This last appearance of inspector Morse in a criminal case that (a bit of a spoiler here) that partly involves the good man himself, is both beautiful and terribly depressing, as the good inspector did not survive that case. As the story progresses, we understand that nothing is at it seems, and that there is hardly someone (except for Lewis) who has not been affected by the life and death of the victim Yvonne Harrison. Perhaps, it is not so much a whodunnit than a whydunnit, as the spectator may find that being murdered sometimes happened for a good, or at least a decent reason! Morse is true to himself, with his nostalgic makeup and a thing for quoting poetry, not to mention his irritating (to those who cannot keep up with his brilliant detective mind) way of being far ahead everybody. As a guest star, Paul Freeman has an intriguing role, but given his enormous talent and presence on the screen, his part was too small. I found this dvd set plus its wonderful documentary, to be both of high quality. The dvd sound is very good, and the subtitles actually keep up with the dialogues, which is not always the case. To those who loved Morse, even if not big fans, this last case is a must-see. To others, it is definitively a detective story that offers great value for its money.
