[show]Between takes, the cast (particularly David Jason) and crew were forever playing pranks on John Lyons (DS George Toolan). They devised fake scripts which Lyons had to learn at short notice, involving ludicrous situations for Toolan: on one occasion, they made his character wear a neck brace; on another, they made him ferret around in a smelly rubbish bin looking for evidence.

- The series originally ended in 1997, but was later revived until 2010.
