Phoenix Nights

Phoenix Nights (2001)

Season 1 Episode 2 - S1-E2

Other mistake: At the start of the line dancing scene where Ray Von is deejaying, if you have the subtitles on, it says the song is Hillbilly Rock, Hillbilly Roll by the Woolpackers. It's actually 5,6,7,8 by Steps. (I'm quite embarrassed I know that).

Season 1 Episode 4 - S1-E4

Deliberate mistake: In the scene with Brian and Beverly going up the stairs, Brian is in the chairlift, and you can see in front of the wig that Peter Kay wears where the red patch is where he has shaved his real hair.

Factual error: When Brian is talking to Kenny beside the inflatable, his phone goes off. He has a Motorola phone but it was a Nokia message alert sound.

Season 1 Episode 1 - S1-E1

Question: In the very first scene we hear Chorley FM, the DJ sounds a lot like Peter Kay. Is it him or am I wrong?

Chosen answer: Yes it is PK - the characters he plays are Brian, Max, Keith Lard and indeed the voice of the radio. you can hear him on the radio a few times throughout the series.

Season 1 Episode 6 - S1-E6

Question: In this episode Brian addresses Den Perry as Dennis, but in another episode in series 2 he calls him Denzel, I'm sure as they are rivals that they would know each other enough to get each other's name right, so why did Brian call him two different names?

Chosen answer: He doesn't have a longer name eg. Dennis or Denzel it's simply Den. Brian simply says this to make Den annoyed by giving him a long name. Another theory is Brian is so stupid that he just doesn't know Mr. Perry's name or is unsure of it but I'm sure it's the first one.

Show generally

Question: What happened to Marrion from the first series? She wasn't seen or mentioned in series two.

Chosen answer: She's not in it. There is a woman called Joyce, who could be seen as a replacement, but she has a much smaller part. I haven't heard why this happened.
