YMMV: Benidorm
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Leslie, leading to "her" becoming a regular in Series 4.
  • The Character Died with Him: Mel in the Christmas Special. Geoffrey Hutchings passed away while the episode was being written.
    • It is likely that this is what will happen to Donald in light of Kenny Ireland's death.
  • The Scrappy: Joyce. Temple. Savage. She would have been a textbook Replacement Scrappy for ousting the fantastic Chrissy Rock (Janey) as the Solana's manageress, but it goes deeper than her just being new. She is nails-on-a-chalkboard annoying, and painfully obsessed with getting the 4-star rating, despite having absolutely no clue what she's doing. Thankfully she doesn't become the Wesley, because right from the get-go, everyone involved hates her - The staff, the holiday makers...and quite a lot of the viewers.
  • Tear Jerker: Mel's death.
    • Mick's reaction upon hearing about it on the phone. Then Michael, Madge and Janice all crying when Mick tells them.
    • The end to Series 3.
  • The Woobie: Martin is quite probably the most hard-done-to person in the series, being abandoned by his wife by the end of the second series, and used by another girl in the third.
