  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The title for this episode is an allusion to a line in the chorus of the Beatles song, Strawberry Fields Forever.

      The Chorus goes:

      Let me take you down
      'cause I'm going to
      Strawberry Fields
      Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about
      Strawberry fields forever

    • In the book which Heyes is reading 'Life On The Mississippi' by Mark Twain, an early allusion to the detection of criminals by the use of fingerprints is made; this becomes an important motif in this episode.
