Trivia

In the closing credits, the character of Darren Lamb is listed only as "Agent". Shaun Williamson's character is listed as "Barry", although he actually plays himself, which mirrors Darren's habit of always referring to him as "Barry from EastEnders (1985)", although Andy calls him "Shaun".

In love with Maggie. I wanted to bash anyone who hurt her feelings. Jensen plays this character with such vulnerability and respect.
