  • This episode was intended to be Episode 18, but Simon Martin instead filmed The Last Run to make a proper closure to the series before the relaunch.
  • Simon Martin explained in a response to a YouTube user that while the episode hadn't been filmed, it still exists as a script and may be used at some point during the relaunched series.
  • This episode was due to mark Clan Stewart's first speaking role.
  • Should the episode would have aired, then a further 12 episodes will be made and the series would have reached 30 episodes.
