Playing With: Britain Is Only London
Basic Trope: If it's in Britain, it's in London.
  • Straight:
    • Alice lives in London, but generally introduces herself as British.
    • Bob comes over to visit Britain, and never even leaves Central London.
  • Exaggerated: Alice (and every single British character in the show) lives in London.
  • Downplayed:
    • Alice lives in London, but near the city limit.
    • Bob's home and business is indeed, based in London, but he spends a fair bit of his time elsewhere in the UK as well.
  • Justified:
    • Alice is a British immigrant, and she didn't know of any good British city to move to other than London.
    • After a major disaster London is the only city not underwater.
  • Inverted: Bob comes over to visit Britain, and makes sure to not visit London.
  • Subverted: Alice is in fact from London, Ontario, and unintentionally spells "London" wrong. note 
  • Double Subverted: That is what other characters believe, because they are Canadian, and Alice is in fact from Britain.
  • Parodied: Bob comes over to visit Britain, and finds out every place but London is a restricted area.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Alice lives in Britain, but not London.
  • Enforced:
    • The show is intentionally made for kids from London, and doesn't want to teach them about anything outside of their city for some insane reason.
    • "When people think England, they think London. That's where our show will be set."
  • Lampshaded: ???
  • Invoked: Advertisements for moving to Britain specifically direct people to London.
  • Exploited: A character is moving to Britain, and chooses London because he/she knows that most of people important to him will live there.
  • Defied: Alice moves to live in Britain, and makes sure to not come over to London.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: "How does everything in Britain have to take place in London? There is the rest of the country for God's sake!"
