** Hacker's worry about being assigned to [[TheTroubles Northern Ireland]] is not an example of this, as the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland was and is based in London, but the post was regarded as one of the most troublesome in the cabinet and one of the few which carried a significant risk of assassination, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s.

* SelfInsertFic: Possibly the only time the author of a SelfInsertFic performed alongside the stars. Helps if you're MargaretThatcher.

* JustTrainWrong: In "The Official Visit", while Bernard is running for the train, a sign reading "OFF" lights up. Then, once he's safely on the train, the signal goes green and the train leaves. In reality the "OFF" indicators are linked to the signals, and change at the same time as them; showing "OFF" when the signal is still red would be a serious safety failure.

** Humphrey actually isn't amoral: he believe it's the role of the civil service to ensure continuity of government and good order, so he's opposed to any kind of radical change, wherever on the political spectrum it's coming from. (Although Margaret Thatcher loved this show, Humphrey would have hated the way she drove a wrecking ball through civil service procedures in order to further her political agenda. Humphrey is conservative by temperament, unlike the Conservative party itself at the time this show was being made.)

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Normally reserved and aloof, Sir Humphrey is visibly amused at Hacker's description of who reads [[BritishNewspapers the newspapers]].

Added DiffLines:

** When Jim finds out his style of governing is criticised as "dictatorial", he's rather pleased with himself. Being frequently frustrated with his orders being outright disobeyed, he seems to enjoy idea of being all powerful dictator, and comments that sometimes strong leadership is needed. As if to hammer the point, as he sits down he slips out rather happily "dictatorial, eh?".
