The writers had decided not to bring back Bough, English's sidekick from the 2003 film, as played by Ben Miller and decided to replace him with new character Agent Tucker. Miller did film a cameo, to link the two films together, but was cut.
In this movie, Rowan Atkinson was reunited with his The Black Adder (1982) co-star, Tim McInnerny, who played Patch Quartermain.

The ongoing search by the characters for the unknown third man in the spy ring is a take-off of the real-life years-long search for an unknown "Fifth Man" in the so-called Cambridge Five, a British spy ring which began operating during WWII.
The cat Philby is named after Harold Adrian Russell Kim Philby, a member of the Cambridge Five who betrayed his native UK to spy for the USSR.
Both Rowan Atkinson (Johnny English) and Rosamund Pike (Kate Summers) made their film debuts in Bond films, the former in Never Say Never Again (1983) and the latter in Die Another Day (2002).

The shown chemical formula of Timoxeline Barbebutenol, the fictional mind control drug pictured during the film, is actually the one of a barbiturate, any of a class of organic compounds used in medicine as sedatives, as hypnotics, or as an adjunct in anesthesia. Amobarbital and Pentobarbital are real-life drugs that share that formula.
