* OutOfOrder: Series 3's episodes were changed in broadcast order; especially noticeable when the episode resolving the series 2 cliffhanger that opened with a recap of said cliffhanger was broadcast third in the run.



* YouLookFamiliar: Belinda Stewart-Wilson plays both Denholm's widowed wife in season 2 and Douglas' wife in season 4.
** On a smaller note, actress Creator/GemmaChan played both Ivana and Female Sulu/Female Spock in two separate season 4 episodes.

* StrawFeminist: Jen in "Calendar Geeks", who convinces the girls on seventh to make a nude calender featuring [[TheFullMonty unemployed men]] or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calendar_girls grannies]] instead of them, arguing it's "oppressive" and "sexist". Of course, when Douglas tells her she'll be accountable if it's not a success, she immediately tells Roy to use them, calling it "empowering". It appears to be a combination of jealousy, and screwing Roy over by forcing him to photograph old women until she is made responsible for it.

** In the finale, Roy is asked to be a pallbearer at a dwarf's funeral. He's the only tall person out of the 6 of them, and evidently nobody suggested he might hold the coffin at waist height...
-->'''Jen:''' Didn't have the required gravitas?\\
'''Roy:''' Gravitas? No no. Wasn't very dignified. It wasn't dignified at all, Jen! If I had to pick a word to describe Pip Pop's final journey to the grave, it would be "funny." It was ''sooo'' '''funny''', Jen! Of course, I tried not to laugh, I tried to put other things in my head, but every step that we took was a fresh reminder of just how ''funny'' the whole thing was!\\
'''Jen:''' You didn't... laugh, did you?\\
'''Roy:''' ''I laughed my hole off!''
