      • Narrator: Britain, Britain, Britain! Recently awarded the OBE. But why? Not just because we won all those wars, or invented the scone, no! It's because of the people of Britain, the British, the 'Brits' or 'Scum' as we are affectionately known around the world. Let's take a trip around this fragrant isle and find out just who are them and what are their doings. Bring it on!

      • Detective: You do know it's an offense to waste police time?
        Vicky: No, but yeah, but no, but yeah, but no, but yeahbutno because I'm not wasting police time because you know Meesha?

    • NOTES (4)

      • The Kenny Craig car park sketch was one of the sketches cut from the pilot episode.

      • The Detective who interviews Vicky is the same David Walliams character that interviewed Viv in the previous episode suggesting it's the same robbery and this is a continuation of the Viv sketch.

      • There was a bit of forward planning with this episode, it features 3 Christmas related sketches and although this seemed strange when shown on BBC THREE on November 9th, no one would notice when it was broadcast on BBC ONE on December 23rd. And they did it without taking the episode out of sequence with the rest of the series.

      • This is probably the only episode that Andy speaks more than about 5 words in one sentence.

    • ALLUSIONS (9)

      • Vicky: She was gonna go down the Wimpy...

        Wimpy is a chain of Fast Food restaurants.

      • Emily: The Rambert, The Bolshoi

        Rambert is a famous English theatrical dance company.
        The Bolshoi is a famous Russian theatrical dance company.

        Florance shows his ignorance by adding 'Legs and Co.' which were a dancing troupe featured on 'Top of the Pops' in the 1970s.

      • Anne appears on stage as Lady Bracknell in 'The Importance of Being Earnest'

        The Importance of Being Earnest is a famous stage play, which has also had many film remakes.

      • Narrator: Chicken McNuggets and Chips!

        A reference to McDonalds foods. Although they serve Fries and not Chips, this is most likely part of the joke and not a goof.

      • Daffyd makes a protest march against the Library wearing a pink cape and a light blue top .

        Is it a bird, is it a plane, no it's Gayman! A clothing reference to Superman. Daffyd has similar style atire with a Superman style G instead of an S which obviously stands for 'Gay'.

      • Daffyd Makes a new 'Gay (+ Lesbian Inc. Bisexual)' section in the library

        Daffyd brings several books citing them as belonging in a 'Gay' section which he thinks doesn't exist. The books include The Naked Civil Servant by Quentin Crisp, The Orton Diaries by Joe Orton, and My Struggle by Dale Winton. The latter of which is a fake and is actually a spoof title of the real Dale Winton autobiography My Story.

      • Daffyd holds up another fake book - I Tried It Once And Didn't Like It by Micheal Portillo.

        Michael Portillo is a former Cabinet Minister of the UK Conservative Party who caused a political stir in 1999 when he revealed he had homosexual experiences in his youth.

      • Lou about Andy: Something for Arthur C. Clarke on his Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious World.

        Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious World - Early 1980s 'unexplained mystery' programme. Hosted by Arthur. C. Clarke

      • Lou about Andy: Toyah Wilcox could sing about it in her song 'It's A Mystery'.

        Toyah Wilcox - TV Personality / Music Artist famous for appearances on multiple TV shows from the late 70s to the present and a string of music hits in the eighties.
