Aye that was the worse thing about series 3 for me - when they kept showing next week clips on the end of the episode. I was furious. Love to kna what the thinking was behind that. Bloody BBC! Typical! Not happy! It's not right! I'd might of bloody known. It's not funny!

They were desperate for people to keep watching.

Why? Did they have no confidence in the series? Why commision another series if they were worried? Seems bloody daft.

My remark was a guess rather than a statement of fact. I can only see one reason for teasing next week's show and that's to encourage as many people to 'tune in next week' as possible.

Interesting that they dropped the idea for series 4. That and the (IMO) superior theme music is one of the reasons series 4 has a much slicker and classier feel to it.

I think putting clips at the end and beginning was very American.
I feel the whole feel of the show had many American tweaks in it....

Mebbes the BBC wanted to sell the series to America.

Was it ever shown across the pond?

I remember reading a review of the DVD containing the last two specials on Amazon UK in where one fan in the States said the characters were like a part of the family now, so who knows.
GET BAAAAAAAACK!

It was huge in Scandinavia, and we have a lot of followers on Facebook and Twitter from Finland.
