Sam Bain has revealed the show's title was inspired by a comic book. The pilot was called POV (Point Of View), but changed its name before broadcast. "We sort of nicked it from a comic book," he admitted, adding quickly: "I've talked to the guy who created the comic ... it's fine, we're not going to get sued."

The writers and stars don't like it when people incorrectly title the programme The Peep Show. David Mitchell explains: "That makes it sound like it's a sitcom about an actual peep show." The show's first sponsor, Kenco, made that mistake. The writers finally got their revenge in the first episode of the final series, in which Mark says: "I'll just go and get a cup of the Kenco".
