Added DiffLines:

* ShipperOnDeck: A (sort-of) meta example; the producer and new writer in the ''Preston and Loader'' sketch are determined to basically turn what was previously a detective show into their personal gay {{slash}} FanFiction by having Preston and Loader make out with each other in every scene. One of the actors objects to this, but it turns out that the other actor also ships the two.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Discussed by the people who make terrible slogans, with one suggesting that they have in fact become the victims of their own success. The boss isn't too happy with this.
-->'''Boss:''' That would be gratifying, but at the same time a pisser.



* The Incredibly Scary Vicar browbeats the two visitors to his church for their lack of spirituality to the point of eventually chasing them away screaming at them with a crucifix as if he were trying to expel demons. When they eventually flee, however, he complains that they didn't leave any money for the church upkeep.

* AsYouKnow: Frequently played for laughs in the radio version. In later series, a minor RunningGag is for one character to sum up information that everyone present already knows, and then say something like "I like to occasionally remind myself what's been going on. [[BlatantLies It's realistic."]]



* AsYouKnow: A RunningGag in the fifth series is for people to suddenly and randomly describe what they're doing or what's around them to people who should know these things perfectly well either on the off-chance that [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall they happen to be in a comedy sketch on the radio where they can't be seen]] or simply because [[BlatantLies "It's realistic."]]

'''Actor #2:''' No, mate, no, no... but I think Preston wants to get off with Loader. And deep down I think Loader wants it as well.

* CompletelyMissingThePoint: The host of ''Gardener's Question Time'' fails to notice the questions being asked of the panel are completely inane and unrelated to gardening at all, like who they'd kill in a garden. When the OnlySaneMan is asked a question about a plant with strange mold on it, the host stops him from answering at all. When the questioner tries to rephrase her question, he shoots in down because "we don't deal in hypotheticals".

* HoYay: {{Invoked}} in one sketch about a new producer and writer who take over ''Preston and Loader'', a mystery series about a Detective Inspector and his partner, and quickly turn it into a gay romance between the two main characters. They insist to the two actors that they're just "bringing out the subtext". One of them disagrees. The other one doesn't.
-->'''Actor #1:''' Are you saying you want to get off with me?!\\
'''Actor #2:''' No, mate, no, no... but I think Preston wants to get off with Loader. And deep down I think Loader wants it as well.

* CaptainErsatz: Monsieur Vauron, who shows up in a few sketches, is clearly Creator/DavidSuchet's version of Series/{{Poirot}} with just enough details filed off to prevent Agatha Christie's estate from showing up with lawyers.
