* SpiritualSuccessor: ''Series/ManToManWithDeanLearner'', a chat show using many of the same characters. Also, ''Series/SnuffBox'', which starred Matt Berry, had Alice Loewe in a cameo (as DavidBowie, of all people), and had Dean Learner show up a few times.

Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: When Dagless and Reed are discussing the notion of telekinesis over the phone, Liz is literally standing right in front of Reed, using said power with various objects floating near her. Reed doesn't even mention this to Dagless, instead just mentioning that "she's got a face like the proverbial" and she's probably on her period. Reed only figures it out when she gets even ''more blatant'' about it and boxes him into the corner of the room with his own desk.

* BigNo: About seven per episode. Sanch's scream when his first shakes Liz's hand is so ridiculously long that even Sanch starts looking bored and glancing around.

* DelusionsOfEloquence: Garth is quite fond of trying to sound erudite, and failing catastrophically (mostly due to explaining what any [[ViewersAreMorons remotely exotic word means]]).

* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Garth is fond of peppering his speech with foreign words, mostly [[GratuitousFrench French]], ([[ViewersAreMorons which he then translates]]) in an effort to make him sound more intelligent.

* TwoWordsAddedEmphasis: "I've got two words for you: [[{{Telekinesis}} Tele. Kinesis.]]"
* {{Understatement}}: It's probably a given, as the show ''is'' British, after all.

The ShowWithinAShow focuses around the staff of Darkplace Hospital in Romford, East London, which is apparently built over [[{{Hellgate}} the very Gates of Hell]]. Or, to be slightly more accurate, it's about Dr. Rick Dagless, M.D (played by Marenghi himself) [[MartyStu who is the best doctor in the world ever, as well as a crack shot, action hero and master warlock]]. Nevertheless, Dr. Rick Dagless, M.D, and (to a lesser extent) his friends and co-workers are the only hope the planet has against the various evils that rise up in Darkplace Hospital, including [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking mutant eye-babies, infectious broccoli-women, and of course, Scotsmen]].

** One storyline involves an eye-monster getting born from the eye of a sex-offender getting caught up in an experimental gamma ray surgery procedure. This sounds awfully familiar to the backstory of ''Film/TheFly''.
