A cow is accidentally blown up in season 5 episode 6 around the 20 minute mark. Bits of the cow are seen splattered around the walls but there's nothing beyond that. There is also a scene where someone chugs a drink with a live fish in it in season 3 episode 2.

In series 2, a main character is stalked. This is the subplot for episode 1 and the main plot for episode 2. The stalker then continues to feature in a secondary role throughout the rest of series 2. There continue to be several stalker-like behaviours and their past stalking is brought up by other characters. In series 4, episode 2, it is discovered a main character was stalked in the recent past. The stalker is no longer stalking and only "aftermath" is shown (e.g. photos and belongings)

kitsebbet's comment was correct except about Chris and Angie. Chris was the one trying to convince Angie to hook up with him, and she did resist at first. Their relationship is consensual and romantic at times, although Chris can be a bit of a creep. The only way this particular part is relevant anyway is that Angie is a parental figure for many of the characters (mostly Chris, who probably seeks a relationship with her as a result of his own mother abandoned him, leaving him wanting for a maternal figure in his life. Unfortunately, probably not the most appropriate considering Angie is his teacher).

both explicit and implied, many of the characters have drug/alcohol dependence which isn't directly addressed but is prominent

in series 4, a different character is admitted to a private psych hospital following a suicide attempt, and then again after an additional psychotic episode. she is shown in a medical hospital to begin with, but later on has a private room in a private mental institution, where she can have visitors and see people doing outside activities such as bouncing on bouncy balls. it is shown to be almost too dreamy/unnervingly serene

the character of JJ is emotionally tormented by characters for his Autism, including being told he's unworthy and unable to be with the girl he likes. This primarily takes place in series 4. He also suffers psychiatric negligence due to his Autism.

a few slurs are used against lesbians throughout series 3/4, although not usually in very hostile contexts. another character in those seasons also experiences a fair bit of homophobia from her mother. the f slur and t slur are also used a few times by a bully in seasons 5-6. 90% of the hate speech towards characters comes from unsympathetic and/or minor characters though

*this comment only covers slurs. There are other ableist incidences such as the use of phrases and idioms, as well as ableist behaviour* *this comment is a work in progress as I watch the programme. There was quite a lot of slurs used casually in series 1, but I do not have the episodes or timestamps* In series 2 episode 2, around the 30 minute mark, a physically disabled person is called an ableist slur by their caregiver in an argument. In series 2 episode 10, around the 40 minute mark, and ablebodied person uses an ableist slur to insult their ablebodied friend in a joking way. In series 3 episode 3, an able bodied person uses an ableist slur to insult their ablebodied and neurodivergent friends defensively. In series 5, episode 2, around the 15 minute mark, an ablebodies person uses an ableist slur to insult their ablebodied friend In series 5, episode 5 around the 17 minute mark, an abliebodied person uses an ableist slur to describe their ablebodied friends. One of the friends then repeats the slur

pretty much every individual series/generation ends on a bittersweet note - somebody usually dies or has died and some couples break up but others stay together and some characters get happier endings than others

In season 5 episode 1, a character pulls a replica of a revolver out and aims it towards another character. Nothing happens and the gun is never seen or mentioned again. Off-screen gun violence with real guns are present towards the last episode of season 7.

A minor character is forcibly drowned and dies. The full death is shown on-screen in season 7 episode 5 and happens during a meeting by an indoor swimming pool. The assailant lets the victim up for air for a little bit and drowns him again over and over.

off the top of my head: in series 2 episode 9 a character haemorrhages on screen and you see blood come from his nose/mouth. in series 3 episode 8 a character hits another character over the head with a rock during a fight and for a few episodes afterwards the character who was hit has visible scarring/injury. in series 4 episode 5 a character attempts suicide via a violent method and some blood is seen in the aftermath. in series 4 episode 7 a character is beaten to death offscreen and blood is seen splattering the door behind which this occurs. in series 5 episode 6 a cow is blown up although not a lot is seen onscreen. in series 6 episode 1 there is a car accident and multiple characters are seen badly injured/bloody afterwards. in series 6 episode 6 there are some violent fights and people get beaten up, blood is shed. in series 6 episode 8 a character punches another character multiple times and gives her a nosebleed. in skins: rise (final two episodes of series 7) there is a lot of violence/blood generally, especially towards the climax.
