- The character of Detective Robert Goren (文森特·多诺费奥) is based on the popular fictional character of Sherlock Holmes, but instead of relying upon physical evidence like Holmes, Goren focuses on psychology to identify the perpetrators, whom he often draws into confessing or yielding condemning evidence. Goren also works with a John Watson like partner in Detective Alexandra Eames (凯瑟琳·厄布) and works for Inspector Lestrade type commanding officers Captain James Deakins (杰米·谢尔丹) and Captain Danny Ross (埃里克·博高森) The character of Nicole Wallace (奥利薇亚·阿波) is a direct attempt to play on the part of Sherlock Holmes' female antagonist Irene Adler, also known as "The Woman". Wallace is employed as a "Professor of Literature" during her first appearance, which could be a parallel to Holmes' nemesis Professor Moriarty.
