"Somewhere off the M59 Motorway lies the sleepy little town of Douglas... This is Douglas."
This Is Douglas provides examples of:
- Every Year They Fizzle Out
- The first arc "Douglas And The Motorway" is one of these.
- Idiosyncratic Episode Naming
- The strips in the second arc "Douglas And The Paradox" are an example of this.
- As are the strips in the third arc "Douglas And Intrigue"
- In the fourth arc "Douglas And Democracy", every strip is named after some piece of great literature.
