Look After Annie - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Watch closely during the 'Cowley and a woman' sequence: Bodie and Doyle are travelling in the Capri, but halfway through the scene, it cuts to a shot of a yellow Ford Granada - which gives away the fact the some of the footage was 'lifted' from the earlier episode 7 ("Close Quarters").

Trivia

This, the first ever episode of the series, was first broadcast on ITV on December 30th 1977. It was repeated on ITV in 1979. Some time after this, a cut was made, which has endured on all subsequent UK TV transmissions: Just prior to the title sequence, we see Nesbitt hand Susan some drugs. In the original broadcast we then see Susan tightening her belt around her arm. Using Nesbitt's cigarette lighter to sterilise a needle, she then "shoots up" (injects the drugs in her arm). The excision may have come about because of a tightening up of censorship rules by the Independent Broadcasting Authority about the explicit use of illegal drugs on TV. However, the missing segment has been restored for the 2002 DVD release.
