Trivia

The mystery disease that Arthur claimed Terry was suffering from was originally scripted as the very rare but real affliction of Huntingdon's Chorea. However, after complaints from viewers, this was changed to the fictional 'Spotter Syndrome'. You can see the edit was dubbed on post production as we only hear Arthur say it off screen. See more »
