* ActorAllusion: Taken almost to RecursiveReality levels. Creator/SteveCoogan, who played Tony Wilson, based his comedy character Series/AlanPartridge partly on Tony Wilson, and there are notable similarities between how the characters are presented.
* ProductionPosse: Steve Coogan would go on (as of 2015) to appear in four more Creator/MichaelWinterbottom films, ''[[Literature/TristramShandy A Cock and Bull Story]]'', ''The Trip'', ''The Look Of Love'', and ''The Trip To Italy''. Shirley Henderson (who plays Tony Wilson's wife) had appeared previously in ''Wonderland'' and would later appear in ''Shandy'', ''Everyday'', and ''The Look Of Love''.
