Keeping Up Appearances (UK)

    In this and many of the later episodes, David Griffin (Emmett Hawksworth) is noticeably haggard, and also paler and gaunter. This was because the actor was being treated for cancer at the time. However it is incorporated into the plot line and explained during this episode: due to terror of going outside and maybe running into Hyacinth, he has stayed indoors for an unhealthily long time, and it has given him "prison pallor".

    Goof (errors in geography): When they are supposedly waiting for the QE2 in Copenhagen, they are actually in Oslo. Several landmarks can be seen, and most notably the surrounding countryside is hilly. Also, the taxi dropping them off has an Oslo roof sign.
