Precious Things

Do you reckon that the ‘Precious Things’ coveted by Tubbs & Edward in BBC series THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN is a reference to THE SMITHS song ‘THE QUEEN IS DEAD’ (wherein are the lyrics: "We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry / And talk about precious things")?

It only just occurred to me that it might.

But then there's also a Tori Amos song called Precious Things - or so I heard.

Daft to ask? Aye. But someone might know.
