Episode Goofs
In the scene when Oz asks Bomber if he is interested in his porn deal, just before Bomber gets his foot broken, he tells Oz he has five kids. In Another Country, Bomber tells Lainie (the native American girl) when she asks if he has any family, that he has four children. Is not likely that any of the kids have died as he has just told her his wife had died and would probably have mentioned the loss of a child as well

Hedley is offended at being branded a Geordie, retorting that he is from Darlington. Despite this, the actor playing him, Des Young, did so with a pure Newcastle accent, not the softer Darlington one.

When Neville and Dennis are in the hospital talking to Hedley, he shows the pair a photograph of his wife, Neville takes a look and hands the picture back to Hedley, however, when the shot changes, Neville still has the picture in his hand.
