  • This and the previous episode feature the first foreign location filming to be conducted for the programme. There were two main sites used in Majorca: the hotel scenes were filmed at the Ola Hotel Bermudas, Calle de Pinzones, 20, Palma Nova (the latter place-name being specifically mentioned by Bet Lynch in the previous episode) and the scene with Hilda Ogden and Emily Bishop taking the photograph of the donkey was shot outside the Luxor Supermarket at Passeig Mar, 44, again in Palma Nova. The bar terrace scenes with Bet Lynch and Martin Barrett were filmed further up the coast at the western end of the island around the resort of Camp De Mar. The terrace is located at the Playa Hotel, Avda. de la Playa, 1. The wooden causeway to the small island which can be seen in the footage over which the end credits run still exists.
  • Writer Adele Rose travelled with the crew on location in case last-minute rewrites were necessary. Quentin Lawrence directed these film sequences while back in Manchester Nick Burrell-Davis rehearsed and directed the studio sequences.
  • TV Times synopsis: Will Bet take up the invitation to stay on in Majorca?
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 7,050,000 homes (6th place).
