DVD release

A Region 2 DVD release of the show, which features interviews with Morse, Damon and Schell, is available from Network DVD. Barry refused to be interviewed, and other cast members accused him of being "short-tempered" and "egomaniacal". Morse nicely sums up the series in the DVD extras: "It wasn't the worst show ever made, but it certainly wasn't the best!"
