Trivia / Between the Lines

The comic strip:

The TV series:

  • Enforced Method Acting: Scenes in the third season with regulars going undercover as neo-Nazis were covertly filmed at a real far-right-wing political gathering in Belgium. The fairly-left-wing actors' fear and discomfort weren't wholly simulated.
  • Fan Nickname: The show was named "Between the Loins" or "Between the Sheets", due to some sex scenes that at the time were a bit more explicit than usual in the genre.
  • Franchise Zombie: Tony Garnett subsequently said that he hadn't wanted to do the third season but was pressured into it by the BBC.
