My Thoughts

All of the information on this episode so far has been user-submitted. This episode has not been released on video in North America yet, so I have not been able to view it.

Continuity & Production Problems

The strangled corpse of the pilot blinks.

One of the characters comments on a four-engined plane crashing into soft ground during thick fog - The pre-credit title sequence shows a twin-propellered plane crashing into an electricity pylon.

When Dr. Kingís car pulls up outside the pub, Joyce and Vincent are distracted by the loudness of the sound effect and repeat a word of their dialogue.

Vincentís face is suddenly thrown into shadow when the lighting technician dims the studio lights when he meets Dr King in the pubís dining booth.
