* HeyItsThatGuy: A bit part in this comes as standard on every British actor's CV, and the has given parts to more later-established actors than any other in the history of British television, so there are a '''lot''' of these of many different calibres. There's...
** [[Film/{{Titanic}} Rose.]]
** [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Will.]]
** [[{{Series/Heroes}} Mohinder.]]
** [[Series/UglyBetty Christina.]]
** [[Series/{{Friends}} Emily.]]
** [[Series/{{ER}} Neela.]]
** [[Film/EmpireRecords Rex Manning.]]
** LondonGangster -- particularly {{Shout Out}}s to the RealLife Kray twins.
** [[Series/DoctorWho Mickey and Martha, plus two doctors.]]
** [[Series/AbsolutelyFabulous Saffy.]]
** [[TwoPintsOfLagerAndAPacketOfCrisps Gaz.]]
** [[Series/{{Neighbours}} Paul Robinson.]]
** [[Series/{{Emmerdale}} Sadie King.]]

* IAmNotSpock: This applies to Michael French (aka Nick Jordan), Derek Thompson (aka Charlie Fairhead, who is probably ''the'' iconic character of the show), Will Sharpe (Yuki), Sunetra Sarker (Zoe) and the anonymous blonde actress who plays Kath (identity of actress is unknown for now).
** [[http://www.uk.castingcallpro.com/view.php?uid=250209 Amy Wren]], who appeared as Kelly Oswald in the episode ''The Enemy Within''.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Only Series 1-3 have been released on DVD to celebrate the show's twentieth anniversary with no plans for any more despite petitions.
* OldShame: Matt Bardock (aka Jeff Collier the paramedic)'s appearance as a youth responsible for arson back in 1993. That's in the fan's opinion anyway.
** After dealing with the case of a private dancer who'd been unknowingly taking stimulants disguised as vitamin pills provided by the club owner, new-ish paramedic Tamsin [[spoiler: reveals that she knew what was happening because she used to be a dancer working for the same club owner.]]
* TheOtherDarrin: Seemed to be a thing with children of staff. Happened to Tally once, although in hindsight this was probably for the better. Louis is by far the worst offender, having been played by about four different actors.
* StarMakingRole: For [[http://www.uk.castingcallpro.com/view.php?uid=250209 Amy Wren]], who appeared as Kelly Oswald in the episode ''The Enemy Within''.
* ThrowItIn: The extras' dialogue is ad-libbed, apparently.
