* TheScrappy: Lesley Vickerage's Helen, who is by and large considered a whiny, selfish milquetoast. Catherine Russell's incarnation of the character is generally considered likeable enough[[note]]the chief complaint being "she isn't Emma"[[/note]], but virtually everyone wants Emma Fielding (from the pilot) back.

* RelationshipWritingFumble: If the writers wanted viewers to believe Havers and Lynley aren't falling head-over-heels in love throughout the course of the show, they ''really'' shouldn't have had them call each other [[spoiler:their reason to get up in the morning]], or given them the infamous CryIntoChest at the end of "[[Recap/InspectorLynleyS04E01InDivineProportion In Divine Proportion]]" that looks like nothing so much as a man comforting his traumatized lover. Many, ''many'' fans have pointed out that Lynley has much better chemistry - and a much healthier relationship - with Barbara than he ever did with [[SatelliteLoveInterest Helen]].

* FanPreferredCouple: Lynley and Havers, naturally. The fandom outliers are those who ''don't'' ship it! The most notable, however, has to be [[Creator/NathanielParker the star of the show himself]], who declared outright that he wanted to see the show end with [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Lynley and Havers holding hands and walking into the sunset]].
