HAMMER SEASON TWO - EPISODE 31
Trivia: This episode featured a distinguished guest cast with the star of Harold & Maude Bud Cort playing a producer as well as Bernie (Seigfried) Kopell amongst the actors involved.
A joke about the then recent Dolorean divorce was nipped by network censors, who forced the reference be changed to Dokerean and ruined the gag.
Alan Spencer intended this episode as a tribute to legendary film actor Bela Lugosi, best known for his iconic portrayal of Dracula. (Years later, director Tim Burton and actor Martin Landau paid Lugosi tribute in their film Ed Wood, with Landau winning a well-deserved best supporting actor Oscar for his amazing turn as the film star.)
Cast, crew, network executives and viewers all wondered whom the mysterious Mr. Blasko was when the episodes closing dedication appeared. Astute film buffs caught the reference: Blasko was Bela Lugosis real last name.
