Background

Originally, most ITV regions networked the episodes on Sunday afternoons. In November, several ITV companies moved the series to a Saturday morning timeslot. The last two episodes, “A Christmas Miracle” and “To Catch a Tiger”, were broadcast across the network on Saturday mornings. TVS followed the network pattern until November, when it moved episodes to Thursdays. In some weeks, LWT were unable to broadcast episodes but made up for it by broadcasting double episodes in other weeks. Granada Television held back the series by two weeks and completed its run on 21 January 1984. Tyne Tees Television held back the series for over a month and moved the series to Thursdays, completing its run on 16 February 1984.
