  • Trivia

    • Mrs Thackeray mentions that Lady Malcolm, the titled lady who organizes the Servants Ball, is the daughter of Lily Langtry. Lily Langtry (1853-1929)was an actress renowned for being one of King Edward VII's mistresses. Though she did have a daughter with her husband, there was always a suspicion that the girl was the king's child.

    • The movie Miss Whisset and Mr Pritchard go to see is the 1939 drama 'Love Affair' starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer. Its tragic ending somewhat foreshadows the conclusion of one of the story lines of this episode.
