Trivia
'Bob Grant, playing bus conductor Jack, had actually worked in real life as a bus driver in order to pay his way through RADA (the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art). He mentions this in the TV interview he did on the Wogan show in 1990. The rest of the cast were also present talking about the planned new series which sadly never got made.
Share this
Michael Robbins (Arthur Rudge) left the series after season six to concentrate on his stage work again. The first episode of the final season is called "Olive's divorced", so Arthur and Olive finally get divorced.

The nick-name of Inspector Blake (Stephen Lewis) was "Blakey" but he was also nick-named at times "Hitler".
