Trivia

Unlike most episodes of the series, the main plot of this episode was a dramatic invention: no evidence exists that the real Prince Philip was fixated on the moon landing. According to royal historian Sally Bedell Smith, "The idea that he was obsessed with them and had a midlife crisis over not being on the Moon is really preposterous". See more »

Goofs

This episode takes place during the moon landings, in July of 1969. In one scene, kids can be seen bouncing through the room on orange space hoppers. Space hoppers were invented in 1971. See more »

A jewel in an average season
19 December 2019 | by shaun-352See all my reviews

Season 3 has been pretty uneventful but this episode was outstanding from start to finish - impeccably portrayed and so poignant that I turned to my girlfriend at the end and said - that's why I feel the way I feel - and I'm sure I wasn't alone.
