Show boss Iain MacLeod recently teased the episode as being one of the weirdest he had ever done.

He said told The Sun Online: “It’s kind of a Robron single-strander which is probably the weirdest episode we’ve ever done and given that we’ve done some pretty weird episodes before that’s saying something.

“It’s really kind of out there and kind of the episode I’ve been most nervous about since I started just because of how crackers it is really.

“I think it’s really entertaining and dramatic. It’s got a surprise cameo on it. It’s stylistically a bit weird and romantic.”
