Storyline

A year after her murder, the police re-open the case of Yvonne Harrison when they receive an anonymous letter implicating a burglar, Harry Repp, who is about to be released from prison. Supt. Strange assigns the case to DS Lewis, who is chafing at the bit awaiting his promotion to Inspector. Morse has been ill and has only just returned to work. He steps on Lewis' toes by involving himself in the case, but as the body count rises, Morse finds himself in charge of investigating a woman who had many affairs with many different men. When he learns that the dead men were in possession of large amount of cash, he suspects they were blackmailing her murderer. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The episode ends with the simple scene in which Lewis visits Morse's body, kisses him on the forehead and says "Goodbye, Sir". Several further scenes were filmed with Lewis walking away, holding back tears, then driving off and bursting into tears as he was stopped at traffic lights. However during editing these were discarded as being unnecessary, on the grounds that the simple "Goodbye, Sir" scene makes the point just as well. See more »

Such a heart-rending ending to a wonderful series!
4 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Inspector Morse. I have all the books and episodes at home, and it is one of my all-time favourites. I loved this episode. It was so heart-rending at the end, when Morse died, seeing as he was such an iconic character. John Thaw, one of Britain's finest actors, was brilliant here, as he was consistently in the series. His heart-attack was so well-acted, I was in tears before I knew what was happening, the shot with Morse saying absolutely nothing and doing little, letting his eyes and facial expressions do all the work is one of the series' most remarkable and moving moments. I read the book recently, and I cried at the end. Kevin Whately and the guest stars especially Paul Freeman also shone considerably in this episode, and the use of Faure's Requiem was truly effective .Thank you to everyone for a wonderful series, and may the spirit of John Thaw live on. I am kind of glad that Morse stopped, because I just can't imagine someone else playing Morse, I just can't. 10/10 Bethany Cox
