    • Injoke: The elderly escapee at the beginning, 93, is dressed like Number Six (Patrick McGoohan) from the original series The Prisoner. His memory-drawing is of Big Ben, which was featured in "The Chimes of Big Ben", and his flat is decorated in a similar style to the original Number Six's flat.

    Trivia (1)

    • At the end of part 1, Six is running toward the towers' shadows, yet on the next shot, the sun is glaring towards him (the shadow and the glare can't be on the same side).
