Revealing mistake: During the riot scene, the canteen walls wobble. This is most noticeable when a prisoner is trying to pull the notice board off the wall.

Mistakes

Throughout the whole show Godber, 'Bunny' Warren, McLaren, the Prison Governor and many of the guards refer to Fletcher as a Cockney. He even identifies himself as a Cockney on a number of occasions. However, in several episodes he refers to his upbringing in Muswell Hill and in this episode he refers to his having been born there - and we see his old stamping ground in that episode when he gets a weekend's compassionate leave. Nobody from Muswell Hill would ever refer to himself as a Cockney - Muswell Hill isn't even in East London!

Trivia

There was an American version of this classic UK show. It was titled On the Rocks. The script was reworked in order to make the style of humour suit the audience. It lasted one series before being cancelled in May '76.
