Angus McKay did not play the pawnshop proprietor. He played the rather posh Club Secretary. The fence/proprietor was played by George Moon.

The director of this episode was Douglas Camfield, and present are actors with whom he had worked before as Production Assistant at the BBC (e.g. Roger Avon, who had played Saphadin in Doctor Who on which Camfield had worked in 1965).

Camfield had also directed the only previous episode of Special Branch to feature Patrick Mower, who returns here as a "guest" but clearly provides the energy for the series as the maverick, arrogant newcomer - as Derren Nesbitt had for the previous two seasons as Inspector Jordan.
