Trivia

In The Cult of...: Bergerac (2008), Louise Jameson (Susan Young) described what a perfect gentleman John Nettles (Jim Bergerac) was. They had to do a love scene in bed in which the camera started at their entwined feet and tracked up over the duvet to their faces as they shared some pillow talk. During rehearsals, John's trouser legs could be seen at the bottom of the duvet, so he offered to roll them up. Louise said she didn't mind if he took them off altogether, but he replied "If I get excited, I'm embarrassed. If I don't, you're insulted. So let's just keep it a secret." See more »

User Reviews

The watchability of this show
7 August 2002 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Bergerac is one of the few shows which, on many occasions, had unique plots or plots that had unique twists. It resisted the temptation to jump on any particular bandwagon. The 'hero', Bergerac, was neither hero nor the still-popular anti-hero. The writers often back-referenced with regard to the ongoing arc which took Bergerac from recovering alcoholic to lucky in love, unlucky in love, lucky in his job, unlucky in his job, and eventually back to the bottle again, without twisting him out of character to do it.

In my opinion, this show still stands the test of time and is more watchable than too many of the newer shows on TV today.
