* DrugsAreBad: Gray Baker is still alive in Mike's time, and dying of throat cancer from the smoking habit he had [[SmokingIsCool during his reporter days]].

** This inspires a horrified Mike to successfully quit smoking.

* ImposterForgotOneDetail: [[spoiler:The fake fiancé who shows up to take Grace off Mike's hands supports his claim by bringing the matching glove to the one Grace had when she was found. Mike realizes just in time that it matches ''too well'' -- they're both for the same hand.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FilmNoir: [[PlayingWithATrope Plays with]] quite a few of the conventions--Mike is a PrivateDetective, in Los Angeles, drawn into a case involving a woman with a mysterious past. Bonus points for the past actually taking place in TheForties...and [[DeliberatelyMonochrome being shown in black and white.]] The very first scene in particular, with Roman on death row and Gray questioning him, practically screams noir.

* ActingForTwo:
** Kenneth Branagh plays both Mike Church and Roman Strauss, while Emma Thompson plays both Grace and Margaret Strauss.
** In addition, Jo Anderson plays the nun who's pleading Grace's case in the present day, and a starlet who dismisses Roman in the past sequence, while composer Patrick Doyle plays a cop in the present day, and a party-goer in the past sequence.

* ActorAllusion: [[spoiler:Franklin's stutter]] is often assumed to be a call back to Jacobi's role in ''Series/IClaudius'', but actually it's just a nice coincidence; that aspect of the character was settled on well before Jacobi was cast.

** And of course Gray Baker shows how bad an idea it can be, with a nauseating close-up of him smoking through his stoma.
