  • Notes

    • Anita Dobson was offered the part of Captain Tau when Rob Grant and Doug Naylor approached her partner, Queen guitarist Brian May, to play Lister's guitar-playing hands double. Although May couldn't make it, Grant and Naylor were astounded when Dobson agreed to appear anyway. Grant and Naylor have since indicated that, if they had known she really would be interested, they would have written something more substantial for her.
      Anita Dobson isn't really known much in the USA, but she is fairly well known in the UK for an early role in the long running BBC1 soap East Enders, as well as for her marriage to May.
