When ITV wanted to repeat the programme some years after it was originally shown, all the cast gave their permission with the exception of 'David Jason' who vetoed the plan on the grounds that "he looked raw in those days and he was not anxious to share that with his public", thus denying other cast members of much-needed repeat fees.

this comedy is the very best tv-series i´ve ever watched. a smal and stupid secret service agent solves difficult problems wihout logic. he himself even doesen´t understand anything about the problems. the dialogues are fantastic and david jason (alias edgar briggs) is brilliant. the other actors fit in very well and so the whole series is full with slapstick, noise and surprise. 13 top- episodes are edited. i hope it will be available on video or dvd soon.
