The tile-effect floor needs a protective coat of varnish...


Tricked into bogus 'negotiations' by Knox, Jimmy Garland is set-upon by his henchman and knocked unconscious

Where are we?: Tricked into bogus 'negotiations' by Knox, Jimmy Garland is set-upon by his henchman and knocked unconscious. With Abby expelled from the estate, Garland is brought round by a bucket of cold water in the face, and dragged to a chair for interrogation.

What's the goof?: As the limp body of Richard Heffer is dragged past the foot of the stairs, his dead weight is enough to ensure that his boots rub off the 'tiles' painted - with meticulous care - onto the studio floor of the Waterhouse set.
