Factual error: After Jim escapes the house and makes his way back to the blockade there is a shot of him operating the siren. In the background is a sign saying that the M55 junction for Blackpool is in 1/3 mile. The M55 is nowhere near the M602, where the blockade is supposed to be. (01:30:20)

Factual error: In the scene on the motorway where we see Manchester burning, the road signs are for the A421 and A507, which are at M1 junction 13 near Milton Keynes and nowhere near Manchester.

Factual error: After they leave Jim's parents' house Jim and Selena are seen walking through Canary Wharf, but they're coming from the wrong direction. The Docklands Light Railway tracks that they use to cross the river are in front of them and their base (in Canary Wharf Tube station) is even further in front of them. Why did they cross back over the river and then walk away from the safety of their base? (00:29:00)

Factual error: In the scenes driving to Manchester the motorway is completely clear of traffic, no abandoned vehicles of any sort. With an outbreak like this happening the motorway would be gridlocked.

Continuity mistake: The chain and collar vanishes from Mailer's neck as he runs into the mansion. (01:33:45 - 01:35:20)

Hello

More trivia for 28 Days Later

Question: At the end we are left with the question of the pilot's intentions, and what happened. Is he going to help them, or pull an about-face and machine-gun them down thinking they're infected?

Answer: That question is actually answered. The pilot is speaking Finnish, and he says into the radio "lähetätkö helikopterin" which translates as "Can you please send a helicopter?" Looks like he was actually helping them after all, and there is still some civilization (or at least people with radios and helicopters).
