Trivia

The title of the film is nothing to do with the Doomsday Clock, which was not introduced until 8 years after the events of the film, and is nothing to do with British Intelligence. As the character of Captsin Drey explains in the film itself, it refers to Miller's Intelligence phone contact number which is Whitehall 1154. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the movie the announcement of war with Germany to the British people was made by Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister, NOT by Winston Churchill. The announcement was made Sept 3, 1939. Churchill did not become Prime Minister until May 10, 1940. See more »

Warm thriller
17 January 2021 | by jtc-01900See all my reviews

Pre-WW2 thriller with enough twists and turns to keep the suspense going till the end. Thoroughly enjoyable performance, well written, excellent cast.
