After a fashion shoot at an army base where Thursday's son Sam is stationed model Jean Ward is murdered, clutching a cap badge, apparently belonging to Private Oswald, who, as a black man, was Jean's type, according to her estranged stepmother, Lady Bayswater, a former Nazi sympathizer. Jean had flirted with Oswald and Sam and was once engaged to visiting military historian Rex Laidlaw. Believing Oswald was framed Morse does some private sleuthing and gets attacked by Colonel McDuff, a former war hero, now an unpredictable drunk. Following a second murder Morse suspects that one of the officers had a link to Jean's past but discovers that 'the army looks after its own' before cracking the case. Written by don @ minifie-1

The military historian Dr. Laidlaw pronounces the word "debouches" in the French manner ("de-boosh") whereas an English historian would be likely to anglicize the pronunciation as "de-bowch"; he also refers to the battle of Cannae as "c'NIGH", emphasizing the second syllable, when it should be "CAN-nigh".

Marcus X: It is well to be careful who we designate an immigrant. The black man has been here a lot longer than the Angle, the Saxon, the Jute... the Norman, the Huguenot. Long before many of your forefathers walked this "green and pleasant land", it was the Nubian who stood watch on Hadrian's Wall. The motion before this esteemed house calls for all settled immigrants to be returned to their ancestral lands. So, that being the case, I have to say,
[to Charity Mudford, Lady Bayswater]
Marcus X: "After you".

Well Structured Military Tale
17 July 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This brings Morse into the world of a military base where rules are different. This also focuses on racism and the issues of integration. We are used to these being American issues but we forget that racism exists throughout the world. Here there is a group of people who hate minorities and bask in their "superiority." This is a finely put together episode.
