Well here we are at the final episode of what has been a very disappointing series. This series proved the adage quantity does not always equal quality. Let us hope that with series six being reduced to four episodes we will see a return to quality writing.

Chris – I assume you also saw the ITV broadcast in the spring and know what is shown on PBS is not the same thing. Am I correct in remembering a scene between Bright and Morse at Bright’s home after Fancy’s demise wherein they discussed who might be responsible, but this scene was not included in the PBS broadcast? I also remember a slew of comments on the group board on whether Bright himself might have been involved in some kind of cover-up with Division. There was a slight lookaway from Bright after a comment that left Morse uneasy – of course, with it not being included in the PBS broadcast, it’s making me feel like I hallucinated this scene.
Hi Edwina. Unfortunately the episodes shown in America are brutally edited. I am in the process of finding out which scenes were excised from the US version and I will eventually create a video of those missing scenes.
Mahalo for the reply – Edwina
What was Morse’s poem used as a eulogy for George?
It’s in my review under ‘literary references’.
I think I got it: Say not the struggle, naught availeth, the labor and the wounds are vain, the enemy faints not nor faileth and as things have been , they remain. If hopes are dupes, fears may be liars, it may be in yon smoke concealed, your comrades chase even now the fliers, and but for you posses the field. For while the tired waves vainly breaking seem here no painful inch to gain, for back through creeks and inlets making, comes silent flooding in, the main. And not by eastern windows only when daylight comes, comes in the light. In front the sun climes slow, now slowly. But westward look, the land is bright.
