Trivia

During the pub quiz in The Golden Lion several of the actual Fishermen's Friends can be seen in the opposing team. See more »

Goofs

After the quiz night, Danny asks her "Who was the first artist to have a posthumous #1 in the UK?" , she answers straight away - "Otis Redding - sitting on the dock of the bay, in 1968". Well, this is wrong, Otis wasn't the first, second or indeed third. The first one was Buddy Holly - It doesn't matter anymore (1959), second was Eddie Cochrane - Three steps to heaven (1960), third was Jim Reeves - Distant drums (1965). See more »

Quotes

Danny: No, I'm not here to hurt anyone, Jim.
