* SinisterMinister: Edward Laygass combines this with a plan to take over the United Kingdom and expel non-Christians. Hagan notes in her review that he's a kind of [[WeAllLiveInAmerica very American-style]] [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist televangelist]] [[ArtisticLicenseReligion that barely even exists in the UK, and one that would probably not even get a TV show like the one he appears in]].

Oddly enough SocietyMarchesOn, and if the series was made even a few years later he would seem like a blatant parody of a mainstream UKIP politician.

** The entire Boudica episode is based around the idea that the Romans really captured her alive, but spread the story of her suicide to discredit her. Even leaving aside how utterly pointless this is, both the Iceni and the Romans considered a defeated leader committing suicide to be an honorable death and being captured alive the ultimate humiliation.

A show that could be described as ''TimeTeam'' meets ''WakingTheDead'' meets ''IndianaJones'', it involves a bunch of archaeologists who have increasingly ludicrous adventures, usually culminating in the destruction of whatever precious artifact they're after this week.

** Episode two the characters find a slave ship that is dated about a decade after slavery was outlawed in England.
** Episode four Magwilde calms that 4000 years Egyptians and Greeks were much more advanced than the people in the UK who were doing nothing but "picking their teeth." They completely failed to mention that one of the oldest know human settlements, Skara Brae, was built of the coast of Northern Scotland, is still standing and they had a working drainage system.
