- James Bolam, apparently, was more than happy to return as a ghost cameo for Amanda Redman's final episode.
- Despite leaving the series in 2012, Bolam is still in regular touch with his former co-workers as well as the cast that he never got a chance to work with - Denis Lawson, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Tamzin Outhwaite.
