Yes, I certainly think you're correct here Daniel. I just think that for many of us frustrated with series 8's direction it would have been nice to hear the cast at least acknowledge where the show went wrong or wasn't so brilliant, if only to offer hope to the viewer that we won't be in for a repeat. There is a notable point in the commentary where one of the cast talks about 8 being some of the best Dwarf ever and you can hear that Norman is a little taken aback by this claim and utters something along the lines of "really...you really think this is as good". Sadly no response or attempt to discuss it more clearly is given. Norman just goes quiet for a bit and then starts to apologise but is cut-off...most likely by another hilarious joke about "ham salad".
