Trivia

Ken Hutchison provides an introduction to this episode on the DVD released in 2010. He said they shot scenes so fast, you didn't have time to discuss things like "motivation" to the director. All the director told him was, "Robert Shaw in From Russia With Love," which regards the blond-haired wig Ken's character wears, and the cold-blooded nature. And so it was Robert Shaw he had in mind for this character. See more »

Goofs

Mrs. Jenner told Detective Inspector Regan that Mr. Jenner had salmonella food poisoning. She then stated that Mr. Jenner was allergic to the food they were served, which contradicts her earlier statement. All other references to Mr. Jenner's ill condition allege that he has food poisoning. See more »
