Detective Sergeant Lewis
I might not pass the exam. Even if I did, it could be months before there's a promotion vacancy. The thing is, sir, I have to have your recommendation. And what I need to know is... d'you think I'm good enough to be recommended for promotion?
Chief Inspector Morse
I'm sorry to tell you, Lewis... that the answer to that... is yes.
