The reliance of British television drama on London's West End theatre is testified to in the program notes that list Newton Blick (Sir Toby Belch) as currently performing at the Vaudeville theatre on the Strand in Salad Days. John Moffatt (Malvolio) and Maureen Quinney (Olivia) were also appearing simultaneously at the Adelphi in William Wycherley's Restoration comedy, The Country Wife
