!!The miniseries provides examples of:
* AbsenteeActor: Three characters from the film are mysteriously missing from the miniseries - Pukey, Kes and Pob (Milky's girlfriend). No explanation is given for their absence, although possibly {{justified}} considering the series takes place three years later and friends can come and go in that time.
** Pukey and Kes are effectively replaced by Harvey, who was a minor schoolyard bully in the film and not a member of the skinheads.
* AbusiveParents:
** [[spoiler:Lol's father is sexually abusive.]]
** Harvey's father is shown briefly to be physically abusive.
* AscendedExtra:
** Harvey, who had a very brief appearance in the film as a bully at Shaun's school, is now a fully-fledged member of the gang.
** Flip, the hilarious leader of the biker gang in '86, had a "blink-and-you-miss-it" moment in the film as the boy who mocked Shaun's trousers outside Mister Sandhu's shop. In '90 he is more prominently featured in the cast, along with Higgy.
** Trudy had a throwaway appearance as a shoe shopkeeper in a single scene of the film, the returns in the miniseries with a significantly expanded role, in which it's revealed that the shoe shop is just one of her many current *ahem* ...enterprises.
* BackForTheFinale: Meggy, Banjo, Trudy, Kes and Pob all make brief silent cameos in the final episode of '90.
* BritishBrevity: Four episodes in the first miniseries, three in the second, and four in the third.
* CharacterFocus: Kelly receives a lot more focus in '90.
* 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 '90 debunks this.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Gadget and Kel have a wheelchair race in the hospital, not following any particular route, and it just so happens that the race reaches its climax in the exact same place where Lol and Kel's mum has just come in at the exact same time.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Gives Lol, Woody and Milky a lot more scrutiny.
%%* LargeHam: Flip to a tee.
%%* NewJobEpisode
%%* ParentWithNewParamour
* RapeAsBackstory: [[spoiler:Lol, by her father]].
%%* RapeAsDrama
%%* TakingTheHeat: [[spoiler:Combo.]]
%%* ThoseTwoGuys: Flip and Higgy in '90.
* TimeSkip: {{Inverted}} with '86, as it's set three years after the film but the gap of time between filming the two was significantly longer! However, '86 was followed by '88, which as the name suggests is set two years later, but filmed and aired one year later. This looks to be repeated with '90.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Milky is revealed to be Lol's... 'til he gets lucky. [[spoiler:He breaks it off when he realises Lol and Woody are the OfficialCouple.]]

Strong provincial accents abound - it is about as far away from BritainIsOnlyLondon as it can get.
