* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In "Whatever Possesed You?", there are several references to a ghost known as "The Ice Maiden", along with the Faceless Lady and Burning Man we meet later. We never see this character or hear anymore about her, the only possibility suggested being [[spoiler: that this is landlady Virginia Carpenter's true identity.]]

* SympathyForTheDevil: It's difficult not to feel sorry for Sonia Cronenberg in "Whatever Possessed You?" She has been supporting the man she loved for fifty years, stranded in 1951, until she is eventually tricked out of the building and finally passes over sobbing, realising her lover is gone for good.

* EditedForSyndication: The BBC America airings were completely botched by this.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Pretty much everyone; aside from the main cast, regulars from ''TheFastShow'' would show up almost constantly in guest roles (as they always have done in Reeves and Mortimer productions).

* TheOtherDarrin: Felia was played by Jessica Hynes in the first season, and replaced by Pauline Quirke for her sole appearance in the second season. Considering that her characterisation seemed to totally change between the two seasons (Hynes's version was confident and self-assertive, but Quirke's version was a neurotic crybaby with OCD), it seems kind of strange that they bothered to keep her as the same character.

It ran 26 episodes from 1969 to 1970 on {{ITV}}, starring Mike Pratt and Kenneth Cope. It had a {{Remake}} in 2000 (by {{the BBC}}, [[ChannelHop curiously]]) for a moderately successful 13-episode run over two seasons as ''Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)'' (note the ampersand), a much sillier series (though the original was silly, too... just not nearly ''as'' silly) featuring ComedyDuo Vic Reeves (as Marty) and Bob Mortimer (as Jeff). The revival series also added extra powers and Wyvern, a ghostly tutor for Marty, played by Creator/TomBaker.

* RemakeCameo of sorts. Mike Pratt died in real life between the two versions of of the show, but was seen, via stock footage, in one heaven scene of the remake. It was left to the viewer to decide if he was there as himself or as the original Randall, now also deceased.
