* ChannelHop: From BBC One (Series 1-9) to ITV (Series 10+)



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first series had a very odd title sequence, showing Sharon and Tracey standing together in a darkened room in a way that made them look more like lovers than sisters, while the theme song was performed by a ''man'', in a very downbeat manner. Starting with the second series, this was changed to the more familiar sequence showing pictures of them growing up together, with the theme song now sung by a woman in a slightly more up-tempo fashion.

* TheOtherDarrin: All of the men. Darryl managed to stay as the same actor up until the last series before being suddenly recast. Meanwhile, Garth regenerated twice and then settled into his third form and Marcus was played by a different actor every time we saw him (which, admittedly, wasn't very often as he spent most of the series' run as TheGhost). However, Chris is the most notable example, he was recast after Series One, stayed in his new form for most of the show and then reached the last series and turned back into his Series One actor. In the new series, Garth is played by a new actor again

A new series started on {{ITV}} (the original was on TheBBC) in 2014, 16 years after the "final" episode. This starts off with Sharon back in her council flat, but [[StatusQuoIsGod events conspire]] to bring her back to Chigwell.

** Dorien and Sharon work in "World of Quid" a fictionalised version of Poundland. For extra points, the shop is clearly a former Woolworths with some of the letters still used in the sign - Poundland is the largest owner of former Woolies stores.
