Catching up with Sunday's episode, I was puzzled to see a large detached
house in which some of the action took place on a street which was
clearly named Sebastopol Terrace.
Took me a while to remember who lived at that address (can umrats
remember without looking it up?) and I wondered why it had been used -
it was very obviously inappropriate for the type of dwelling so must
have been an in joke.

I watched Sunday and felt they had definitely "jumped the shark".
My immediate reaction was that John Le Carre had written the script with
advice from Herge (Thompson twins??).
I said this too. Plausibility too challenging.

But then they also went to the "Crossroads Motel" for the Railway story c.2
weeks ago. A signpost even said Kings' Oak. So I think they do have a mind
for past remembrances.
It seems to me that the series is approaching its end. The station is
under threat, Fred Thursday is retiring and CS Bright looks as if he is
too old be still serving. I expect the series closer next week to be the
last ever programme. I shall miss it.

Was it just me having dropped off at some point in an episode? Does
anyone else remember Morse having been burgled as Trewlove said? I
distinctly remember him listening to Rosalind Umbrella in the first
episode (singing what? Tosca? Traviata? Can't even remember that, oh
dear) and yet there was his record on that dodgy street stall in episode
3, having been pinched. I hope he was able to get it back, it was
autographed, wasn't it?
Please no spoilers for 4 or 5 as we haven't watched them yet!
Apart from that, yes, certainly, jumped right over the shark with the
Faberge Egg and hasn't stopped flapping since. But I adore Thursday and
Bright and quite often Morse, so keep watching in spite of that.
