[show]Brian Wilde much preferred working with Director Sydney Lotterby ( who had directed Wilde in Porridge) rather than Alan J.W. Bell due to the difference in directing and visual styles of the two men. Bell liked to shoot in a more cinematic way often using long distance wide shots of the Yorkshire landscape and hills with the actors walking through them playing the scene. Inevitably this meant scenes took a lot longer to set-up ,co-ordinate and shoot much to Wilde's and some other cast member's frustration whereas Lotterby tended to keep things much tighter visually, like a traditional sitcom and worked more quickly.
- In " The 30's Car" Clegg is reading a Holmfirth newspaper which is from the filming location as compared to the show being set in Yorkshire.
- This pilot episode was originally shown as an episode of Comedy Playhouse (UK), a series of self-contained situation comedy plays.
