"Who's Who???" was not clever scriptwriter Philip Levene's only acting appearance. In the third episode of Quatermass II, "The Food" (BBC, 1955), when Quatermass and aides break into the mysterious factory, he could be spotted as a hypnotized supervisor, under alien control like the rest of the workforce.

For the record, the prolific Levene penned 19 Avengers stories in all, second only to Brian Clemens. Film screenplay credits include Deadly Strangers and Diagnosis: Murder, both 1974 and both directed by Avengers veteran Sidney Hayers.

Levene was born 9 June 1926 in London, and died 25 March 1973.
