| Incorrect credit given for actor
In the list of characters and their actors Nick Tate is credited as playing James McCarthy however I kept saying to myself that's a James Purefoy and sure enough at the end when they rolled the credits. Sure enough the part of James McCarthy was played by James Purefoy.
