* Similar to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' example above, both ''EastEnders'' and ''Series/TheBill'' have had very distinctive "drumbeat" stings, which would punctuate the final scene of an episode at the point of a cliffhanger, and lead into the credits.
* ''The Saturday Night Armistice'': The ''EastEnders'' sting was parodied in a segment suggesting that there was a drummer constantly following the characters around waiting for an appropriately dramatic moment.

** In the first episode of the 2015 reboot, Danger Mouse is fired because the show can no longer afford to keep paying for the damage he causes in his action sequences; this news ought to be accompanied by a "Dun Dun DUN" sting, but all there is is the narrator ''saying'' "Dun Dun DUN", because they've had to save money by firing the musicians who provide the incidental music.

** Wait: do you mean the trumpety "[[http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/n64/zoot_item.mid Doo dududu ''doooooo''!]]" fanfare or the up-down "''[[http://208.53.138.111/soundtracks/zelda-1/lgiklpxsiz/05-secret.mp3 dadadada-dadadada]]''" chime when you accomplish something important?
