Henry Fallon, who is wheelchair bound and is suffering from a neurological disorder, apparently commits suicide and Morse has mixed feelings working on this case as he was once engaged to the dead man's wife, Susan Fallon. The body was found by his son-in-law Peter Rhodes, a local antiques dealer and the victim's wife was in London. When Fallon's doctor advises Morse that Henry didn't have the physical capability to hold a gun to his head, the police realize they may have a murder on their hands. When the police are told that the business arrangement between Fallon and Rhodes had fallen apart, they also have a suspect. Lewis is concerned that Morse is too close to Mrs. Fallon to be objective but in the end, the perpetrators are identified. Written by

Morse is called in to investigate the apparent suicide of Henry Fallon who, suffering from a fatal disease, appears to have shot himself. Complicating matters is the reappearance of the victims wife who was, at one time, engaged to be married to Morse - Susan Fallon.
Suspician falls on Peter Rhodes,who was responsible for the deaths of Henry and Susan Fallon's daughter and grandchild. However, nothing about this murder is what it appears.
This episode fully explores the relationship between Morse and Lewis which has not, in my opinion, been given full credit. There are few partnerships that have the chemistry of these two characters.
After all the hype surrounding this episode it failed to live up to expectation. Perhaps I should watch it again and give it another chance.
