* RippedFromTheHeadlines: Many of the cases-of-the-week. Also the subplot about Mo dating a woman senior police officer was heavily influenced by the much-reported real life case of a woman senior police officer who sued her force for sex discrimination and was falsely rumoured (probably a deliberate smear by her enemies) to be gay.

* EnforcedMethodActing: Scenes with regulars going undercover as neo-Nazis were covertly filmed at a real far-right-wing political gathering in Belgium. The fairly-left-wing actors' fear and discomfort weren't wholly simulated.



* FanNickname: "Between the Loins" or "Between the Sheets" due to some sex scenes that at the time were a bit more explicit than usual in the genre.

''Between the Lines'' was a PoliceProcedural shown by TheBBC in 1992-1994. It was created by writer J C Wilsher and Executive Producer Tony Garnett. Almost uniquely among TV police series, it was a sympathetic depiction of the Complaints Investigation Bureau, the [[UsefulNotes/ScotlandYard Metropolitan Police's]] InternalAffairs section, accepting the necessity for investigation into police corruption and brutality while retaining some cynicism about the motivation and effectiveness of it.

The final series, subsequently lamented by executive producer Tony Garnett as an example of FranchiseZombie-ism, made a GenreShift into political thriller territory, and ended with Clark and Naylor apparently being killed in an explosion while trying to stop an arms deal between [[TheTroubles Ulster Loyalist paramilitaries]] and [[ThoseWackyNazis European neo-Nazi extremists]].
