Storyline

When lonely feminist lecturer Miranda Thornton is found dead after a video she submitted to a dating agency is viciously made public on a scurrilous website,the first conclusion is suicide. But,with her answer phone removed and finger prints wiped,foul play is suspected. Miranda opposed property developer David Connelly buying land belonging to her college and had been visited,via the website by unhappily married journalist Francis Mitchell, though he states that Miranda was dead when he visited her. Embittered ex-student Sebastian Dromgoole admits to posting the video but Hathaway is guilt-ridden after Dromgoole's girlfriend,whom he had asked to find out more information,is killed. Having found themselves on the website Lewis and Hathaway find that,contrary to claims,their principal suspects have known each other for two decades. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Renton writes in the newspaper under the name Thersites. In Homer's Iliad, Thersites was a solder of the Greek army who is described as "saying what everybody else is thinking." This matches Renton's role as a spreader of gossip. See more »

Goofs

When Lewis is in the pub with Laura, and he brings their drinks to their table, his beer is flat. When he puts the beer down it has acquired a head. In all the shots of Lewis, with Laura's back to the camera, the beer has a head; in all the ones of Laura, with Lewis's back to the camera, it is flat. A moment later, as DI Peterson approaches the table, the beer is again flat. See more »

Quotes

DI Peterson: [after he has walked past her, he turns toward her] Oh, um. oh, I'm sorry. We haven't met. I'm kind of the new boy around here... Alan Peterson.
[Extending his hand]
Dr. Laura Hobson: [Shaking it] Laura Hobson. Got any dead or mutilated bodies... I'm your girl.

Fascist? Hardly
19 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I will deal with the ridiculous review that seemed to suggest that this episode was anti-internet, it wasn't. It was anti-abuse something as a liberal I agree with. The episode in no way was an attack on the internet, nor an attack on dating sites. The title refers not to the internet or those who use it but is a line from a Shakespearean play about love being a generation of vipers and that love can move people to rash actions. Rather than simply base a review on an extremely biased interpretation of a few moments, why not try watching the whole episode, without an axe to grind? I think you will see how silly you have been on this.

As for the episode itself it is a very good and well acted episode about love and how far people will go to win an argument or to get revenge. Not the best of episodes for the series but an extremely good one nonetheless.
