Added DiffLines:

* CompromisingMemoirs: One episode dealt with a memoirs book from an ex-spy.


Added DiffLines:

* HighClassGlass: In one episode, Danny has to impersonate his friend Brett and portrays him as an UpperClassTwit, naturally wearing a monocle that keeps popping off.


Added DiffLines:

* PungeonMaster: Just about every character in the German dub. In comparison with the rest of the cast, though, it's Danny Wilde.


Added DiffLines:

* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: Unlike most of the other people in the series Brett tends to call Danny by his full name of Daniel. The nickname is used when Brett sees Danny in crisis or injured:
** In "Death In The Family" Brett called out ‘Danny!’ when he found Danny unconscious after an intruder on the Sinclair estate attacked him.
** In "Someone Waiting" Brett again used ‘Danny’ when he found Danny sprawled in the garage while the pair is investigating who is trying to sabotage Brett’s return to racing.
** In "Angie Angie", during one of their rare arguments, Brett was trying to convince Danny that his childhood friend, Angie, was involved in less than honest activities. It's very telling that Brett was addressing his friend by the seldom used nickname the entire time.
** Subverted twice in "Five Miles To Midnight" in which Brett used the nickname without Danny being injured when he did it. [[spoiler: Unless one counts the episode's plot of the pair trying to escort a 'gangster' to a safe haven with other gangsters dogging their trail as a crisis.]]

* HiddenDepths: Chivers, the [[TheJeeves butler]] in the episode "Read and Destroy", is old, portly, slightly senile, not the fastest guy on the field and generally a completely harmless bloke... until he suddenly pops up out of nowhere to hold an armed spy at gunpoint that was threatening Brett and Danny. He later ups the ante even further by revealing his criminal past including his impressive lockpicking skills, which come in very handy to resolve the case of the week.
