Added DiffLines:

* RoommateCom: The show is about a CampGay man and his FagHag friend sharing a flat near in the UsefulNotes/HomeCounties. They said that they've been roommates for years ever since they met up at a nightclub whilst intoxicated on drugs. For everybody else's sake, it's best that they stay together [[VitriolicBestBuds for the sake of their sanity]].

Added DiffLines:

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Suze. She can prove to be really quite cruel towards Linda. Perhaps justified by Linda's own nastiness towards her.

* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Linda usually mentions her's at least once an episode.
* [[Main/InnuendoTropes Innuendo]]: Whether it be [[AccidentalInnuendo Accidental]], [[InnocentInnuendo Innocent]] or just plain DoubleEntendre, it [[UpToEleven comes in spades]].

to:

* FriendsRentControl: Although Tom is an actor with an agent, he and Linda are rarely seen working, but Tom's recent appearances on television and on stage are usually mentioned whenever Tom wants to remind Linda that he does get employed.
** Linda, meanwhile, claimed she had just got a job working at a call center in the pilot, but gets fired two episodes later. Then we don't see her working until the season finale of season 2, and then nothing after that.
** How Beryl hasn't chucked them out is a mystery.

* RealSongThemeTune: The theme tune is {{ABBA}}'s "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme (A Man After Midnight)", which the show was named after. The version used as the theme tune isn't the original however, but a version sung by Tom and Linda karaoke style.

* VitriolicBestBuds: Although Tom and Linda seem to loathe each other as much as everyone else does, there are moments when they appear to geniunely show a strong friendship, such as Linda making an effort for Tom to have a good birthday, and the Millennium Special, in which Tom and Linda are the only characters to appear (dream sequences and the BigLippedAlligatorMoment notwithstanding), is full of them.
