[show]Freddie Thornill (Ian McKellen) mentions several times that he was in Doctor Who (UK) and was voted 10th Popular Villain; McKellen did actually voice the Great Intelligence, a popular villain, in the Doctor Who (UK) 2012 Christmas Special "The Snowmen". Derek Jacobi (Stuart Bixby) has also appeared as Professor Yana/The Master in the Doctor Who (UK) episode "Utopia".
- The series is loosely inspired by the film Staircase (1969) which starred Rex Harrison and Richard Burton as a pair of aging queens, exactly like Freddie and Stuart in this series.
- The show was originally titled "Vicious Old Queens", but this was thought of as too obscene and so was shortened to just "Vicious".
