  • On the day that this episode was broadcast, the BBC soap EastEnders debuted its third weekly episode. To act as a spoiler and dent the ratings, ITV transmitted this episode of Coronation Street at 7.20pm and then the James Bond film The Living Daylights started at 7.50pm, ten minutes before EastEnders began. The following week, ITV executives ordered two episodes to be edited together and therefore a one-hour episode of Coronation Street to be shown directly against its rival. ITV won the ratings battle on this occasion.
  • TV Times synopsis: Reg Holdsworth, man with a mission, hunts for Maud's will and makes a startling discovery.
