This exhaustive reference identifies and explains the plethora of cultural, historical, and topical allusions of this landmark series. In this resource, virtually every allusion and reference that appeared in an episode ”whether stated by a character, depicted in the mise-en-scene, or mentioned in the printed scripts ”is identified and explained. Organized chronologically by episode, each entry is listed alphabetically, indicates what sketch it appeared in, and is cross-referenced between episodes. Entries cover literary and metaphoric allusions, symbolisms, names, peoples, and places; as well as the myriad social, cultural, and historical elements (photos, songs, slogans, caricatures) that populate and inform these episodes. Entries Include: "Arabella Plunkett" Group of famous characters from famous paintings Hell's Grannies HRH The Dummy Princess Margaret "Kandinsky" "On the Dad's Liver Bachelors at Large" Raymond Baxter type Scun "Spanish Inquisition" "Third Parachute Brigade Amateur Dramatic Society" "total cashectomy" "Two-Sheds" "Umbonga's hostile opening" Vicar sitting thin and unhappy in a pot "What's all this then?"
