The Lesbian and the Monkey - S3-E1

Trivia: At the beginning of almost every episode of the 1st and 2nd series, there was some kind of sign pinned on a lamppost/notice board/on the floor e.g. "Missing: finger". In the first episode of series 3, the church notice board has a sign that reads "Missing: Have you seen our vicar?" or something to that effect. This is in reference to the vicar, Bernice, who was 'stolen' by Papa Lazarou at the end of the Christmas special and who later returns in this series.

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.
