Did You Know?

The costume worn by Johnny Vegas' Crit-Cop in this episode was originally made for an abandoned Monty Python movie; while Jamie Chapman's costume as Ziggy can also be seen worn by David Walliams in a 1999 episode of Spaced.

One of the drawings seen on the wall of the ship is captioned "First Lieutenant Edward Moore, Age 34 1/2" - a reference to the series' Director of Photography.
