Regular cast

Guest cast


  • First appearance of Lucille Hewitt.
  • The character of Miss Nugent appears in this episode as a walk-on part but the un-named actress is not Eileen Derbyshire, who would debut in Episode 15.
  • To help viewers remember which characters live in which houses, the end credits of this episode are shown against a backdrop of an image of the Street, which pans from the Corner Shop to the Glad Tidings Mission Hall, with the credits of the particular actors displayed when their character's house is on screen. In an error, the Mission Hall is shown to be adjacent to the Rovers Return Inn, even though it had been established in Episode 1 that it was across the Street.
