Original airdates[edit]

I believe that the UK and US airdates are incorrect. This episode must have been broadcast in the UK on December 3rd 1967 (a Sunday) to fit the chronology of the preceding and following episodes. I understand that the series in whole was not broadcast in the US until the summer of 1968?

Citation links[edit]

The links of the two reference citations to the White & Ali book on the series lead merely to this very article. I looked at the links in edit mode and can't make out the intent. Can somebody please fix these? --Tbrittreid (talk) 23:51, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

It's way too late here for me to sort this out; {{Harvnb}} seems to do this whether you want it to or not. Tomorrow, perhaps. Rodhullandemu 00:01, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, I don't know what Harvard has to do with it anyway. It appears to be essentially a British book, the American edition (by Warner Books) of which happened to be released first. --Tbrittreid (talk) 00:08, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Dur. {{Harvnb}} is a common style of citing references in books. Nothing to do with where any particular book is published. Perhaps you need sleep as much as I do, and due to vandals and other interruptions, I'm only about three hours behind schedule for today. Look at the template, please. Rodhullandemu 00:14, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
I can't make much out of the template, I've never heard of it before, the links in those cites don't work in a relevant or helpful manner, and—despite the displayed time—here in the USA it's early evening so I'm not sleepy. --Tbrittreid (talk) 23:26, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

The title pun[edit]

The article keeps elabatoring in great length a connection between the title and the chessgame, the villagers set against each other without even mentioning the obvious, peer pressure = check mates, the queen in particular as No 6´s check mate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.35.51.108 (talk) 17:59, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
