    Pat Roach developed throat cancer before the filming of series three began. Although he would appear in series' three and four, he was undergoing chemotherapy at the same time. In the third series, it's painfully obvious that Pat was ill, and some scenes of his had to be changed to accommodate his medical condition. Although he felt fit enough to appear in series four, his family were angry at him because of the physical toll it was taking out on his well-being. Pat was too ill to appear in what would be the last Auf Wiedersehen Pet series ("The Specials") in 2004. He sadly died during filming of that two-hour special. In a touching scene, Dennis reads a letter from Bomber to the rest of the group while they are all dining in a restaurant, where he explains his reasons for not having joined them. The group lift their glasses and drink a toast; "To Bomber!"

    During filming at the house being used as Thornley Manor, a member of the television crew named Colin was pushing some heavy equipment over some undergrowth and had a narrow escape. The ground collapsed beneath him, giving way to an old, and previously unknown well. To this day, the owners of the house refer to it as "Colin's well", although for safety reasons, Central TV (now Carlton) had it professionally sealed off and covered.

    There was no love lost between executive producer Allan McKeown and Jimmy Nail. McKeown said that Nail was a 'nightmare' to work with during the second series. McKeown said that Nail suddenly thought he knew everything there is to know about filming and would often demand his lines be changed and would tell the director how to film a scene. McKeown confessed that during the filming of the second series, he thought Jimmy Nail was an "a***hole". The pair haven't spoken to each other since 1985.
