* CreatorBreakdown: Creator/MichaelWinner came up with the basic storyline after a relationship of his had ended. Speaking to Tim Sebastian of Creator/TheBBC in June 1999, Winner revealed:
-->We all have people we'd like to kill. Sometimes we want to kill them for a long time and sometimes it just lasts the few seconds that they're cutting you up, or being a nuisance. A girlfriend parted very nastily, and I thought "I really wouldn't mind killing you" and five or six years later I thought, "I still wouldn't mind".



* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine:
** Former [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor and companion]] Creator/PeterDavison and Nicola Bryant are reunited.
** Creator/BobHoskins and Creator/JoannaLumley voiced the title characters in ''WesternAnimation/TheForgottenToys'', but they don't share any screentime.
