Republic of Doyle

CBC (ended 2014)




  • Season 6 Episode 4: The Driver

  • (Walter hands Mal a note from Jake)
    Mal: Saul's after Sloan.  We've got to get Sloan out of school and here. Now.
    Rose: Oh, here we go; Sloan.
    Walter: Yeah, relax, relax.  I already did it; she's safe.  I locked her up at the court house.

    Walter used to be a Crown Attorney, although recently, he seems to have gone back to the Defence side of criminal law.  He is, in this episode, representing Jake on his murder charges.  Whether he is Crown or Defence, he would not have access to the keys to the cells at the court house; and would not be able to bring in a random person off the streets and have them locked up there.  The police would be the ones with the keys, and any officer who valued their job would not lock up a person who was not lawfully imprisoned and appearing in court.

  • Season 5 Episode 15: Expansion

  • Jake: I know where I recognize this guy... William L. Chafe & Sons... the store!  We busted him, he was taking dirty pictures of women while they were changing.

  • Season 2 Episode 3: A Stand Up Guy

  • Jake: Look at that hair.  Catfud... nothing says "80's" like a Mount Pearl curl, huh?

    The handbill that Jake picks up advertising Catfud shows them as appearing at a club on Wednesday, August 27th; this means the appearance was either 1980 or 1986.

  • Jake: Is your name Alfonso?
    Ryan: What? My name's Ryan... Ryan Brenton.  If you don't believe me, ask my dad; he's a Supreme Court judge.

  • Jill, the date that Nikki sets up for Jake, is played by Janelle Hickey; she is a crew member on the show (assistant to Mr. Vatcher).

    The Rooms is located in St. John's, Newfoundland, and is a cultural space that includes a museum, art gallery, and the Provincial archives, bringing history, heritage and artistic expression together.

  • In the scene where Wolf slams Jake's head into the prison phone, Jake's injury is blood coming from his left eyebrow, and in the first shot, the blood has trickled down to his cheekbone. The camera switches to Wolf, then back to Jake, and the blood is now only down to his eye level.

  • Season 1 Episode 12: The Fall of the Republic

  • According to Jake's phone, Christian called from 1-709-555-0133, and he was located at 16 Signal Hill Road, St. John's, NL. When Jake arrives there, it is a large, stand-alone, dark-coloured house. However, according to Google Maps, this address is one small house in a line of houses that are either connected or built extremely close to each other. The houses in the area are beiges and yellows.

  • After leaving the site of the apparent murder, Jake drives off to find Christian. When he does, Christian is standing opposite the Quidi Vidi Brewing Company building; this is located at 36 Barrows Road, St. John's, NL, and is just over 2 km away from 16 Signal Hill Road.

  • Christian's rehab 28-day coin is from Lakeview Outreach.

  • Des: 22, 25, 10, 19, 18, 31... starting line-up from the 1972 Habs.

    The 1972 Montreal Canadiens (The Habs) starting line-up included #22: Steve Shutt, forward; #25: Jacques Lamaire, forward; #10: Guy Lafleur, right wing; #19: Larry Robinson, defence; #18: Serge Savard, defence. However, there was no #31 in that year (1971 - 1972). From the 2009 - 2010 year, there is a #31: Carey Price, who plays goal.

  • Leslie: Was there somebody that would be renting the house using your company credit card?
    Tommy: Not that I'm aware of. Which card?

    Following this exchange, Leslie rips the page out of her notebook and hands it to Tommy to show him the credit card number. If this is her official police notebook, she should not be doing this, as the notebook pages are numbered and police officers have to account for all pages. This is to stop officers from falsifying evidence, or getting rid of evidence that they don't like.

  • Christian: Tommy Winsor is like the Bernie Madoff of Newfoundland. They take down-payments on properties, they invest in bigger and better properties. The whole thing's about to collapse.

    Bernie Madoff (Apr. 29, 1938 - ) was convicted in March, 2009 of 11 crimes in which he bilked thousands of investors out of billions of dollars in a Ponzi scheme; he admitted the scheme started as early as 1990, although authorities believe it may have begun earlier. In June, 2009, he was sentenced to 150 years in jail.

  • In the scene in which Christian is picked up while hitch hiking, the car passes a sign saying "Welcome to L'Anse au Loup Labrador". This is on the mainland, near the Quebec border.

There is actually a Halliday's Meat Market at 103 Gower St. (at the corner of Kings Road) in St. John's. The exterior shots of Halliday's Meat Market in the episode use the real building.

  • When the rock comes through the window, it hits Des in the side of the face, in his right temple area, and knocks him over. When he gets up, he is holding the back of his head near the top. When the bridesmaid hands him a bag of ice, he puts it to his temple.
