Trivia: Auf Wiedersehen, Pet

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: The whole lead cast, actually, and most of the villains. Just to scrape the surface:
    • Jimmy Nail went on to play the title character in the detective series Spender;
    • Kevin Whately played DS (later DI) Lewis in both Inspector Morse and Lewis;
    • Timothy Spall played Wormtail in the Harry Potter films;
    • Chris Fairbank was Murphy (the first person to die) in Alien³;
      • He also (foolishly) dismisses the idea of Batman in the [[Film/Batman '89 movie]], only for irony to strike.
    • Pat Roach had minor roles in the first three Indiana Jones films;
    • Noel Clarke is Mickey Smith from the Christopher Eccleston/David Tennant era of Doctor Who.
    • The main villain in the 2002 season is Bill Nighy.
    • Lysette Anthony plays Wayne's wife and Ray Winstone plays a soldier in the first series.
  • What Could Have Been: A third series set in Russia was planned during the 1980s, but was cancelled due to Gary Holton's death. This premise was briefly used at the beginning of season four.
