Lovecraft Creeps into Masterpiece Theatre

So I was watching Masterpiece Theatre last night, an episode of Endeavor entitled "Nocturne."  Had some eerie Gothic touches, so it did.  Then at one point there is mention of "an odd couple" visiting England from some place called "Kingsport, Massachusetts."  Oh, honey, my Lovecraftian antenna tingled with eldritch alertness.  So I found a description of the episode online that listed full cast and characters -- and the bloke visiting from Kingsport is named "Nahum Gardiner"!!!  Blimey!  H. P. Lovecraft is creeping into everything!
