Trivia

  • Thie first series started being broadcast at 23:00 on 19980813, then it was suddenly moved to the 18:30 slot with a repeat on sunday lunch-time.
  • So although it looks like there's a gap there isn't really.
  • But still confusion reigns about how many series there were.
  • Each episode follows the same path - Milton is about to die, often in a bizarre circumstance, and is visted by an angel who goes over his life and how his career choice lead him to this situation.
  • I use the prospective death as the title, and one day I'll get around to using the exact description as spoken in the programme; some other listings may use the career, but that's not as accurate.
  • Some episodes are in the BBC7 Comedy Catch-up\ slot, so difficult to match to the originals.
