The show's working title was "Crazy", and the original concept was to have Chris Langham's therapist talking to various celebrity clients. Langham disliked the idea, and suggested that Paul Whitehouse play all the client roles - even though the two had never worked together, or even met. See more »
It is extremely unlikely that the BBC will be brave enough to sanction a DVD release of this series. Since Chris Langham was convicted of an offence and subsequently imprisoned a few years back he has been virtually written out of entertainment history. This is sad on so many counts as this was a well written, finely performed and beautifully observed series. Paul Whitehouse's performances were a bit of a revelation given that previously his forte was in sketch shows presenting cartoon characters delivering catch-phrases and little else. Here he acts convincingly in a variety of roles, often with depth and humanity. It is likely that this worked so well because he was pitted against Langham's deadpan, lugubrious and quizzical re-acting.
