Ivory was not popular with other staff members but the matron tells Morse that he was very protective of Stanlow, a pupil bullied as a weakling. In fact Stanlow proves to be the key to solving the case. Meanwhile Thursday's retirement plans are dashed thanks to his reckless brother and there is further cause for grief at the station.

Did You Know?


References to "Unman, Wittering and Zigo" (1971) have already been noted. One more is that the school matron in this episode is named "Seymour" - the leading lady of the 1971 film was Carolyn Seymour. See more »


When referring to the pupil Stanlow, who is being punished for refusing to fire a rifle by having to hold buckets up at arms' length, Mr Blackwell uses the expression "under heavy manners". The programme is set in 1968, but that expression didn't come into use until the state of emergency that was declared in Jamaica in 1976. See more »


DCI Fred Thursday: There's a reckoning to be made, but it's ours to make.
Eddie Nero: Better get your skates on, then.

Season 5 definite must watch
2 February 2019 | by abr-24374See all my reviews

Wonderful and worth the time to watch and or binge

A little cheesy with the continued reference to Make Britain Great and some other xenophobic tidbits that are historical wishful thinking

Noneed to inject modern politics into otherwise wonderful story
