Trivia

Sam questions a woman who identifies herself as Layla Dylan. She later admits that her name is Leslie Roy, saying she named herself after "the music." Her fake first name references the song "Layla" by Derek & The Dominos, and her fake last name references Bob Dylan. See more »

Goofs

The Manchester CID claim to have no knowledge of heroin. But by the mid 1970s, heroin (stolen from doctor's surgeries and chemists, as it was still being prescribed) was a known drug in the jazz and rock scene. There were private clinics dealing with addicts, and while it wasn't as huge in 1973 (when the episode is set) as it was in 1979 (when use in the punk scene escalated), the Manchester CID should have been completely briefed and known about heroin.

Gene Hunt: No, that's a drip from my fried egg butty, love. Well done, Miss Marple. That's why we need women detectives.
