This episode caused trouble for Granada as a law at that time forbade mention of individual members of the Royal Family in drama presentations and questions were supposedly asked in the House of Commons. The Postmaster-General contacted Granada and told them to drop all references from future scripts but no further action was taken. After this other programmes began to mention the Royal Family (most notably, That Was The Week That Was and Till Death Us Do Part) and the law fell into disuse.
