    • Rupert Penry-Jones (Roddy) was in a play where he had shaved his head. The producers wanted him so badly for the part that they made a wig for him, which took three weeks to make!

    • The location for Aunt Laura's house was an elderly people's home. The lift seen in the film was built especially for this episode.

  • Notes

    • This episode is based on Agatha Christie's book Sad Cypress (1940).

      Interviewed by Francis Wyndham a quarter of a century later, Agatha Christie said: "Sad Cypress could have been good, but it was quite ruined by having Poirot in it. I always thought something was wrong with it but didn't discover what until I read it again some time after."
