Trivia / The IT Crowd

  • Accent Depundent: In one episode Jen is dating a man who is almost perfect except that his name is Peter File, which in British English sounds almost exactly like "paedophile." Moss even points out that the problem wouldn't exist if they were in America (where the first vowel is a short rather than long "e").
  • Acting for Two: One asian "actress" plays both female Sulu and female Spock in Douglas' homemade Star Trek porn. For bonus points, the actress, Gemma Chan, also played Ivana in a prior episode of the same series.
  • Actor Allusion: Oliver Chris once again plays an employee of a large corporation who dabbles in quiz shows.
  • The Cast Showoff: Philip Rham, who played Johann the German cannibal in "Moss and the German", was an actual professional cellist (as one could probably guess from him prominently playing the cello in The Stinger of the episode...).
  • Development Hell: The hour-long Grand Finale special came as a result of none of the people from the series being on the same schedule once the forth series wrapped, only having a small window of opportunity a few years later.
  • What Could Have Been: An American version was planned and a pilot was shot, but not picked up. The biggest effect would have been Joel McHale passing up Community for it.
  • Word of Dante: Chris O'Dowd claims that Moss and Roy met in their first year of college, immediately became friends and then never made friends with anyone else.
