Trivia

In the title sequence, Alan Cumming [Sebastien Flyte] does an incorrect dance move. Whereas the rest of the stewards leap with their arms up, Cumming performs a move which is a throwback to his days in Cabaret in London's West End - a Nazi salute with two fingers of his other hand forming a 'moustache'.

Quotes

Sebastian and Steve: Every time I see you walking down the street, I get all shivery from my head down to my feet. I don't know what's going on down below, My organs aren't responding in a way that I know.

...And lights up the aisle...
12 June 2002 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this series with my mum and found it hilarious. What happened? It was probably the best thing on the BBC at the time - well written, well acted and well loved. It not only introduced me to the wonderfully funny and gorgeous Alan Cumming, but had some of the best catch-phrases ever! The sight of the crew doing their 'front exits, back exits, side exits' exercise has lived with me ever since. Like so many other great shows, a new series would spoil it, but is it asking too much for a rerun or video box set?
