The detectives learn that Soo, who disappeared fifteen years earlier, was Martha's organ scholar and once dated Carl Drew, Stella's husband. Finding Richard's blood on her suitcase Lewis suspects an affair with the professor. After Adam hangs himself Lewis discovers how Rachel's DNA came to be in the car and uncovers a scam by which parents - including Adam's father - paid huge sums of money to get their under-achieving children into the college. Carl and Dr Yardley were in on it and Richard was about to expose it. However, following the discovery of yet another body Lewis finds that Soo and Richard were killed in order to effect a different cover-up. Written by don @ minifie-1

Things Come Round
23 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

The plot I previously left hanging comes to a conclusion. There have been some shady dealings at the college which is more interested in money than prestige. Unfortunately, I have to agree with another reviewer that too many of these episodes in the latter seasons have featured a couple of star-crossed lovers. Usually, it's an inadequate male who screws everything up for them. They are also closed mouthed about their affairs. They are also victimized by a greater force that is t the center of the show. Once again, research is also at the center, and those doing the research seem to be playing by their own rules. Most interesting to fans is Lewis's thoughts about leaving the force and Hathaway's fears of becoming a new Lewis or Morse, given over to the darkness of police work.
