There are people who still watch broadcast TV in 2014? Go back to your Amish villages weirdos.

I haven't seen it but I would take it to mean that most people are not serial wife murderers rather than 'he's foreign'. I can imagine the doom laden voice now It's the sort of thing they say when the protagonist is odd/alien/very different to the norm.
I wouldn't worry about it!

Might have to try and hunt it out online, I do like Reece Sheersmith but have the same problem as others, I still associate him with the League of Gentlemen. I have a mental image of him in this saying 'you're [not] my wife now'...

Makes me laugh every time I read about it

Although I do remember there being some fuss about Sir Top n Hat but it never materialised. He's still called The Fat Controller on them.
