** Another had Matt being shot but ultimately recovering. This was written a year before it actually happened on the show. With a much sadder outcome.

Added DiffLines:

* CrackPairing: Basically anything that isn't Matt/Alesha, or James/Alesha, given that in each case, a genuine mutual attraction existed. But the "out there" ones include Ronnie/Natalie, Ronnie/Matt, Matt/James, and Natalie/Alesha.


Added DiffLines:

* [[OneSceneWonder One Episode Wonder]]: Creator/JohnBoyega as Jamal Clarkson in "Survivor Guilt", who infused his character with so many different emotions--grief, anger, remorse--that one could almost feel sorry for him had he not murdered such a beloved character.

* FirstInstallmentWins: The first batch of 26 episodes with the original cast are considered the best; the replacements in the subsequent seasons while not bad, just didn't have the same chemistry as the original cast.



* SeasonalRot: Starting with Series 5, following the departures of Ben Daniels and Bill Patterson, kicking into high gear in Series 6 with JamieBamber's defection before maxing out in Series 7 with only one original cast member remaining. Their replacements, while not bad actors or characters in their own right, simply did not have the flawless chemistry of the original cast--in particular, Ronnie and Sam never had the rapport that Ronnie and Matt did. As such, the episodes, while still very good overall--"Deal[=/=]"Survivor's Guilt" are unanimously considered among the best--were not as good as those from the first several series.

** In the first episode, Matt and Ronnie have a discussion about the pros and cons of gentrifications -- mainly how low-income people are getting displaced and being forced to move from neighborhood to neighborhood as the rents get too high, Ronnie even comments that in twenty years, Matt will have to live in a caravan because he won't be able to afford anything else. Matt believes it's for the good for the city, and people are just exaggerating the problem since this is really nothing new. Today London is infamous for being a "millionaire's city", with low-to-average simply being unable to afford a flat anywhere without going broke. And amongst other things people have taken to living on house-boats on the Thames simply because it's the only cheap housing they can find. It got worse when a public housing high-rise got on fire killing hundreds of people, later revealed because the local Council refused to pay of adequate fire protection.
* Several in-show examples.

Added DiffLines:

** Inverted by Joe, who was far more popular than Sam. Despite still having to fill the spot that Matt left, he was far better received for not having the negative qualities that Sam possessed.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Yes, Franchise/StarWars fans, [Film/TheForceAwakens Finn]] and Matt's killer are one and the same. At least he managed to redeem himself.
