Did You Know?


When filming the crew wanted to use a Citroen 2CV as a mobile rig to hold a camera while filming some moving shots. This was needed because most filming was done on Sark where the roads are not metalled. However motor cars are not allowed on Sark so they had to remove the engine from the car to be allowed to use it. They then had to tow the Citroen behind a tractor (Tractors are allowed on Sark).

Unforgettable. Some shows stick in the soul. This is one of those..
21 October 2004 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Derek Jacobi is superb as the unforgettable Mr Pye. The island setting is equally unforgettable. Brilliant from first to last. Mr Pye's battle with his angelic self, his attempts to overcome what at first he sees as an unfortunate side-effect of it by becoming devilish, the wonderful denouement, and the quirky, Peake-ish scenes along the way live in the memory. I only wish the BBC would release the whole series on DVD. I would love to be able to see it again and again every so often. When it first screened, that evening was a definite 'do nothing else', just settle down and indulge the look forward impatiently till the next episode the following week. It was one of those shows that you wonder about before the first scenes roll, continue to wonder about as they do, then find yourself caught up in and immersed in.
