  • Allusions

    • Carpenter: We've come a long way from Colonel Mustard in the Den with the Rope haven't we?

      An obvious reference to the popular board game, Cluedo (or Clue as it was renamed in America), where people have to discover whodunnit, where and with what! In England the Den would have been the Study. The allusion is to the fact that we no longer have to take a best guess, but that science can pinpoint the culprit based on a number of factors, such as fingerprints, DNA etc.
