The suicide pact made between the characters is established for period New Year's Eve - St Valentine's Day. When Martin and Jess meet her father opposite the Houses of Parliament, the clock on the tower of Big Ben shows 4.40pm. At that time of year it would already be dark but it is bright and sunny.
