Trivia
The character of Vince is a Doctor Who fan - both creator/writer/producer Russell T. Davies and script editor Matt Jones are fans of Doctor Who (1963) and wrote spin-off novels for Virgin Publishing in the mid-1990s. Davies later became executive producer of Doctor Who (2005) and hired Jones to write for series two.

A follow-up, spin-off series ("Misfits") was initially commissioned by Channel 4 due to the show's success. It would have followed the characters of Hazel, Alexander and Bernard from the original series, while introducing new characters. Although Russell T. Davies developed draft scripts for four episodes and storylines for a further 22, the series was cancelled before it went into production.
