In popular culture

The series has been the subject of jokes[1], especially from the Radio 4 comedy programme I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue:

We kick off this week with a game called Worst Things To Hear, and it's all about those little phrases you might inadvertently overhear, and immediately wish you hadn't. One that instantly springs to mind is: "...and now an extended edition of You and Yours...
...we've received this letter, and it comes from a Mrs. Trellis of North Wales. She writes: Dear You and Yours, I see you now have a 'listen again' facility. Why? Yours sincerely, Mrs. Trellis.
Humphrey Lyttleton: Please complete these similes. As boring as? Sandi Toksvig: As boring as You and Yours.
