Unlike the previous series the production and broadcast orders are quite similar, even though there is no serial content to encourage this as with Series 4. 

The first series screened wholly in colour and the last set completely in Windsor. Broadcast times are Wednesday evenings from 9.00 to 10.00 pm. The episodes have never reappeared on terrestrial television but they were all aired by UK Gold from November 1995 to Spring 1996. TV Times listings are provided for three of the later outings.
