    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Clem: If you could find work...


        Langtry: Work? I'm a gentleman. I can't go looking for work.

      • Lillie: With no one to talk to, I'll go mad.


        Doctor Lewis: You have your husband for company.


        Lillie: He's worse than no one. I think he enjoys my being ill. It means he doesn't have to make conversation.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Don Fellows was one of a group of American actors who spent their career in the UK working on both the stage and small screen (others include Shane Rimmer, Christopher Malcolm, Bruce Boa and Michael Shannon, the last two of which have roles in later episodes of this series). His performance here as James MacNeil Whistler has to be counted among his best.

      • The drawings of Lillie in this and subsequent episodes, which are done in the style of Frank Miles, were done by Philip Meninsky

      • The vhs release of this series included the breaks between acts (roughly at the 20 and 40 minute mark) of each episode. The dvd set has removed these, but, occasionally you can her the strains of the main theme at the start or end of a scene.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Reggie: So Young Lochinvar turned out to be the old man from the sea, eh?

        Young Lochinvar is the main character from Sir William Scott's Marmion (1808), the epic poem about the Battle of Flodden.
