This is the final film Eric Morecambe made before he died in 1984. Like Ernie, he was reportedly unhappy with the finished result, as they had originally believed they were going to make an actual film, not a videotaped TV Movie.
The fictitious murder mystery novel read by Ernie is called "Passport to Death".
Night Train to Murder was the "deal" that took Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise from the BBC to Thames Television, "the channel on the other-side".
The final sequence of this film has Eric and Ernie walking off together which makes it their final screen image together.
