* PendulumOfDeath: In "A Question of Fear", Colonel Mallory lies down on a bed in a supposedly haunted house. Steel restraints suddenly emerge and cover his chest, locking him in. Then a swinging razor-sharp swinging pendulum descends, moving closer and closer to his neck. Just short of slicing his throat, the pendulum stops. The next morning the restraints and pendulum are gone.

* LigherAndSofter: Some episodes are this compared to the short stories they were based on. "Clean Kills and Other Trophies" for example, ends with the abusive, hunting-obsessed father being turned into a head-on-the-wall by the black magic of a convenient MagicalNegro; in the original story, his son goes insane and does this with a [[OffWithHisHead rather more hands-on approach.]] Or in "Green Fingers," instead of the old lady's clone going after the CorruptCorporateExecutive who had her killed (not present in the story) it instead [[spoiler: kills and replaces the original.]]
