Trivia: The famous scene that caused controversy, where Ken grabs Deirdre by the neck after finding out about her and Mike, wasn't in the script, it was an improvisation.

The director told him to do what he thought Ken's reaction would be, and therefore Ken grabbed Deirdre's throat and slammed her against a wall.

Trivia: Although they play mother and daughter, Sue Nicholls is only seven years older than Helen Worth.

Trivia: The show was originally planned to be a 16 part drama.
