Rachel James is shot through her kitchen window early one morning, while having breakfast. She was having an affair with Dr. Julian Storrs, an Oxford professor who is a candidate for Master of Lonsdale College. When her next-door neighbor also is killed, Morse determines that the shooting of James may have been in error. He also suspects that the neighbor, Owens, may have been a blackmailer. Both Storrs and his rival for the position of Master, Denis Cornford, had secrets that would make them suspects. Morse determines that several others also had things to hide, and that any one of them could have committed the murders. —garykmcd
Did the full stop on the writer's keyboard get stuck on auto?
Decent plot twists and performances as always, but the one thing that stands out in this episode is... and once you start to notice the absurd number of unfinished sentences, you can't help... which is unfortunately rather distracting from the rest of... there is of course a place for a character's thoughts to drift off occasionally, but in this episode... You get the point (as it were). It's not so noticeable in other episodes so it's a bit strange the way it is so overdone in this one. It contains the same running themes as other episodes - one has to wonder how anybody gets out of Oxford with a their life, let alone a degree. Anyway, worth watching, try not to let it...
