Some of its characters, such as Ted and Ralph and Swiss Toni , have had their own spin-off programmes. It also produced two national tours, the first in , with the cast of the BBC surrealist comedy quiz show Shooting Stars , and the second, their Farewell Tour, in Charlie Higson announced on 5 September that The Fast Show would return for a new, online-only series. After meeting through a mutual friend, comedian Harry Enfield invited Whitehouse to write for him.
Whitehouse in turn asked Higson to help him out. Higson made many appearances in minor roles, while Williams and Whitehouse had recurring roles with Vic and Bob in The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer , parodying the members of rock group Slade in the "Slade in Residence" and "Slade on Holiday" sketches. He was looking for new shows at the time to replace several high-profile series that had been recently lost to BBC1 , and their show was picked up.
The Fast Show was a working title disliked by both Whitehouse and Higson but it went unchanged through production and eventually remained as the final title. Many characters were never named, with their sketches being written to give their catchphrase as the punchline of each sketch.
Examples include "Anyone fancy a pint? Other long-standing running jokes in the programme included the fictitious snack food "Cheesy Peas" in various forms, shapes and flavours, in satirical adverts presented by a northern boy who claims, "They're great for your teas!

In the first series it was performed over the opening credits by Whitehouse in the guise of abnormally transfiguring singer Kenny Valentine.
In subsequent series, the tune only appeared in the closing credits, played on the saxophone. The show featured many characters and sketches. In a deleted scene of the movie, Sparrow also uses the Mark Williams catchphrase "I'll get me coat. No question. It was one of my favourite things, to have been on the last Fast Show. And maybe its the Freud inside us talking, but such things also get a little bit into the primal nature and occasional interplay of sex and death.
At any rate, since the final episode run of the show debuts this Sunday night and promises much tumult and fallout resulting from the ultra-shocking cliffhanger that capped off last season, we're expecting that viewers probably won't see much in the way of bedroom shenanigans as things build to the end.
Plus, Dexter broke the heart of his most recent paramour after causing her to get locked up. So here's a look back at some of most twisted, overly dramatic, or downright kinky sex scenes from the first seven seasons of the program. Like Dexter, she too had a "Dark Passenger," which was indulged as the pair avenged her brutal rape by helping tracking down and killing her attackers.
As expected, they became intimate towards the end of the season, immediately after stabbing one of 'em to death, which we guess happened to be particular turn-on for the character. It's sort of a quiet scene, but speaks volumes about both characters. Debra Morgan and Joey Quinn: The Living Room Getdown Dexter's aint the only one with a checkered love life, as his adopted sister Debra has had more than a her fair share of regrettable trysts, bad relationships, and weird crushes — including realizing she had romantic feelings for her bro.
Then she hooked up with fellow Miami Metro detective at the beginning of the fourth season via this impromptu get down as seen at the beginning of the glurgy YouTube montage above after she became overwhelmed with emotion while dealing with Rita's death.
