* [[spoiler: ForgottenFallenFriend]]: Despite his importance as a character and his relationship with Ronnie, Matt is never explicitly mentioned again after the episode dealing with [[spoiler: his murder]]. Even when another of Ronnie's friends, [[spoiler: DI Wes Layton, is shot and killed]], there is still no mention of him and how similar the two events were for Ronnie. The closest reference we get is that Ronnie's grandson, born on the day [[spoiler: Matt died]], is named Matthew. Coincidentally, this isn't the [[Series/HoratioHornblower first time]] this happened to one of Creator/JamieBamber's characters...
