* RetroactiveRecognition: While it's less of a surprise to British audiences, quite a few of the stars are now well known for their work on US TV shows, as well as a few UK TV shows that are equally big in the US like ''Doctor Who'', ''Sherlock'', and ''Downton Abbey''. For an American viewer getting directed towards their earlier work on ''Misfits'', watching the show can lead to quite a few cases of this, such as:
** Simon is [[Series/GameOfThrones Ramsay Snow]]!
** Nikki is [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD Raina]] and [[Series/{{Preacher}} Tulip]]!
** Rudy is [[Series/{{Preacher}} Cassidy]]!
** Jess is [[Series/UnderTheDome Rebecca Pine]]!
** Marnie is [[Series/GameOfThrones Clea]]!
** Nathan's mum is [[Series/GameOfThrones Catelyn Stark]]!
** Abby is [[Series/{{Sherlock}} The Abominable Bride]]!
** Lily is [[Series/DoctorWho Jenny]] (of the [[OneSteveLimit Paternoster Gang]], not [[spoiler:the Doctor's daughter]])!
** Rachel is [[Series/DowntonAbbey Lady Sybil]]!

* RoleEndingMisdemeanor: Kelly was written out of the show after Lauren Socha was arrested and convicted of racially aggravated assault on a taxi driver. Despite Channel 4 denying that her conviction had anything to do with Kelly being PutOnABus, Socha's career has stalled, with only two television appearances since then.
