Alternate Versions

UK DVD releases from Season 2 onwards are struck from edited international episode masters (allowing for commercials to be added for overseas broadcasts). The full uncut versions were originally broadcast on BBC One, without commercials. However, certain US DVD season releases (e.g. Season 3) contain the full uncut episodes. See more »

Decent but Dark
12 July 2018 | by vintagegeekSee all my reviews

We enjoyed the story lines for awhile. But the show is so dark (literally and story) you strain to watch the screen. The characters play well together which provides much of the humor too. After Series 1 the change from 90 minutes per episode to 55 minutes. This was absolutely a plus.
