* CryingWolf: Vera took advantage of this as a contingency in her murder plot. Her young charge had a reputation for "telling stories," so if he survived and claimed she'd encouraged him to swim that far out she could simply play innocent.

** But if you watch the flashback, he wasn't alone when he did it; he was the leader of a four or five man team. Lombard even Lampshades this as to how the story got to U N Owen, saying 'it's amazing how people have an attack of conscience once they're home safe' (approx). What happened to [[ParanoiaFuel the other men who participated?]]

** it's blink-and-you'll-miss-it, but in the 2015 series Blore is shown going over the list of guests he's been given in his letter. He writes 'Fenian' next to Phillip Lombard's name, and at one point (can't remember the exact quote, sorry) claims that Lombard's the obvious suspect because he's Irish, and out to kill all English. Probably, a PragmaticAdaptation / RealLifeWritesThePlot due to Aiden Turner being Irish.

*** the BBC adaptation has the group bursting into Marsters' room to find Rogers all but under the bed. When questioned (at gunpoint, mind) Rogers brings out a folded-up camp-bed. They'd stored it under Marsters' bed originally, because 'young gentlemen never look under the beds'; he intended to use it in a spare room. Given how he treated his wife during the brief time we see her alive, it's possible that Ethel insisted on separate beds. Or even that it was simply the only below-stairs bedroom with enough bed/s for two people. (Wargrave didn't want two of his killers/victims to have easy access for hanky-panky??)

** The video game introduces a subplot exposing [[spoiler: Anthony Marston]] as a Nazi spy. The character is dead by the time this is discovered, so is never confronted about this additional offense.

** In the Russian adaptation it's Vera who's callously lenient towards Lombart's crime (abandoning two dozen native Africans to their deaths), because "Well, they were only negroes", and it's ''Emily'' who retorts that: "Black or white, they're our brothers."
