- This episode introduces SYLVIA 1 to the series.
- Going by production order, this is the third episode of the fourth season.
- A reference to Postman Pat and the Greendale Rocket is made.
- The water that splashes over P.C. Selby is actually cling film.
- Doctor Gilbertson was talking as if she had never had a car before, even though in The Sheep in the Clover Field, she admitted to having one which was being serviced.
- When Ted shows Pat the car, he is suddenly wearing a scarf for some unknown reason.
- Lucy, Julian and Sarah's lips do not move when they laugh at Sarah's first line in their song.
- When Lucy says "It just needs something at the end to finish it off." you can see a sudden end in her wrist.
- Despite his cold which Doctor Gilbertson mentioned earlier on in the episode, Alf is still able to help out with the tea party on the Green.
- When Ajay and Ted arrive at the party with the car, Sara, Dorothy and Meera have dissappeared from the celebrations.
