The film ran into a spot of trouble with the law here when around forty out-of-period cars were spirited away out of camera range without the necessary permissions being obtained.

He invites the lieutenant to tea but unbeknownst to him, Passepartout had spiked his tea with the drugs he received in Aden, making Fogg delirious.

From here the pair travels by taxi, via place Vendome and rue de Castiglione, to the Thomas Cook travel bureau in the arcades of the rue de Rivoli.

On some crossings, freighter travel might be an option if there is no passenger ship, but the number of spaces on these vessels is limited; a private ocean-going vessel (such as a yacht) may also be an option. While one Cunard passenger liner still plies the seas, most passenger ship travel is by cruise ships designed as entertainment rather than as the backbone of an efficient transport system. You can book tables for drinks at the tavern every day and lunch tables from 12 pm – 3 pm every weekday. It takes another 22 days for Phileas and Passepartout to travel from Yokohama (Japan) to San Francisco (USA).

James Delingpole in The Spectator also gave a negative review of the series, complaining about its attempts to speak to contemporary political issues.

Fix promises Passepartout that now, having left British soil, he will no longer try to delay Fogg's journey but instead support him in getting back to Britain, where he can arrest him. The scene was filmed, along with the ‘Indian pow-wow’ where Passepartout is nearly burned at the stake, in the now gone Craterville Park Ranch Resort near Lawton, on I-44, about 70 miles southwest of Oklahoma City, which closed down shortly after filming. In particular, the main transcontinental line no longer passes through Wyoming (which has been left without passenger railroads altogether), instead having been routed further south through Denver, Colorado. The eye-catching ‘pepperpot’ building at 5 Lower Grosvenor Place at the end of the narrow road leading out of the northeastern side of Victoria Square became the exterior of Hesketh-Baggott’s Employment Office, where manservant Mr Foster ( John Gielgud) complains to agency boss Hesketh-Baggott ( Noël Coward ).

Jules Verne – Around the World in Eighty Days, a 4-part drama adaptation in 2010 by Terry James and directed by Janet Whittaker for BBC Radio 7 (now BBC Radio 4 Extra), starred Leslie Phillips as Phileas Fogg, Yves Aubert as Passepartout and Jim Broadbent as Sergeant Fix. Around the World by Steam, via Pacific Railway, was published in 1871 by the Union Pacific Railroad Company, and an Around the World in A Hundred and Twenty Days by Edmond Planchut.
