Added DiffLines:

* BreakoutCharacter: Nikki Alexander, played by Emilia Fox. She didn't appear until part way through Season 8, as part of an ensemble cast, but most people now regard her as the star of the show; she usually gets the most focus in the stories, her name appears first in the opening credits and she's the most prominently featured character in advertising. Some people who started watching in the mid-2000's are surprised to learn Amanda Burton was originally the main character.

Could be considered a UK version of the ''Series/{{CSI}}'' franchise, but lacks its flashiness (although it has elements of the wider investigating role); it also predates it. Like ''WakingTheDead'' (which predates ''Series/{{CSI}}'' as well), it is done in two-parters, with each story shown over two days in the same week.

British crime/forensic series, running from 1996 onwards, now in its nineteenth series, making it the fourth oldest currently airing crime drama in the world and the longest that isn't German (''{{Tatort}}'' is the winner, the German show having run since 1970).

* {{BrotherSisterIncest}}: [[spoiler:the Doshi siblings in "Squaring the Circle" and teenage siblings in "Domestic" (though in defence of the latter, they didn't realise they were blood related).]]

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Played with. Most of the main characters aren't really that bothered by grisly crime scenes and horrific murders, because it's part of their job, though there are occasionally cases that get to them, [[KidsAreInnocent usually if there's kids involved]].

* {{Badass}}: Jack Hodgson moonlights as a cage-fighter, which tends to come in very handy against criminals (even fully armed and/or much physically stronger ones.)

** A murder suspect in "In a Lonely Place" finds out the hard way that openly admitting to hitting and then insulting a recently murdered woman around Jack is a bad idea.
** In "Redhill", the usually levelheaded Leo punches a corrupt prison in the face for threatening his girlfriend.
