CGiii Comment

Only shown in Scotland - because, only Glaswegians can understand their own accents.

The acting is frightening...

For a show that has run for nearly 2 decades, the viewing figures are consistently dismal. Any other show with these statistics would be cancelled...that's BBC Scotland for you!

Over 700 episodes...!!!
