YMMV: Blackout

Subjective Tropes for the Game Show:


Subjective Tropes for the Novel:

  • Fridge Brilliance: Other than her very early books, Willis's novels are very firmly divided into the categories of comedy and tragedy. Except this one - which is it? It turns out Sir Godfrey has been telling us all along in his stage instructions "This is a comedy, not a tragedy!" and ultimately asks this of Polly (knowing she knows the future) who tells him "It is a comedy."
  • Tear Jerker: 50% of the books are tearjerkers. The rest are moments of heartwarming and awesome.
    • Of particular note is Sir Godfrey's goodbye ("Is it a comedy or a tragedy?") and Eileen's experiences at VE Day.
