There is a continuity problem in this episode with the time of day of when everything occurs. For example, in the beginning of the episode, it seems that the murder and subsequent driving through the woods happens at night, as all is dark and the vehicle's headlights are on. However, as time goes on, the scenery and sky appears lighter, as like dusk. After the car's bulb is changed, a clip is shown of the car driving through a wooded area and the shadows are very long, as they are in the late afternoon or early evening, which would indicate it was earlier in the day.
This episode is based on the short story "One More Mile to Go" by F. J. Smith. This story was first published in Manhunt (June, 1956).
