* CounterEarth: Zenophon was this in the 1986 series.



* DataPad: Damien keeps his homework on one, which he tries to lose.

to:

* DataPad: Damien keeps his homework on one, which he tries to lose. One episode even sees it destroyed during a Federal Alliance scuffle, but Damien's delight is cut short not only by the attack, but by Gemma informing him that the school would only give him a new one anyway.



** To a lesser degree, many weasels and other mustelids seem to hail from various former Eastern Bloc countries.



* FriendInTheBlackMarket: Jimmy DaWeasel, though Gemma herself sometimes fulfills this purpose.

to:

* FriendInTheBlackMarket: Jimmy DaWeasel, though Gemma herself sometimes fulfills this purpose. DC Fusky masquerades as one in the 2005 remake of ''The Great Chocolate Biscuit Caper''.



* HyperspaceLanes: Occasionally given a mention, and are seemingly analogous to British motorways.



* RelativeError: Happens in 'Damien's Valentine's Day Panic'. Jehlise sees Damien chatting with another girl in the spaceport cafe, and assumes that Damien is cheating on her with 'his own kind' (the girl is a young fox with 'raccoon markings', like Damien). When she confronts him about it the next day, he explains that the girl is in fact his cousin Anita.

* EmbarrassingFirstName: In the 1987 version of "The Great Chocolate Biscuit Caper", DC Bones reveals his first name to be Tom. Naturally, both Damien and Fluff ask if he knows [[TomJones 'Green, Green Grass Of Home']]. This joke is omitted from the 2005 remake, since Bones is replaced by DC Fusky for most of the episode. Additionally, Bones' first name has been established elsewhere to actually be Meic.

** Depending on who you ask, Spiker & Bones are based on either [[TheSweeney Regan & Carter]] or Chisholm & Jones.

** In the BBC Radio Cumbria version of 'Duke & The Space Gypsy', a malfunctioning computer tells Gemma that [[RedDwarf NORWEB have sent a ship after her because she'd left her bathroom light on when she left home ten years ago.]] Subverted, in that the episode was recorded a year before the transmission of the Red Dwarf episode featuring this same joke.

** Since the series is narrated by John Leeson, there are quite a lot of [[DoctorWho Doctor Who]] references. The 1987 series even has Sixth Doctor Colin Baker as the announcer.

* OfficialFanSubmittedContent: Of sorts. The Mildurys' supposed cousin Anita, mentioned in ''Damien's Valentine's Day Panic'', was created by Space Gypsy fan Melanie Lowe, and inserted into the story by David Monid, the episode's writer, and a friend of Lowe.

** Of course, there's nothing to suggest that Duke is that much better than his sister (Neither are any of the other characters, come to think of it). Randy in particular is shown to be even worse than his wife. Nothing wrong with the food itself, mind, but his methods are rather questionable...
