Julian Sands was chosen for the title role but was delayed on another movie, Siesta. Wilby had previously been passed over for a smaller role because it was felt his height and blond hair were too close to Sands's appearance.


Lady at Cricket Match: Captain has put himself into bat first. Clive Durham would've never done that.
Maurice Hall: He is our best man apparently.


In the first scene Mr. Ducie's Latin is incorrect. "Membrum virilis" should be "membrum virile," a Latin neuter.
