The first 2 seasons do not contain a laughter track, the third one does, something which disappointed many of the show's fans as it undermined its naturalistic feel. See more »

Det. Insp. Beach:
I'm not remotely interested in your drugs bust. What I want to know is... how long have we got until the full dress rehersal?

I loved this show! It was unbelievably funny in the first series, so much so my brother and I would literally be crying and rewinding the tape to see it again! I just had one point that I couldn't get over. I know why it was done (some people actually thought this was a real documentary of the police force, apparently) but the laughter track ruined the second series for me. I tried to watch regardless but it was too much. Again loved the show, couldn't stand the laughter track. I thought the whole point was to portray it as real, that was part of the joke?... Such a shame for the creators - so talented - but I hope they release it without the laughter track...
