Trivia
Although the character Stan Butler was supposed to be in his mid-thirties, Reg Varney was already 52 when the series began. Varney wore heavy make-up so that he would appear younger.

Due to a technicians' strike during season four, seven of the thirteen episodes were made in black and white rather than colour - "Christmas Duty", "The Anniversary", "Cover-Up", "Safety First", "The Lodger", "The Injury" and "Not Tonight". On some of these a voice is audible directing the audience's applause prior to the credits cutting off.

The TV series' two creators were both called Ronald - Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney. As there was a TV series on TV from 1971 starring Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker called The Two Ronnies (1971) - the pair were nick-named both this and "The Two Ronalds".
