Series 6 was scheduled to begin filming in 2003, but Nick Wilson, of Channel 5, and Raymond Thompson felt that “although the show was still performing well, the cast was getting too old and the series was beginning to stretch the core proposition.” They felt the characters were not kids fending for themselves without adults any more.
