One of the show's most unique features is the characters' voices talking over the end credits. It was discontinued after Season 2 because 'Steven Moffatt' felt it wasn't working as well as it did in Season 1. Also, the actors grew fed up of showing up for the recordings because it meant they had to come in on the weekend. See more »

Oh, God, why did I write that. No-one will read any further; people make similar claims so freely about any old rubbish. -But in this case it's TRUE, dammit.
Hilariously funny in every episode, seriously emotional in some, tautly dramatic in most, with great performances from a very young cast (Julia Sawalha is more famous for other shows, but she has never had a better role)... look, trust me, everyone who has watched this show loves it. It represents the triumph of the script by an individual (Steven Moffat) over the script by committee.
