Trivia

In a radio interview broadcast 20th May 2013 on BBC Radio 2 in the United Kingdon, Samantha Bond described some of the behind-the-screens tensions during the making of this film. She stated that Burt Reynolds' 'high maintenance' behavior on set bore some resemblance to the actions of his character. This behaviour, Bond stated, included locking himself in his trailer and having to be coaxed out by the director or producer, not making much of an effort to mix with or get to know many of the rest of the cast (Samantha Bond excepted) and not learning his lines.

Midsomer murders without a body~
24 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My wife hit it on the head by saying it was really a TV film and like Midsomer Murders without the Murders!

That's all I really wanted to say except that the performances were generally good and Burt Reynolds wig was excellent and looked almost real. I'm now trying to make this up to ten lines but don't really have that much to say and wish that short, pertinent comments were allowed. Oh I've just remembered that Suffolk suddenly had hills, moved presumably from the Isle of Man so that the film had a tax subsidy. I'm really struggling now to say anything else but I would like these comments to be seen by filmgoers. Phew
