    • This episode show what the Y&R set looks like before the set is dressed.

    • In the teaser you see a photo Of Victoria. This episode was shot on Y & R's two sound stages.

    • In addition to her Diagnosis Murder duties, Victora Rowell (Amanda) also acts on The Young and the Restless, which leads to several mistaken identity instances in this episode. Rainer Grant reprises her role as Tahnee from episode # 33, "The New Healers", one of the few times this happens throughout the run of the show.

  • Allusions

    • I believe that the fact of the killer being U.N. Owen is a reference to a book by Agatha Christie, now called "And then there were none" (the original title included the 'n' word, so in the UK it has been changed). In that book, the murderer (a judge with a sick sense of humour) signs himself "U.N. Owen" in letters to entice 9 people (himself being the 10th, for "Ten little 'Ns'" who all died) to an island - where they are confronted with crimes for which they were never tried or punished, before he kills all of them, and ultimately himself.
