The show ran from 1999 to 2002, which included three series and a Christmas Special. It also had two live shows in 2001 and 2006 respectively, as well as a feature length movie in 2005. A fourth series consisting of three episodes will air in December 2017, in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of when the show originally debuted on BBC Radio in 1997.

* HospitalHottie: One of the few times an actual woman appeared on the show was when Al brought home a nurse named Patricia as a date. Unfortunately, Pop ruined everything by loudly talking about how great the film version of ''WatershipDown'' is, discussing porn, and trying to steal Patricia.

* {{Homage}}: Edward frequently references ''TheWickerMan'', and Chloe & Radclyffe obviously parody ''Film/TheShining''. Papa Lazarou's introductory episode features a few quotes from ''Film/{{Freaks}}'', and Geoff's subplot in Season 2 parodied ''{{Deliverance}}''. In fact, at least one {{horror}} movie gets referenced per episode.

* CelebrityParadox: Mick [=McNamara=] claims that an episode of Tom Baker-era ''Series/DoctorWho'' was filmed at the Stump Hole caverns. So why does Mick, and approximately one third of the town, look exactly like that guy who played Dr. Lazarus in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E6TheLazarusExperiment "The Lazarus Experiment"]] and wrote the episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E7TheIdiotsLantern "The Idiot's Lantern"]]? And why does another third of the town so greatly resemble the guy who played Strackman Lux in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E8SilenceInTheLibrary "Silence in the Library"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead "Forest of the Dead"]]? And why [[spoiler:does Dougal Siepp so greatly resemble the Ninth Doctor?]]

* CircusOfFear: Papa Lazarou's circus. Though it doesn't have much effect in Royston Vasey, and eventually the ''circus'' flees in terror because the ''town'' is too weird.
