- California Doubling: Set in 1950s Paris, but had to be shot in Budapest because of how the real Paris had developed in the years since. The 1992 series starring Michael Gambon as Maigret did the same.
- Playing Against Type: Rowan Atkinson is mostly known for his rubber-faced comedic roles. He went completely "straight" to play an entirely dramatic character in Maigret and what little humor there is is entirely deadpan.
