      • A clip from this episode can be seen in Patricia Routledge's "Funny Women" episode, and is found on the Keeping Up Appearances 'Hyacinth in Full Bloom' DVD set.

      • "Fingers" is an expression often used by Hyacinth of Keeping Up Appearances to prevent workmen from touching her walls.

      • This episode did not air in the PBS rotation of episodes, possibly due to the fact that they didn't want to associate Patricia Routledge, star of the popular Keeping Up Appearances, with such violent subject matter.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Several times after gathering clues, Hetty refers to putting "the little grey cells" to work. This may be a reference to Agatha Christies's great Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot. When he was thinking about a case, Poirot would often say he was using his "little grey cells."
