  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • Vera and Lombard's relationship. Was there some genuine affection on either or both of their parts, or were they just manipulating each other's sympathies for their own ends? Was Lombard's pleading for Vera to trust his belief that the murderer was neither one of them sincere or was he just trying to save his own skin? Furthermore, was Vera's proposal to Wargrave to frame Lombard for the murders simply the desperate plea of a woman searching for any way to persuade Wargrave not to kill her or the conniving words of a Manipulative Bitch who had never truly loved Lombard?

    • In the book, Hugo told Wargrave about what happened with Vera while Drowning My Sorrows. In the miniseries, we don't have any evidence that he turned to alcohol after the inquest. So did he tell Wargrave what happened in the hopes that the judge could bring justice for his nephew?
  • Catharsis Factor: Wargrave leaving Vera to die becomes this after we see that she did murder Cyril in a cold, calculated fashion: by telling him to swim for the farthest rock, and then languishing on the sand happily waiting. As Hugo points out, with Cyril's weak lungs and Vera's athleticism, he knew that Cyril couldn't have outrun or outswam her, and if he could prove it, he would make sure that Vera would be hanged. Well, Wargrave managed to avenge Cyril.
  • Moment of Awesome: Hugo Hamilton's short "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Vera. As he says, he can't prove that she murdered his nephew so that he could inherit, but if he could, he would see her hang.

  • Narm: Blore's death. Instead of having a marble clock shaped like a bear dropped on his head, Blore is stabbed to death with a carving knife while the killer apparently wears a polar bear rug like a poncho! Regardless of whether the killer could actually see out the open mouth, without the blurry-edged screen that implies that Blore thinks he's hallucinating it would look utterly ridiculous, instead of WTF?
  • Paranoia Fuel: Lombard's flashback to his crime shows he wasn't alone when he did it; he was the leader of a four or five man team. Lombard even Lampshades this as to how the story got to U. N. Owen, saying 'it's amazing how people have an attack of conscience once they're home safe' (approx). What happened to the other men who participated?

How well does it match the trope?
