Trivia

  • All ten episodes of the first series were edited together for the DVD release, which also included the option to view each episode separately as originally shown.
  • The first series was originally shown as 10 episodes, each lasting 10 minutes. It was later repeated with three episodes edited together to create three standard half-hour episodes. The one that wasn’t able to be included was episode 7, “The Monkeys”, which was chosen because it was written purely for comedic purposes rather than advancing the plot.
  • The series were written by Brydon and Hugo Blick, and produced and directed by Blick. The associate producer was Steve Coogan.
  • The script is written in such a way that the viewer can pick up on clues that Keith has not himself realised.
