A very rare instance of an episode being shown on BBC Two due to late change in listings because of the late finish of the men's final of the 2008 Wimbledon Championships. (The only other instance of the show being on BBC Two was late one night in 1996, when the first episode was shown as part of the 'Pilot Paradise' strand.)
This episode is unique in that it revolves almost entirely around PCs Cooper and Walsh, who are usually secondary characters. Clegg and Truly are barely seen in this episode.
In this episode, PC's Cooper and Walsh are finally given names after years of being referred to as "1st Policeman" and "2nd Policeman."
1.75 million viewers watched this episode.
Is Jeremy Quite Safe?
A retired jewel thief regales Marina and Miss Davenport with fanciful stories of his past exploits in the South of France. When Auntie Wainwright finds an old safe without a key, who better to open it?
Audience unknown. Episode shown at 5.05pm. This was probably the earliest start time for a first run episode of Last of the Summer Wine in the series entire run. The following repeat of Doctor Who failed to reach the top 70 programmes that week.
All That Glitters Is Not Elvis
When Alvin and Entwistle see Lance trying to convince his wife that Elvis is still alive, they feel a duty to help the King make an appearance.
Howard discovers there are better ways than the mobile phone to contact 'certain acquaintances', and quite openly, too - morris dancing bells. Elsewhere, Alvin and Entwistle have fun on rollerskates.
Of Passion And Pizza
Mervyn is deeply in love with 'Her' at the pizza take-away, but lacking the courage to tell her himself, he unfortunately makes the terrible mistake of letting Entwistle and Alvin try to bring them together.
Barbara Young makes a guest appearance as Florrie in this episode, before returning in series 30 as the regular character of Stella.
This episode marks the final appearance of Nora Batty due to Staff's Death. Actress Kathy Staff was unable to appear in Series 30 owing to ill-health, and died four months after this episode's broadcast.
This also marks the final episode to feature Clegg and Truly as part of the main trio due to insurance costs. They become secondary characters in Series 30 and Series 31.
From this episode till the end of the series, the programme is credited as BBC Productions.
Audience of 4.8m - 27th most watched programme of the week. A later time slot seems to have helped the ratings for this episode return to previous levels.
