The history book featured in the Series 1 title sequence states on its title page to be a product of the 'Dix Publishing Company'. This is a reference to the series historical advisor, Peter Dix.

A typographical error in the credits of the first episode from Series 2, Heads You Lose, has John Woodvine credited as the 'Pyschiatrist' - rather than the Psychiatrist.
