Trivia

The BBC had originally planned on airing the show during a late-evening slot on Fridays, but they felt that it would be inappropriate to screen a political satire during the Iraq War. Instead of shelving it, however, they scheduled it to run as part of the late-afternoon CBBC line-up, as the satirical elements of the show would have less chance of being picked up on in the context of a children's programme.

User Reviews

 
Poor, even for BBC sitcom standards
16 August 2019 | by studioATSee all my reviews

This is a largely forgotten BBC sitcom, and quite rightly so.

It doesn't seem to know whether it's a CBBC sitcom, an adult one, or a satire of the Blair government, which basically means it ends up being none of them.

There's a reason this isn't repeated.
