Continuity mistake: Papa Lazarou's black/brown and white face is supposed to be his real skin, however it is very different to his photograph.

Suggested correction: Do you mean the photo of the real Keith Drop when they are in the house with Brian and the lady from the charity shop? If so that person is not supposed to look like Papa Lazarou with black/brown/white face as it's in fact a photo of the person he is impersonating and whose identity he has stolen, e.g Keith Drop when who has the appearance of a white man, hence why Papa is painting his face with make up to look like him.

Revealing mistake: The white around Papa's lips and eyes is slightly running when he is sprayed with water. however the white is supposed to be part of his real skin.

Show generally

Factual error: On the Series 3 DVD extra disk, it says that the Doctor's role model is "Patch Adams (Robbie Williams)", but the actor Robin Williams was Patch Adams, not the pop star Robbie.

Beauty and the Beast (Or, Come into My Parlour) - S3-E5

Trivia: While filming exterior scenes at "Spit and Polish" for this episode, the league had trouble with some members of the public. A car kept driving past them until they said "Action", and then it revved its engine so they had to start filming again.

How The Elephant Got Its Trunk - S3-E6

Trivia: In the last episode of Series 3, the league wanted the animals to look nothing like animals and be obviously people inside animal suits. When making the series, they were 'forced' to use animals with people added with computer, and so the whole point was missed.

Trivia: To avoid conflict, and to save time, the league write the show in pairs. Mark writes with Jeremy (the unseen one), and Steve with Reece.
