Storyline

When Vivienne Haldane is found murdered in her house she becomes the third victim of a serial killer who strangles married women with a silk stocking and removes their wedding rings after death - though the women are unknown to each other. Separated from her husband Mrs Haldane had a secret lover, referred to in her diary as 'X' and, like one of the other victims, she was seen getting into a green car. The stockings are a unique brand, Le Minou Noir, and have only one retail outlet in Oxford, Burridges department store. Here Thursday is shocked to find that widowed Italian saleslady Luisa Armstrong is a former partisan he met in the war but believed to be dead. Morse interviews the stockings' supplier, shifty Joey Lisk, who had tried to come on to Gloria Deeks, a prisoner's wife and assistant at the store, where she has many admirers.

Trivia

The action takes place at the beginning of November and virtually every character is wearing a commemorative poppy in their lapels. The tradition is to wear it on the left side of the chest, but one character, Mrs. Thursday, is wearing it on the right. This is probably because both the character and the actress who plays her are left-handed (she is seen writing near the end of the episode). See more »

Goofs

DS Jakes remarks that women nowadays (i.e., in 1966) prefer what he calls "pantyhose" to silk stockings. "Pantyhose" was not a widespread term in 1966; people more commonly just said "tights". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Rufus Haldane: The Greeks called it 'apeiros'. Anaximander of Miletus termed it 'apeiron'. But we generally take it to mean the same thing, which is to say... endless.
