Speaking about working with Eddie Izzard, James Nesbitt previously told Netflix: "I’ve known Eddie for a bit but we’d never got to work together.

"We really hit it off. I had a really great time with her. She made me laugh a lot but was also very professional and really detailed.

"I just think the casting has been really quite smart on this show. That’s something I won’t forget, working with Eddie. She was extremely funny."
