Ex-boxer Joey Sikes is killed on the night of a failed theft of a Faberge egg from the Oxford college where it is to be auctioned. Next day lecturer Robin Grey is also murdered and the link is prostitute and artists' model Eve Thorne, who was seen with both men. When the egg is stolen suspicion falls on another of Eve's clients, latest victim Simon Lake and Morse discovers that Lake and Grey belonged to an elite club, involved in a scam regarding the egg. In establishing whether the murders were linked to the club or the egg Morse, now a detective sergeant, must cope with a lazy new constable and the reappearance of Joan Thursday.

Crazy Credits

In the closing credits after the actors' names have cycled through, certain letters of the crew's names are colored red. In order, these red letters spell out "Artemisia Gentileschi," the name of the notable female painter of "Judith and Holofernes," which is directly referenced in this episode. Artemisia Gentileschi was raped by one of her father's associates, who then refused to marry her. Gentileschi's father brought the associate to court, and although the man was found guilty and banished from Rome, the order was never enforced. Artemisia Gentileschi later painted three variations on the Judith and Holofernes story. It is widely accepted that she was expressing her desire to punish the man who raped her through the subject of these paintings. See more »

A word about the music
25 June 2018 | by Michael_LinderSee all my reviews

Sadly, there is no Barrington Pheloung soundtrack. He's credited with the "Endeavour" closng theme, of course, but Pheloung's incidental music has long been integral to the internal cohesiveness and acoustic brilliance of episodes in the complete Morse catalog. Given the importance of music in these series, his absence is as noticeable as the loss of a principal cast member and just as sorely missed.
