  • This is the last episode where the first title sequence was used before being replaced by the new "jazzy theme" title sequence. It is referred as the "jazzy theme" for its saxophone beats. The reason behind the first sequence being replaced was the decision that the sequences needed more of an interesting pattern rather than a plain black and white aerial photograph of the East End of London.
  • Radio Times synopsis: Pauline has a showdown with Mandy over Aidan and Frank tries to help Pat face going to Court. Arthur has to make a difficult phone call while Sharon has to accept Phil's plans.
