** There is the occasional shout to DadsArmy. Whenever there is a scene set in a church or cathedral, there is a Verger who sounds exactly like the Verger from DadsArmy.

There have been nine CD releases so far, and three short episodes for free download from the Bafflegab website. They star Series/DoctorWho regulars Terry "Davros" Molloy as Dunning and the late Creator/NicholasCourtney, AKA TheBrigadier as Lionheart. In the sixth release, following Courtney's sad death, a new character, Harry "Thumper" Crow was introduced, played by Creator/DavidWarner. Other characters have included an exceptionally camp Creator/AleisterCrowley, a Great Old One, and rubbish explorer Sir Basil Champion, whilst guest stars such as Leslie Phillips, Nigel Havers and BrianBlessed have popped up.

* AsYouKnow: In ''The King of Winter'', the radio commentator describing a theatrical production featuring [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfWindsor Prince George, Duke of Kent]] mentions that it is being attended by King George VI. The commentator takes great pains to point out that the two men are brothers, despite both being called George, and that it is the Duke's real name, but only the King's regal name, as he was christened Albert. Any radio audience of the 1930s would probably be aware of this, but in 2014 it would seem a little odd, hence the explanation.

* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: Happens offstage with the coronation of [[TheHouseOfWindsor George VI]]. The Archbishop walks off to it and all that is heard is a door opening and "Zadok the Priest" at full volume.

* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Creator/AleisterCrowley is an occasional nudist. [[spoiler: When he is first re-introduced in ''The Horror of Loch Ness'' he is capering around a restaurant naked in the mistaken belief that he has made himself invisible. He keeps moving things around so that people think the objects are floating. Everyone can see him, however. They don't want to disappoint him though, so they pretend that they can't.]]

* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: The title of track one of ''The King of Winter'' is given in the liner notes as "They Call Him Mr. Tibbs". The chapter does indeed centre around a character called Harry Tibbs, but he's never actually referred to as "Mr. Tibbs". One suspects this is entirely intentional, given that the creators are aware not only of this website, but of this very page!
