But this is what writers do, to suit individual stories, they do it with Sgt. Ben in Midsommer and did it with the Old Barney Bee's daughter, Cally.
In the last series they had Hathaway briefly involved with a lady known ( on DS) as the Horticultural Hottie , but there seems to be no love interest for him in this series which strikes me as a bit odd. Possibly because Lewis is now linked with Laura they thought that both of them getting it on would be too much.

I wonder what the Horticultural Hottie and Cully are doing these days , I haven't seen either of them in any drama recently .

Yes!

I remember that, didn't we have some exchanges describing different female characters, substituting made up names with some alliteration?

Horticultural Hottie is Nadine Lewington I believe.

She's only been in an episode of Misfits on screen since.

As for Cully, an episode of Doctors,an episode of Casualty and a film called Get Well Soon.

She's been busy on stage: http://www.laurahoward.net/website/CV.html

Ah, Laura's first episode. When she first appeared, walked up to Morse and Lewis and consulted a piece of paper and said she was looking for "Inspector ... Mouse" lol
Didn't somebody also once ask for him as 'Inspector Morose'?

And the most famous person did not do it for once.

They could make some more good ones now they've got the hang of it.

I had my money on either Edward Fox, Alison Steadman, Soo from beyond the grave (I thought it might turn out somehow that she wasn't dead), or the mother in the cafe. I thought the one who did actually do it was too obvious so didn't pick her.

Nice ambiguous ending.

Talking about packing it in isn't the same as doing it, when we don't get to SEE them do it.

Nice, gentle ending - I really liked the last scene between the two of them, even if it dashed my hopes of a series of "Hathaway" at some point in the future.

Much of what happened in the murder plot was a reworking of other story lines they've done, but I really think this series was more about saying goodbye to Robbie and James, so I haven't minded the plots not being very strong.

I'll really miss it; I'll give Endeavour another go, but to be honest I'm not that keen on prequels, and couldn't get into the pilot episode when it was shown.

The writer seemed a bit all over the place with her Robbie/Laura writing after last weeks moments this week their interaction was strange - still nice but just off and Jean finding the hair was sweet. I liked the end it was well done and how it should've ended but and I don't just say this as. Laura or Laura/Robbie fan but given Laura's connection to Morse some sort of ending for (and Jean cause I do love Jean) her rather than just allowing us to assume she'll carry on working and trying to have a relationship with Robbie.

Jame leaving kinda does put the final nail the Lewis coffin...

I felt that Robbie and Laura did get enough time together in this episode.
We could see the relationship had moved forward; she was spending nights with him and talking about him having her dinner ready when she got home once he's retired, so we know they're happy and in it for the long term

I felt it was a good thing that their getting together happened in the penultimate episode, so that the final one was about James and Robbie saying their goodbyes.

I thought this series was the best yet especially the middle episodes. Shame that it seems to be the last ever.

I've much more enjoyed it since Robbie became happier with Laura. I think they should have got together in about series 2 so that the chirpier Lewis of the Morse years could have continued into the spin-off. I always felt that the change of his character from happy-go-lucky to morose took something way from the series.

Having said that, the whole seven series have had the ghost of Morse hanging over them. The sheer class of the Morse episodes, particularly the first four series, will never be matched on British TV. But even if 'Endeavour' is half as good as Morse it will be brilliant.

I thought James was going to go back to the seminary and become a priest! Might still be right!

i think for the final the balance was right, they showed them getting together in the previous ep and I think it was quite right that the show ended with more Lewis/Hathaway interaction and the last scene was just lovely. Very reminsent of the final Lewis/Morse scene at that pub (but least both are still alive).

Just loved the whole "and its Robbie" element to it too!

I wil miss the dynamic duo!

Will will never know, unless there's a new series called Father Hathaway.

I agree. much as I like Laura, and am glad that Robbie and she finally got together, it was very fitting that the last scene should be just the two cops (ex-cops) having a pint.

Really touching scene.

As Hathaway is leaving the police, and so there won't be the "Hathaway" detective spin off I was hoping for, I think they could do a spin off in which Hathaway is a Parish Priest somewhere in an inner city, dealing with all sorts of situations, including crime.

I'm desperate, aren't I?

Edit; Just seen above post - great minds etc
