Episode Quotes
Grace: (regarding the corpse) It'd give him a bit more dignity, wouldn't it, to have a name?
Boyd: What, like... Crispy Duck? Or Ice Box? Ice Cube?
Grace: You always go too far.
Boyd: Mr. Freeze?

Boyd: What if I told you between one percent and five percent of your population was under threat, that's two hundred thousand to a million people - does that work? Or have you got so many damn people in your country, you don't give a shit?

Episode Goofs
Boyd visits the freight terminal, apparently at London Heathrow Airport. In the background, a Ryanair plane can be seen on the tarmac - Ryanair do not fly into or out of London Heathrow Airport.

Factual errors: DS Stephenson Tells the 'Collector' that on February 2nd 1998 approx $2Million of Pentium 4 Processors were stolen. Intel didn't introduce the Pentium 4 until November 20th 2000.

Continuity: The date on the CCTV camera shows "12 Sept 2005", while as the CCTV shots from episode 2 show "15 Jan 2005", even though the plot leads us to believe the two episodes are chronological.
