Andrew Davies originally wanted to film the series at the University of Warwick, Coventry (UK). The University were unhappy as to how they would be portrayed. Instead, the exterior shots were all done at either Keele or Birmingham University. See more »
It is many years now since I saw this series, but I vividly and fondly remember David Troughton's performance as Bob Buzzard. Staggeringly selfish and self centred, he dominated the series. I loved him. One would expect no less from David Troughton, of course. Bob is up there with the other great TV monsters, Alan Partridge and David Brent.
It is bizarre that the series has never been repeated, nor, so far as I know, released on video. Any explanations?
