- The series was partly inspired by Jack Dee’s own real-life experiences of a move from the city to the countryside that did not work out for him and his wife. Though, unlike Steve and Nicky, Dee had kept his house in London as well as buying a cottage in the countryside.
- The character of Grizzo, played by comedian Seann Walsh, is based upon Blur musician-turned-farmer-turned-award-winning-cheese-maker Alex James whose move to the countryside has spawned multiple new careers and has certainly not been a disaster.
