Trivia: In the 'Cornetto' trilogy, Timothy Dalton stars in Hot Fuzz, and Pierce Brosnan in The World's End. Both played Bond consecutively - there were six years between the release of Hot Fuzz and The World's End. There was a six year gap between Dalton's last Bond film and and Brosnan's first film.

Factual error: When Gary gives the police officer his name and address as Peter Page, the postcode he tells him is invalid - in the UK, the second half of a postcode always begins with a number.
