* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Meggy disappears in between the first two miniseries, and producer Mark Herbert tweeted that this is because he 'died taking a dump' off-screen in 1987. The canonicity of this is questionable, but as there is no mentioning of him whatsoever after the fact, fans have no choice but to take this as WordofGod.
** Although one could say that his appearance at the wedding party at the end of This Is England '90 debunks this.
** Banjo is nowhere to be found in '90, despite appearing in both previous seasons.
