  • The first three episodes of Series 21 had already been partly filmed before Bill Owen's death. To make them complete for broadcast, scripts were re-worked, camera tricks and stock shots were used, and a body double was used for far off shots. Also Compo's appearances in each of those episodes were very brief.
  • Audience of 7.91m - 35th most watched programme of the week.
