As the Curator of the Toobworld Dynamic, I've come to expect most Toobworld divergences from the "reality" of the Trueniverse to come from science fiction and fantasy TV series - androids, aliens, and demi-gods living among the humans, secret lunar colonies, talking animals, talking vehicles, and fictional locations and historical events.
I didn't think one would be found in a murder mystery... and from Sweden at that.
'THE INSPECTOR AND THE SEA'
"THE DYING DANDY"
When art dealer Egon Wallin was found murdered in his gallery, the body had been draped in a painting by Nils Dardel - "The Dying Dandy". But somebody had cut out the head of the main character in the painting and stuck Wallin's head through it.
"The Dying Dandy" is a real painting which Dardel did in 1918. Up until recently, the sale of "The Dying Dandy" held the record price for the sale of a painting by a Swedish artist.
I kept expecting the police would have had the remains of the painting authenticated, only to discover that it was a forgery. But it never came up.
So, in Toobworld, this world-famous painting no longer exists. And that's the biggest divergence we've seen in the Earth Prime-Time art world since "La Gioconda" (the "Mona Lisa") as treated in 'Doctor Who', 'My Favorite Martian', and 'The Sarah Jane Adventures'.
I said above that "The Dying Dandy" is a world-famous painting. But I had never heard of it, nor of Nils Dardel before seeing this episode. So once again television has proven to be a teaching tool.
