Trivia

The final scene with Morse looking through the window at the debased Thursday yucking it up with his cronies is reminiscent of the final scene in the 1953 animated Animal Farm where the pigs are viewed through a window transforming into men. See more »

Goofs

The blue Rover 2000 car that has crashed into a lorry at the end of the episode has a registration number ending in L. That's a 1972-73 registration number, and the episode is set in the late 1960s. See more »

Quotes

DCI Ronnie Box: [inducing Thursday to take a bribe] A man's got his dignity, Fred, or he's nothing. It don't make you a bad copper. It just makes you a smart one.

Writing not of the caliber of earlier seasons
25 February 2019 | by jjj58205-1See all my reviews

Something seems off about this collection of episodes. The episodes are not as engaging and the plotlines are not up to the standards of earlier seasons. It seems odd that after suffering to gain acceptance from his peers in past seasons; Morse should, once again, have to prove himself. Also I'm a bit nonplussed that the character of Thursday should have been given such misfortune by the writers. This character has shown his mettle time and time again thru past episodes only to have his daughter and now wife estranged from him. I believe he has been treated shabbily by the writing team. All in all I fnd this season to be disappointing.
