Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Closing still:
  • Roger Davis' voice is heard during the opening scene, but he does not make an appearance in the episode and is uncredited. The voiceover is an audio sample taken from episode 460.
  • All of the Collins family members present for the séance are wearing the same costumes they wore in episode 365, however they are positioned differently in the drawing room.
  • Only a fragment of time has passed in the present era between this episode and episode 365, which was broadcast in 1967. Going forward however, the timeline is treated as the then-current present of 1968, rather than continuing on from 1967.
