----* WriteWhoYouKnow:
** Simon Day admits to basing "Competitive Dad" on a man he saw at a public swimming pool, who challenged his children to a race and then swam away at top speed leaving them to struggle behind him.
*** This inspiration formed part of the very last Competitive Dad sketch, where we see a video recording of Competitive Dad's own father doing it to him as a child.
** Rowley Birkin QC was based on a similarly incomprehensible (English) person Paul Whitehouse met in Iceland - although his style also owes something to ventriloquist Ray Alan's puppet Lord Charles.
** One of Arabella Weir's characters is a woman who suggests something to a group of arguing men, only for them to totally ignore her and hear the suggestion [[GladIThoughtOfIt as though one of them had made it]]. This, as Whitehouse and Higson wryly realised on reading the first sketch, was her commentary on how they tended to treat her in script meetings.
** Insecure Woman was suggested to Weir by the others, based on herself.
** Swiss Toni was apparently based on several different real car salesmen.
** The Suit You Tailors were based on a real person, but oddly enough, a bank manager rather than a tailor.
