    Trivia (18)

    • Possible goof: The finger of Bishop was cut off, brought to evidence analyzed about the cutting edges and then reattached? This process would have needed some amount of time, so the finger might already have been dead.

    • The finger with a ring attached shown at the beginning of the show as "evidence" in the case turned out to be Bishop's finger. He bought the ring from a street vendor.

    • Goof: How did the bookie know that the bet came from the Howe's trainer, rather than Camelorka? The business would be cash only, and a paper trail would be minimised, and what paperwork there needed to be would be subtle and incognito.

    • After running the blood test of the blood found on the bottle against the blood of the deceased, assuming that they used a DNA test, they would (more likely than not) know the gender of the person who bled upon the bottle. Why would they need a DNA sample from the wife, mistress, and all the co-workers of the deceased, when they only needed samples of the suspects who are the same gender as the bleeder?

    • Goof: The voice over names the car type, with the impact on the left side, as Ford Festiva, but it's obviously different car shown. The shown car looks like some Honda Accord from the 80's.

    • Goof: The car Bishop and Cole use in the end is the same, they crushed a few hours before (same licence plate). Sure it's possible that the car was fixed in this short time, but unlikely.

    • Goof: When Cole and Bishop start to escort the other car to the hospital, they activate the klaxon, but why isn't the flashlight running. These devices are connected together. This shows that the sound effect was added later.

    • Goof: Sen's wife tells Cole and Bishop that she once tried to get a job as engineer in the US, before she got pregnant and still this high educated woman doesn't speak a word of English?

    Allusions (3)

    • The title of this episode takes its name from the Agatha Christie mystery Ten Little Indians, in which ten seemingly unassociated individuals find themselves on an island, where they are killed off, one by one.

    • Cole: Who is Moby? Moby is a famous musician especially known in the electronic and techno scene. His biggest hits were in the 90s.

    • Bishop: That would be Danny Kaye. Danny Kaye was an American actor, singer, and comedian in the 1950s-60s. There were rumours that he had a homosexual relationship with a fellow male actor.

  • I've only missed one episode of this show, and I'm glad that I've got them all on video so I can watch them over again.

  • You are given "the evidence" at the beginning of the show. Can you guess who the killer is?
