    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Ron Donachie, who plays the recurring character of DCI Andrew Ross, is listed sixth in the closing credits among the regular cast, rather than the traditional spot for guest police officers, which is immediately after the main cast.

      • According to the list of dates that the victims of the killer went missing, Tina Pope disappeared on 20 August 2002 which corresponds with the broadcast date for Episode 036 in which she is reported missing. If the next date, 17 September, refers to the date of Miriam Wade's disappearance, then we can assume the next date on the list, 29 October, refers to the fourth victim, Lucy Corrigan, corresponding to the discovery of her body in Episode 057 broadcast on 30 October 2002. We don't see the next date in full just that it is the 21st. Presumably this is 21 November and refers to the disappearance of Vicki Casson, who was found in Episode 063, broadcast on 20 November.

        Given the close alignment between the stated dates of disappearance and broadcast dates, it is odd that Liz Chambers is shown as disappearing in June. She didn't appear on screen until July and was reported missing in Episode 028 on 23 July 2002.
