- Growing the Beard: From the 1995 series onwards it was seen as getting significantly better.
- Periphery Demographic: Watched by all ages, a la Doctor Who, despite intended audience being for adults.
- Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Some website and discussion sites were describing this show as "anvilicious" fairly recently about the episodes Safety Last (1995 episode), Tales of the Unexpected and Rust Buckets.
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The 1997 Extra-Long Episode Don't Look Back In Anger was billed as being about the history of policing and police cars through the ages, but it fell into becoming a Clip Show episode, which didn't please all of the audience. OK, so it's a documentary, but people felt it didn't live up to the billing in TV guides of the time, November 1997!
YMMV / Police, Camera, Action!
