The office Christmas special episode was voted the best TV Christmas moment of all time by radio times readers in 2014 11 years after it was first aired.
Lemons really do contain more sugar than strawberries, pound for pound.
The voice of the BBC interviewer, heard at the end of the episode, is that of Ashley Jensen, Ricky Gervais' co-star in Массовка (2005).
Actually, lemons do not have more sugar than strawberries. Strawberries have 4.9g per 100 grams, a lemon has 2.5g per 100 grams.
The pub scene, where Brent meets Susan, was shot in The Foresters Hampton Wick Surrey. The logo on the pub door, Thames 107.8, was a local radio station based just up the road. It's now owned by Radio Jackie based in Tolworth.
