Labbett's phone box

Clerkenwell Close, EC1
Vic Labbett's phone box is in Clerkenwell Close, just up the street from where Vane is. This phone box was probably a prop, as it's so close to the two on Clerkenwell Green, plus it's right next to someone's front door!

Field at Burt Simmond's Farm, Ottershaw

Fairoaks Airfield, Ottershaw, near Addlestone, GU21
The car chase scene at end of the episode (supposedly at a farm) was filmed at Fairoaks Airfield and along the old 'tank track', bordering what was Ottershaw School in the 70's. Ottershaw School is now closed and has been converted into luxury flats called 'The Mansion'. The scene was filmed in the area south of The Mansion building, in the area at the end of the grass runway. The culmination of the chase is filmed on the 'tank track' (so called because Ottershaw Park was used to store military vehicles in preperation for the D-Day landings of WW2). The tank track is in the area between Samsons Wood and Long Copse on the appropriate Streetmap.co.uk page.
