Trivia

In "The Duchess Assignment", the Duchess of Royston was based on the distinguished British stage actress 'Dame Edith Evans (I)', best known for her role as Lady Bracknell in the film version of Oscar Wilde's novel, The Importance of Being Earnest (1952). This is reinforced by Ray Barrett's marvelous voice for the character, which understandably had the rest of the cast in stitches at the recording session. See more »

Goofs

In the establishing shot of New York City, the Empire State Building can be seen in the background. This episode originally aired a few months after the episode "Terror in New York City" (where the Empire State Building collapsed when it was being moved), so the events in this episode should have taken place before "Terror in New York City".
