** In episode "Cut Up", the murder victim was accidentally killed during a fight, or at least that's what the murderer said. The guy who killed her was her kind-hearted roommate who was in love with her. She slapped him because he stepped into the bathroom when she was taking a shower. He slapped her back and his blow was much stronger than he had indended.

* HotScoop: Andrea Skopcova is a very attractive TV reporter and a single mother of two who dates Capt. Petr Andel. She's slightly unusual in that she has a mole in the Police Department who gives her information on open cases, and her reports often complicate investigation. She is also willing to shoot morally wrong reports, like accusing an honest cop of being dirty when her boss is not satisfied with her work that has portrayed the Police as helpful public service.

* YouHave48Hours: In episode "48 Hours", Capt. Martin Prazak arrests a suspect even tough he was instructed only to follow him and find out his identity. However, Prazak knew that he was about to attack his next victim, a frail old guy who has just collected his monthly pension from the post office. The suspect has no ID and refuses to speak. His fingerprints are not in the Czech database. They can hold him only for two days without telling him what are the charges and they have in fact less than 48 hours because they lost some time in transporting him to the station and they have to prepare his release with a public prosecutor in advance. Their only lead is a train ticket from Kladno to Prague and the fact that he might be a foreigner from eastern Europe as he "might have hissed something in Russian or Slovak" when he was being arrested.

** A tragic case happens in "Key Evidence". The victims in the episode are an Arab man, his Czech wife and their small son. The man was involved in shady business and organized crime, possibly with drugs. The team has two versions for the investigation -- either they wanted to kill the whole family as a threat, or they were just after the guy and his wife and son were uncomfortable witnesses. [[spoiler: It turns out they were actually killed by the woman's teenage son. He wanted to murder his abusive stepfather, less so his mother. However, when the elder son and his mother had a fight, he attacked her with a knife and his little half-brother wanted to defend her. He accidentally swung his knife at him, too.]]

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The only lady that is in a way part of the team is [=JUDr.=] Svihlikova who is a public prosecuter. She's present at video reconstructions or line-up recognitions, and she's a worthy ally helping them with legal stuff. Other female characters are family members, secretaries, witnesses, suspects or victims. And then there is a female TV reporter who is more of an antagonist. It reflects the situation at the real-life 1st department (but other homicide departments in Czechia do have policewomen in important positions).

The 1st department is an elite unit of the Police of the Czech Republic with the solve rate for murders at about 95 percent. The department deals with cases of murder, attempted murder, manslaughter and other serious crimes.

The series was co-written by Josef Mares (a real policeman and head of the 1st department) and Jan Malinda who works as a journalist. ''Cases of the 1st Department'' can boast of being extraordinarily authentic and precise in the description of police work, slang, methods of investigation, co-operation with other police departments, public prosecution or forensic experts in present-day Czechia. The police often know quite soon who committed the crime, but they have to figure out how to bust them, get them to confess and find conclusive evidence.

* CityNoir: Downplayed. Prague is not absolutely horrible and dark here, but the city looks wonderfully shabby, gray, rainy or cold. It's noticeable especially if you compare it to Prague's usual idealized depictions set in sunny picturesque streets or beautiful historical palaces. Some murders happened in ghettos and poor neighbourhoods, and even the police building looks almost pitiful compared to high-tech sets of other police procedurals.
