Phoenix Nights

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.

Question: What is Jerry's last name? When Brian signs his name he signs 'Jerry St. Clair', but in the hospital the nurse says 'Mr. Digman', and the plaque above the door of the Phoenix Club says both names. What is going on?

Chosen answer: His name is Jerry St. Clair Dignan. He presumably prefers to go by Jerry St. Clair, hence Brian calling him that - hospital records, on the other hand, would have his full name, hence the nurse calling him Mr Dignan.

Question: We Know Brian is old (he says in one episode his Cadillac is his pension), how come he has no wrinkles on his face? I wouldn't think Brian has facials.

Chosen answer: I always took that line about the Cadillac being his pension meant that its something he's going to enjoy when he retires. Otherwise, wouldn't he have said, "my pension paid for that" or something. And apart from that, Brian is played by a much younger Peter Kay, who probably decided that putting on lots of fancy age make-up would be both expensive, and unneccessary for a cheaply made sitcom.

Season 2 Episode 6 - S2-E6

Question: In the 'Stars in their Eyes' bit, which of the characters is singing as George Michael on, 'Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me'?

Chosen answer: Jerry St. Claire.

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.

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.
