** There was also a ''very'' dark usage of this in "Gorgon's Wood", in which a videotape is found showing what appears to be a young woman having a screaming orgasm. Turns out [[spoiler:the camera had tipped onto its side, and what everyone was seeing was her getting impaled against a tree by a large garden fork.]]

*** There's also a season one character called Doctor Strange, and a Christmas Special set at a homestead called Green Lanterns. Renwick is obviously a DC fan.

* CutAwayGag: In one episode Jonathan and Adam are attending an event and are introduced to a frail old man in a wheelchair whose carer explains to them, "He's been dying to show you his magic trick." Cut to a man attempting a Houdini style escape whilst strung upside down in a body-bag over burning coals.

* ShoutOut: Part of the plot of ''Satan's Chimney'' is centered around the filming of a [[ShowWithinAShow movie]] entitled ''Black Snow''. An obvious homage to the works of David Lynch, it even has a dwarf called "The Man from the World of Shadows" in a nod to TwinPeaks' Man From Another Place.

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGag: In "Miracle in Crooked Lane", Vincent mentions that he was married for years and then his wife ran off with a guy who makes balloon animals at kid's parties. It sounds like a throwaway gag but it turns out [[spoiler: Vincent killed the guy and the episode's mystery was accidentally caused by his attempt to establish an alibi.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ClockTampering: In one episode, the murderer fakes an alibi by adjusting the clock in his house in order to make a respectable Christian missionary (whom he is caring for while she recovers from an injury) believe that the current time was the time when the murder was committed when she saw him in the house.
