** An aversion of this occurs S2 Ep7 when the show portrays the cruel and racist treatment of a Jamaican immigrant woman by her neighbors (they insist that Jenny "come to us first"), although one of the neighbors eventually comes round and helps the Jamaican woman when she goes into labor (in part because the Jamaican woman had saved her--and presumably her baby--from a fall down the poorly-maintained stairs).

-->[[spoiler:'''Trixie''']]: You don’t forget what it’s like to be putting on a show, wishing all the time that somebody, ''anybody'' who can help will say, ‘Something the matter?’ —- and hoping all the time that nobody does because you have ''so'' much to hide.

* TelevisionGeography: In one episode, a couple leave Poplar after walking to a below surface LondonUnderground station. Poplar has never had a Tube station - the LNER station closed in 1944 after wartime bombing and is now the site of All Saints DLR station; Poplar's own DLR station did not open until 1987. Indeed, most trips to London in the show are actually done by bus.
