and Lewis become immersed in the mystery surrounding an unwelcome
take-over bid by a large multinational company and the suspicious
death of the current managing director, Trevor Radford...
The Sins Of The Father sees Lewis
amused that Morse should be assigned to this case and quips:
"You'll never believe this sir, we have to visit a brewery".
Jeffries stars as determined old man Charles Radford, who
seems to suffer with 'selective deafness'.
directed by Peter Hammond (Service of all the Dead)
and uses an unusual assortment of camera angles. All in all
a good all rounder.
discs extra is a photo gallery that includes 20 photos, although
there is a distinct lack of captions and only four photographs
apparently motiveless murder of two young women points to
a psychotic killer. A local garage owner, who knew both girls
arouses suspicion, but there's a twist in the tale...
is the third episode to be directed by award winning Anthony
Minghella and is the
only episode, to my recollection, that has Morse pursuing
a serial killer.
Malahide is well cast as the quite revolting Boynton, who
must rate as one of the nastiest villains of the series, and
the tension that mounts between Boynton and Morse is electrifying.
episode also sees Morse becoming a computer expert, taking
a course of driving lessons and even finding a lady (DS Maitland)
that shares his love of Bach. But one slight criticism is
the apparent flaw in police prosecution. We see Boynton committing
and being found out about certain crimes but he manages to
evade prosecution and to make matters worse, even receives
an apology and unusual gift from Morse. Does this make any
sense ? Would this happen in real life ? Despite
this, a thoroughly good episode.
