Asked whether or not he was stunned when the present had ended, Jim admitted: “It caught me by surprise… Our job as actors is to do a job and move on… so I was used to that. But it came to the last day and it was New Year’s Eve in the show and we were singing Auld Lang Syne, and so there was a sentiment to the scene anyway. I felt as the older statesman that I should say a few words. I thanked everybody and I looked at the crew who had been with us for six years, and most of them all the way through the series, and I got quite a lump in my throat.”
