    Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    During the credits, an interview on The Tonight Show is shown between Farmer and Jay Leno. Pictures play during the credits as well.

    Goofs: We know about 9 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Factual errors: During the West Virginia football game Ernie Davis gets hit out of bounds and is lying on the sideline. The football announcer states Davis is hurt lying PRONE (face down) on the field when in fact the scene shows him lying in a SUPINE (face up)position.

    Trivia: There are 4 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • It was intended that Chief Supt Strange played by James Grout would appear, either as the superintendent or at least in a transitional scene in a nursing home after his retirement, but Grout was too ill to work so the character of Strange was written out and Supt Innocent was created instead.
    • The title of the episode, as shown on scripts and call-sheets, was Reputation. However this episode title was not displayed on any credits or in any listings magazines or publicity material.
    • When Jessica Pollock is playing the trumpet, the music scholarship is funded by the Endeavour Award provided by an anonymous bequest. The secretary tells Lewis that the only stipulation the benefactor made was that the winner must “give solace to the soul with their playing”. It is obvious that the benefactor was none other than Morse.
