Don't Wait Up trivia

Don't Wait Up was one of a number of BBC productions to be repeated by ITV3 in the mid 2000s, in this case from early 2006.

The series came to an end after six series only because writer George Layton wanted to bring more writers on board to pen the show; the BBC said no and insisted he should write them all, or none at all.
