Superintendent Grant is aware that a gang of villains about to pull a bank job are using a radio transmitter to contact their boss, and it is housed in the pub next door to the bank.

Director David Wickes asked writer Troy Kennedy-Martin to include scenes showing the bank robbers in the vault. In Kennedy-Martin's original script, the first view of the robbers was as they emerged from the trapdoors inside the pub and on the pavement at the end of the episode. See more »
The downstairs scenes in the bar were shot at the Warrington pub in Maida Vale whereas the upstairs scenes in Iris's bedroom and on the landing by the telephone were shot at Colet Court in Hammersmith. There is a very jarring cut between the two when the old man runs up the stairs to answer the phone and then runs back down to the bar in a panic to give his "Old Bill - all over the place" speech. As seen from upstairs, the staircase has two flights in opposite directions with a half landing in between, and has no carpet. Seen from below, the staircase has two flights at 90 degrees with a half landing, and has a red carpet. See more »
