Regular castEdit

Guest castEdit


  • First appearance of Dennis Tanner since 7th March 1962. Writer Jack Rosenthal was so fond of writing for the character that he confessed to shedding a tear as he first typed the words "Enter Dennis" in the script for this episode.
  • TV Times synopsis: In which Elsie has a surprise, and wishes she had not
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 6,224,000 homes (4th place). This somewhat low figure in comparison to surrounding episodes is explained by this edition being transmitted on Easter Monday - a public holiday.
