* NoAnimalsWereHarmed: Averted in-universe. "I took the amusing precaution of dissecting the cat!" Note that it was ''alive'' [[BrickJoke in the first episode]].
** Averted in-universe again in Series 2; a big deal is made of the fact that the bank robbers shot the owl. Why the bank has an owl is {{Hand Wave}}d but it's implied to be for security purposes.

* MisterSandmanSequence: Parodied when a woman who's being interrogated unveils information about the killer's background to the detectives for something that happened in 1996, but the screen actually shows a litany of pop culture, fashion, events, and people iconic to the 1980s much to the confusion of the cops. It turns out she was watching a nostalgia program on the telly during her flashback.

Added DiffLines:

* WalkAndTalk: Spoofed in ''A Touch Of Cloth III'' where a sequence of walking-and-talking is constantly lampshaded by the characters as only being to make this fairly boring {{Exposition}} scene look more exciting and they aren't actually going anywhere. Also, as they walk through the police station, it actually ''[[WraparoundBackground loops]]''. In a later scene, posters on the walls even display images fitting what they're talking about as they go past them.
