Trivia

This episode was unique as it was the only episode from the regular series to not feature the memorable title sequence of the tortoises. Instead, the episode begins straight from the Meldrew's living room, with the credits appearing on the screen. The only other occasions this happened was on the Christmas specials, but never in a regular episode See more »
