* TheAce: Danny. The guy speaks Latin, has an answer for just about any question any other UCOS member asks him, can play football just by reading books on it and "applying basic physics", can shoot a basket from a long way away, is a good father, manages to get a steady girlfriend despite his know-it-all personality... Frankly, his only flaw is being a stick in the mud about it all.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: In one early episode Gerry is told by a scrap metal merchant that his car, a classic Triumph Stag, is barely even worth scrap metal prices because no one buys them. The joke obviously being on Gerry, since he is only there on enquiries about the case, for driving a rubbish car. Since that episode was made, classic car prices have sky-rocketed and Triumph Stags have become retro-cool with even bad examples making serious money (this is partly due to the discovery that the "problems" Stag engines had was actually due to their radiators not being flushed properly by owners as part of the maintenance regime).

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Averted with Steve replacing Jack, as they are very different characters. Less averted for Dan replacing Brian, as they are both TheSpock and have family issues (though different ones) and for Sasha replacing Sandra.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The reason Waterman is leaving the show - with the departure of all of the other members of the original cast Waterman has gone on record to say that he misses the chemistry he had with them and it's just not the same without them so he's decided to move on too.
