Laurie released a TNA soundtrack a couple of years back, but there wasn't anywhere near 650 pieces of music on it. I think a lot of tracks may not exist anymore, sadly.

Must have been comfy driving for Jo in her TNA days. She was either pushed in the back of Steed's car (like ''a nodding dog'') or she had someone lying on the floor of her car whilst driving. It must have been a relief when they were shooting AbFab, as Jennifer did all the driving for that series.
I have to say - I never once noticed Gambit had two cars instead of just the one Jaguar. I'm not a huge car-fanatic so I don't usually pay attention to them anyway, but it's pretty sad that British Leyland gave one of the most successful British series of that time such lousy stuff.
I always wondered why Purdey was stuck either in the back of Steed's car, or, more commonly, chauffeured around by Gambit--a lot Purdey/Gambit dialogue scenes are while they're driving--and now I know it's because British Leyland took the car away in-between, and didn't always have it when they needed it back, so not much driving for Purdey. British Leyland really screwed around with the cars, from the faulty Jags to no MGB, which was sad, because they only went with them to try and be loyal to Britain. I never noticed the difference between the two Jags, either--they were exactly the same model, identical in every way, except for the dent, which I've never been able to spot. I've always loved Gambit's car, though--I like Jaguars overall, but even if it didn't work, it looked lovely onscreen.
