Goofs

Early on there is an establishing shot of Brett driving his Aston Martin in the real Rome. After this point, however, any seemingly Italian number plates on cars are obvious fakes (made by the props department), whereas cars in the background have French number plates, revealing that the episode was mainly shot in France, not Italy.
