Trivia / The Navy Lark

  • Acting for Two:
    • Close attention to the closing credits reveals that the main cast appear as some of the caricature-voiced minor characters
    • Also, Heather Chasen plays both lovely Wren Chasen and the appalling Mrs. Povey (as well as most of the female spies).
  • The Danza: All three of the central characters have the same names as the actors who played them.
  • Executive Meddling: It was decided halfway through the run that forces based humour had had its day and that the series would therefore be Retooled to be set in a tv studio and called The TV Lark. A few episodes were recorded before sanity prevailed and the whole ghastly thing became Canon Discontinuity. The official Retcon in the last episode of The TV Lark showed it to be a particularly ambitious scheme by CPO Pertwee.
  • Talking to Himself: Usually averted, as even though the main cast played other characters, the scripts rarely had those characters interact (for instance, CPO Pertwee was almost never in the same scene as either The Master or CMDR Weatherby).
