* ClonesArePeopleToo: [[spoiler: The real objective of Hailsham's Gallery was to prove this trope. And... [[Tearjerker it failed.]] Or, almost, it succeeded too well- the world didn't want to consider that clones could be people, because that would mean giving up their safer, disease-free world. So Hailsham was defunded and the clones were pushed back into the shadows.]]

* NothingIsScarier: The book holds back most if not all of the details of the donations, keeping it vague what was actually donated and what procedures were performed.

* ViewersAreMorons: Not exactly, but test audiences for TheMovie were so confused about when the film takes place (a very isolated area a la ''[[spoiler: Film/TheVillage or Film/TheIsland]]''? An alternate universe?) that they didn't pay attention to the characters' relationships or the ending. To fix this, a title card was added (with the author's approval) at the beginning puts the film in [[spoiler: an alternate universe version of TheNineties]].
