* CutShort - Mackintosh's disappearance ended the series on a cliffhanger, with [[spoiler:Willie Caine mortally wounded.]] Rumours suggest [[spoiler:Caine would have returned as a wheelchair-bound D. Ops]] in Series Four, presumably with Neil [[spoiler: similarly promoted]].

* DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent - {{Defied}}; [[spoiler:Tyler says he considered becoming a triple agent after the KGB turned him, but decided it wouldn't help his situation any - he reflects sadly that at least ''someone'' trusts a double agent, but ''nobody'' trusts a triple.]]

* OneLetterName / EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep - The head of SIS is always referred to only as "C"; it takes an entire season to learn his real name and even after that nobody uses it.

* CIAEvilFBIGood: Inverted. The CIA are generally portrayed as helpful, and in particular Burnside has a very close working relationship with the CIA's London section chief, Jeff Ross. The show has a ConspiracyTheorist view of American domestic politics that looks peculiar to American eyes, and the FBI is part of it. According to Ross (and apparently, this was really [[AuthorOnBoard according to Mackintosh]]), the FBI was behind the Kennedy and King assassinations.
