Trivia

The letter Q is not used in Turkish so "Shebbeq" would not be a legal name in Turkey. "Şebek", which is how the name would be written phonetically in Turkish, means "baboon, gibbon or hideously ugly person". See more »

Goofs

The episode is set in March, judging by the scene in the car when Thompson accuses Carew of being involved in the robbery. However when Regan stops at the petrol station to check his car, there is a calendar which gives the month as September. See more »
