In the UK, the show was broadcast on BBC 2. The BBC does not run commercials during programming. Because of this, the episodes do not run in "real time". To account for this, every episode cuts out the opening line, "Events occur in real time". See more »
Binged watched over a few weeks. Story plots were formula for each season, acting was not great, which probably was the director's fault as some of these actors have done much better. There were quite a few goofs within the show but a weekly series must be hard to produce.
All in all an enjoyable show to watch.
