  • Although then BBC controller Jane Root is on record as saying she would allow no more episodes to be made and would permit repeat screenings only over my dead body. Something of a hate figure among Goodies afficionados, fans are patiently waiting for news of her funeral.

Root was BBC 2 controller between 1999 and 2004. While she did make the statement about repeats of The Goodies, it seems a bit harsh to blame her for the series being cancelled in 1980.
