** There are more than a few ''Series/DoctorWho'' references. Claire Skinner (Sue) had a guest role in the 2011 Christmas special for that year, while David Troughton (Mr Hunslet) had a guest role in the episode "Midnight". ''Outnumbered'' also featured Silas Carson (Ravi), Sanjeev Bhaskar (Ray), Rebecca Front (Karen's headteacher) and John Sessions (the vicar at Bob's funeral), both of whom had various roles in the show's post-2005 revival. Finally, Samantha Bond (Angela) had a role in ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'', while guest star Katy Wix also appeared in ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'''s ''Children of Earth''.
** The ''Franchise/StarWars'' universe is mentioned semi-regularly. The aforementioned Silas Carson had two roles in the prequel trilogy, specifically that of Ki-Adi Mundi and Nute Gunray.
** Pete name-drops ''Series/HorribleHistories'' in Season 4. Katy Wix, a member of the ensemble cast, had a guest role as a prospective buyer of the Brockman's house.
