** A wad of thick ones to Creator/AntonChekhov. The women who equip Vimes against the werewolves are a mash-up of references to Chekhov's works: they're three sisters, who are stuck in an old house with a [[Theatre/TheCherryOrchard Cherry Orchard]] and used to have an old Uncle named [[Theatre/UncleVanya Vanya]]. Their specific characterisations are also a mash-up of Chekhov's female characters from those books.

* StealthPun: Angua's mother is an unkind woman, as well as (being a werewolf) a female dog. In other words, she's a bitch.

* NobleBigot: Albrecht Albrechtsson by Rhys, who considers him a WorthyOpponent. By ''Discworld/RaisingSteam it becomes more clear that he's a conservative instead of reactionary like [[spoiler:Dee or Ardent]].

Added DiffLines:

* FriendsAreChosenFamilyArent: Some of her friends and colleagues are perhaps a little surprised by Angua's reactions to her family showing up, although they get the point soon enough; she's the WhiteSheep in a family of man-eating werewolves.

* SpyCam: Among the various spy items hidden in the Ankh-Morpork Embassy is "an iconograph small enough to fit in a pocket". ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' iconographs contain an imp that paints pictures, the spycam version has a "nano-imp" that costs over a hundred dollars.

** Wolfgang's chosen symbol is a wolf's head biting a mouthful of lightning bolts. [[spoiler: He is later killed when he bites a powerful firework- not lighting, but close.]]

* AtTheOperaTonight: Vimes and Sybil attend a truncated version of the famous dwarf opera, ''Bloodaxe and Ironhammer'', which depicts the origins of the Scone of Stone. Sybil knows it very well and Vimes is hung up on which partner was which (it's a love story, and they're both ''dwarfs''.)
