  • Carole Boyd as Sara Clifton, Mrs. Goggins, Dorothy Thompson, Mrs. Pottage, Katy and Tom Pottage, Doctor Gilbertson and Miss Hubbard


  • Mrs. Pottage some how manages to get back to Greendale Farm instantly.
  • Mr. Pringle and Peter Fogg should know they can not move Ted's lorry without his keys.
  • If Ted had asked Pat to look after the lorry he should have left him the keys or even a spare set so then someone could have got Pat to come and move it or left the lorry at Pat's house rather than in the middle of the village.
  • Peter Fogg should have known where Ted was, as Ted mentions he had Peter lined up to give him a lift to Pencaster Station.
