DID YOU KNOW? Edit
- Despite there being an entirely rational explanation in the end, the episode still sees Holmes witness some very strange goings on himself. The episode forces Holmes to once again acknowledge there are things in this world we can not always understand.
- The episode was originally a feature length 80 minutes in the original run, but this was later cut down drastically to a 60 minute episode during its full length re-release.
- This was the first episode we hear of Miss Blakes legendary Auntie Pat, a line which was entirely adlibbed by Tamzin Dunstone.
