Cabala, Dr. Cassandra’s husband (or an aid in crime) was really Ida Lupino’s husband is real life, well for a while they got divorced (1951-1984) and had one child, called Bridget Duff.

The producers ran over budget for this episode #119 (Dr. Cassandra only appeared in one episode), they couldn’t afford to take the two days necessary to block and shoot the fight scenes, so instead they shot the fight scene in the dark with the “POWS ZAPS” over darkness!

Ida was born in London to a showbusiness family.
