It took a bit of research to find out what the police training facilities are called in the UK. I didn't want to use "Police Academy" if that wasn't the authentic British term, and indeed it isn't. It seems these places in the UK are simply called National Police Training Centres.

2016-11-09 Rerun commentary: Dr No's lines here are almost quoted verbatim from the film. For some reason I used the word "overestimated" instead of "misjudged", which is what he uses in the film. The only reason I can think of for doing this was that I recalled the quote from memory when writing the strip and got it wrong, rather than looking it up.

Quite embarrassing, really.
