Trivia / The Thin Blue Line

  • British Brevity: Only two series of 7 episodes each were made.
  • Dawson Casting: Inspector Fowler is clearly written as an older man completely out of touch with modern-day culture and attitudes, however Rowan Atkinson was only 39 when the show went into production - only 13 years older in fact than James Dreyfus, who played Goody.
  • Similarly Named Works: The show is not to be confused with a 1988 documentary film by Errol Morris about a man falsely convicted and sentenced to death for murder.
