Only a Story - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Margaret is about to confront Victor with the truth about his reflexology, in the first shot that pans over to Margaret on the very left of the screen, a hand appears and pulls the door back. It can't be Jean as we see her leaving the room to go upstairs a few shots earlier.

Trivia

The Christmas Special that aired in 1995, was initially intended as the series' finale, and would have seen Victor being killed while saving Margaret who was being attacked by a madman. The 1997 special was then intended to end the series with Margaret dying from a heart attack brought on from the strain of Victor's misadventures, but on both occasions the production crew got cold feet. It wasn't until the final series in 2000 that the team, in David Renwick's words, "plucked up the courage to kill Victor."
