I never saw him as having a drink problem.

Obviously that depends on what you define as a 'problem', but you never saw him drink to excess and drinking certainly didn't seem to interfere with his...

Morse was not an alcoholic.

True he drank a fair bit but isn't the same thing at all.

I also don't think he was misanthropic. He was just tetchy and didn't suffer fools gladly.

It was just incredibly sloppy writing.

Very unusual in Morse/Lewis/Endeavour.

He'll need to study the 'Doc Martin' thread.

That lot are past masters at continuing to flog a horse months after it took its last breath.

Quite a good episode.

I noticed that Will's surname was 'Humphries'.

Interesting!

I liked the idea that Ian had outwitted Anna and Simon but found the idea that two such senior people did not...

Thanks for that.

Some definite laugh out loud moments in there.

I thought this, too.

What were the chances that someone could get through the rest of the war, get repatriated and demobbed without ever meeting someone who knew either Spurling or Batten? And what...

The great thing with SL is that, even after his last programme, it's impossible to be sure what he really thinks about dogs.

I find it odd when people who don't like an artist or a programme or film join in threads just to have a go at them. If I see something I don't like I just move on.

Agreed.

It was by pure chance that I found out that it was a trilogy.

I'd watched it when it was originally transmitted as a stand alone programme, and happened to recommend it to someone when I...

Excellent!

I wonder why so few.

I know there is a trend, now, for three episode series of longer programmes but two is paring it down a bit.

We have 'Best sitcom of all time' and 'Worst current advert' threads but, over the years, there have been some incredibly good adverts. Some clever, some with enormous style and some very funny.

Yes, that particular joke was well past its sell by date.

Once per series would have been quite enough. (Or more than enough.)

God alone knows how that happened. I'm perfectly well aware of the difference. :blush:

I think probably the main problem here is that 'genius' is a rather overused word and I'm not even sure it is something that can reasonably be applied to comedy.

I agree that RG is very good, but I...

Had a weird experience last night.

Watched Tom H being all warm and good as 'The Rev' in this and immediately afterwards watched him a s psycho killer in Hanna.

He handled both parts brilliantly.
