    • As they approach the house in the car, Jennifer comments that it resembles an early 'Charles Adams'. He was the American cartoonist who was renowned for his dark humour and creating the The Addams Family.

    • Simon explains that the previous master of the house had a quotation that he was particularly fond of; "The evil that men do lives after them, the good oft interred with their bones."

      This is taken from Act Three Scene Two of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
