* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The score is composed by Music/EricClapton and Michael Kamen, so this is pretty much a given. The score later won the BAFTA award for Best Original Television Music.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment -- "Azure". Police terminology indicating that the room is bugged, which makes it a [[SarcasmMode wonderful]] name for an operating system.

* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome -- Darius Jedburgh [[spoiler: brings some of his freshly stolen plutonium to a conference at Gleneagles Hotel ''and makes it go critical '''in his hands''','' irradiating himself and [[BigBad Grogan]]]] with a bright flash of pure awesome.
** It should be noted that [[spoiler: Jedburgh was already fatally irradiated from spending time around the Hot Cell in Northmoor. He had nothing to lose by causing the criticality, though it doesn't detract from the awesome one bit.]]
* OffTheShelfFX: It is rather amusing to discover, via the making-of documentary on the DVD set, that the plutonium containers shown on screen were just cheap storage bins bought from Woolworths, with nuclear warning trefoil stickers applied.

** In the first episode it's mentioned Craven's wife died of Cancer not long ago. Some 15 years later Bob Peck himself lost the battle with the disease, making this off hand comment rather awkward in hindsight.

* YourMileageMayVary -- not on the series itself, but specifically on viewers' reactions to Craven gently kissing the business end of his daughter's vibrator while he's going through her belongings. For some it's a touching moment of grief coupled with [[ComingOfAge his realisation of how grown up his daughter had become]], whereas for others it's just [[{{Squick}} gross and innappropriate]].
