In "Cold Fusion", when Spence examines the signing-in book to the building in which the CCU are housed, two of the names shown in the book are Simon Le Bon (famous as a member of Duran Duran) and Bob Carolgees (famous for his comedy act with Spit the Dog). The latter is shown as visiting Superted at the Great Big Gay Bear Company. See more »
In series 5, episode 1, the date on the CCTV camera shows "12 Sept 2005", but the CCTV shots from episode 2 show "15 Jan 2005", even though the plot leads us to believe the two episodes are chronological. See more »
No spoilers here but I have been a fan since Waking the Dead started but the last series, of which only 3 have been on so far is awful. The stories bear no resemblance to the original idea of the series. I found these 3 in the last series jaw droppingly ludicrous. As a BBC licence payer, after the show I rang BBC complaints to pass on my disappointment. I'm amazed that actors of the calibre of Trevor Eve and Sue Johnstone didn't object to the story lines. These actors have been with these characters for 8 seasons, surly they can see it's lost all direction. It's a good job it is the last series or the next series may start with the team investigating the death of Father Christmas!
