Goofs

At the end of this episode, an announcer introduces a recap of the entire program, consisting of split-second repeats of the various sketches and cartoons (like fast forwarding on a DVD). However, after the Crackpot Religion cartoon, there are brief shots of two more cartoons (one involving a devil peeping out of the ground and three figures crucified to telephone poles behind him) that were not shown in the episode. (It is possible that these cartoons were cut before the show aired.) See more »

Quotes

Michael Palin: Ah, I'm afraid we'll have to stop the film there, as some of the scenes which followed were of a violent nature which may have proved distressing to some of our viewers. Though, not to me, I can tell you.

Confusion between Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones
17 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Thought you ought to know that Neville Shunt, writer of the train timetable murder mystery, was played by Terry JONES not Terry Gilliam, as listed above. Besides that, I loved the episode, as I do all Monty Python (hence the 10 stars), but, of course, particularly the train timetable murder mystery. Although the murder mystery bit itself is not overly funny, the bit following it where the writer is shown at a typewriter, pretending its a train is hilarious. Also the bit after that, where John Clease, as a critic, discusses the meaning and whether there is deliberate ambiguity, etc., in a very round about way is very funny - anyone who has done some kind of literary analysis or studied poetry or anything at all will find Clease's performance here funny.
