This show has examples of:

  • Ambiguously Gay: Andy. But only with a gun to his head of course.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Julie.
  • British Brevity: The first season consists of eight episodes. According to Word of God, the forthcoming second and third seasons will contain thirteen episodes each.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Julie towards Gavin, who is apparently oblivious to her feelings for him, and Kieran and Katie towards each other.
    • Julie finally breaks in the 2013 Christmas Episode when she mistakes Gavin encouraging her to take a new job as asking her out, and they kiss. She later tells everyone at their Christmas Dinner, and runs off crying.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Margaret.
  • Cringe Comedy: Fairly often. Julie's work interview is by far the best example.
  • The Ditz: Leighton.
  • Jerkass: Colin, who is so lazy, rude and unhelpful to customers it's a wonder he managed to get employed at Valco. Julie also falls into this territory on a regular basis.

  • Offscreen Breakup: Keiran begins Series 3 living with his parents after his divorce with Emma
  • Put on a Bus: Andy and Kieran in Series 3
  • The Pollyanna: Leighton.
  • Too Much Information: Lisa loves this trope.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: Kieran and Katie, in spades. The only thing stopping them from getting together is the fact that Kieran already has a girlfriend (and later fiancée), who is incredibly controlling of him.
  • Unsatisfiable Customer: Surprisingly rare considering the setting, but this does pop up occasionally.


How well does it match the trope?
