* BritishAccents: Being a British comedy show, many. Panelists occasionally attempt accents other than their own (most often Scottish, for some reason), which on one occasion led to Jeremy dubbing Andy Hamilton "[[ManOfAThousandVoices The man of ... a voice]]".



* HeyItsThatVoice: News clippings are read by BBC radio continuity and news announcers, who are also called in to rescue Sandi when she is required to read a complicated or foreign-language word. Lampshaded when Charlotte Green (a Radio 4 continuity announcer and news reader known for her attractive voice) is asked to read the dirtiest DoubleEntendre cuttings.
