of "Morte d'Arthur", the text is in English, as it should be. As she leafs through the pages, however, the text changes to French. See more
