Welcome to the Digital Spy forums. Bright’s wife is back from experimental treatment in America, feeling remarkably perky after treatment for her lung disease by a Dr Schneider; Fred’s trying to keep the cat away from his canaries (did we know the Thursdays had a cat?). Anyway, the secret is out, and if Morse expected Violetta to choose him over a luxurious lifestyle with Ludo, he’s soon disillusioned. His rediscovery in 1900 (simultaneously with the botanists Carl Correns and Erich Tschermak von Seysenegg) of Gregor Mendel’s principles of heredity and his theory of biological mutation, though considerably different from a modern understanding of the phenomenon, resolved ambiguous concepts concerning the nature of variation of species that, until then, had precluded the universal acceptance and active investigation of Charles Darwin’s system of organic evolution. Quite why that towpath hadn’t been patrolled by police constantly after four murders is anyone’s guess though. The only thing I would add was the trip from Oxford to Venice.

If Ludo is in fact Hugo de Vries, then he didn’t die in the canal. Maybe as you say but found myself transfixed by the actress who played Violetta just had to watch her. Christmas comes, Morse sends remorseful letters to Fred and Bright, and heads for Venice (note he has a gondola ornament on his writing desk). The towpath murders were so festooned with red herrings, random supernatural references and implausibility that one got completely fed up of the whole business long before its conclusion. This suggested to de Vries that evolution might be studied by a new, experimental method rather than by the old method of observation and inference.

Then Morse goes to see psychic Jenny Tate (Holli Dempsey) to see if she has had any visions of the latest murder; only to find her descending into a psychotic state haunted by demonic figures from her abusive childhood. Once again we hear the noise of the grinding of reviewers’ teeth as coincidence rears its abominable head – for Bright’s wife to have been the victim of a crime Morse is investigating just makes us fume. Yes found this series very confusing. While surveying literature on the subject, de Vries discovered the Austrian monk’s paper of 1866 on the breeding of garden peas, and he was careful to attribute the original discovery of the laws of heredity to Mendel in his subsequent publications. It’s all done in a very civilized manner, in a restaurant that looks oddly like someone’s back parlour. Agree with everyone else – I’ve always loved the Endeavour series but this one has just been too overblown and confusing, and frankly unbelievable. An exhausting day of trains, planes and water-taxis condensed into a five-second clip of Morse (and then Thursday) on a train. It was a 50/50 awful choice for her! Yes it was disappointing…dumbed down… however still better than a lot of the trash around especially the comic book Killing Eve. Credit/Charge Cards acceptance in 1970 was possibly more prevalent in restaurants than general retail but more often in places somewhat more upscale than this curry house. I don’t remember having a credit card in 1970 although I know they did start about 1966. He is known chiefly for suggesting the concept of genes, rediscovering the laws of heredity in the 1890s while apparently unaware of Gregor Mendel's work, for introducing the term "mutation", and for developing a mutation theory of evolution. Registered in England. I was quite impressed by Grado's English accent - although playing a wrestler shouldn't be too far out of his comfort zone. A notion from another site "The similarity of the continuing Morse/Ludo sub-plot to "The Talented Mr. Ripley" is cheekily emphasized in this second episode by the revelation that Ludo's surname is "Talenti".". (I predict) Series 8 will be three episodes so that Endeavour completes on 33 total episodes too. As to the insurance scam, I’m not sure that it’s even allowable to buy up someone else’s policy. And there were some bizarre directorial slips, such as the scene where Morse, Thursday, Max and Strange all walk away from the towpath leaving the dead body of Petra lying on the ground, as if the production just couldn’t afford a couple of uniformed officers in the scene; and Dorothea Frazil making a call from a phone box rather than her comfortable office. I’ve been doing a little Inspector Morse research and just realised that both Morse and Lewis finished with 33 episodes. Yes this was a VERY underwhelming end to the penultimate season, and a very hasty one at that. Bekijk de profielen van mensen met de naam Ludo De de Vries. The formidable Ian McDiarmid shone in that role. Hopefully the final season can bring everything to a satisfying conclusion, and I really hope they give the character of Thursday a proper send-off as he is a firm favourite of mine. But it did amuse me to think on such a dour chap as Thursday dropping everything at Christmas and somehow finding the time (and money) to inter-rail through Europe to Venice with a gun to assist Morse. Strange gets stabbed (by the wolf-head sword cane we saw the towpath murderer using) and Morse, in pursuit of Sturgis, knocks him down the stairs to his death. And if so, why? Updates? Hugo de Vries, in full Hugo Marie de Vries, (born February 16, 1848, Haarlem, Netherlands—died May 21, 1935, near Amsterdam), Dutch botanist and geneticist who introduced the experimental study of organic evolution. Here in the U.S. we will see this episode for the first time next Sunday on PBS but I am wondering about the La Sposa del Demoino connection and google brought me to you.

Anywhere else, if four people had been murdered in the same place in the space of 11 months, the whole area would be swarming with coppers as far as the eye could see. Is Fred’s gut instinct now entirely vindicated, or has he still missed something vital? Chris thanks for this – it’s a very funny review and explained a lot that I was completely bemused about, and I watched it twice! Dankzij onze speerpunten ‘kwaliteit’ en ‘gastvrijheid’ en de vele jaren ervaring, is ons team in staat voor u een bijzonder verblijf te organiseren. What a shame… I cannot get out of my head the image of Thursday telling his wife not to make any sandwiches as he is just popping off to Venice for the day. In 1886 de Vries noticed wild varieties of the evening primrose (Oenothera lamarckiana) that differed markedly from the cultivated species. Meanwhile, to our astonishment, Violetta has set herself up in a friend’s sex-pad in Oxford, and Morse is visiting her for regular rumpy-pumpy, or as the Italians say, la cavalcata selvaggia. Listen now for interviews with the biggest soap stars and all the latest spoilers - available on every major podcast app . If Ludo didn’t die and they can’t find a body it lets Fred off the hook for shooting someone in a foreign country. Someone on other site asked if Ludo ( "I Play) is Hugo de Vries. I cannot be alone in thinking this series of Endeavour has been muddled rather than complex. Morse’s first suspect is Dr Dai Ferman (Richard Harrington), Welsh chauvinist pig who we met in first episode Oracle; but despite Petra’s complaints of sexist behaviour against him he can’t be placed at the scene of her murder. Corrections? Morse is chastised for airing his theory about the insurance accidents. Morse intends to confront Violetta at the opera on New Year’s Eve – implausibly, and this is getting more and more like a bad pastiche of Sherlock Holmes, Fred follows Morse to Venice. Was the theft of Morse’s wallet last week staged to engineer an introduction, and if so had Ludo engineered the original meeting with Violetta? Everything was wrapped up in a confusing series of coincidences that had me howling. I don’t know whether that was meant to be his gravestone we saw. Hummmm! Even more tellingly, tied up in a bedroom is Jenny Tate. (already mentioned). As Morse investigates, Ludo and Violetta stroll past. Was Ludo really living an international jet-set lifestyle on the proceeds of a few life insurance payouts? Umpteen questions are left unanswered – had Ludo then actually been up at Oxford with Morse? What’s Ludo’s interest in the bursar of the college – or has he been up to something more sinister? All the signs point that way in Zenana, in which we must surely be delivered a solution to the riddle of the towpath murders, and a conclusion to the love triangle of Morse, Violetta and Ludo? When yet another young woman, Petra Cornwell, is murdered on the towpath (don’t any of them have the sense to stay away from the canal?) Bright gives him short shrift (but what’s he doing in work, hours after the death of his wife?).

I wonder if in the early 70s there would have been enough flights for Fred to chase after Morse as he did. He visits a pub, the Wolf’s Head (nothing sinister there then) and learns about a terrible fire that killed the previous tenants – anything to do with Jenny Tate’s childhood trauma? you would be financially disadvantaged if they were to die. It does sound dodgy. He leaves Fred the evidence of the insurance scam, and Bright admits that he and his wife had cashed in their life insurance – and Ludo’s name is all over the paperwork. had helped them escape to Berlin. Fred, doggedly clinging to his belief that first victim Molly’s boyfriend Carl was the perpetrator, has him arrested – but why would he be whistling music-hall standard ‘Oh, oh Antonio’ on the towpath, Morse asks? series and I just hope that there is a good send off for Fred and Bright who are marvellous characters, and give a good explanation as to why they are never mentioned in Morse. Just too much going on, trying to be clever but in the end just confusing us. Barclays actually tried to get other banks to join in with them back in 1967 but they were all willing to let Barclays take the risk in introducing a new concept of revolving credit previously not permitted. I also agree with Andy D’s comment about the demise of Mrs Bright. I thought it was odd that Endeavour series 7 was only three episodes but now it makes sense. But the humdinger really was Ludo. Presumably not, since he wasn’t even actually Ludo. Dying is not her best acting but rest was delightful. Rather than showing increased maturity, sophistication and psychological insight, Endeavour seems to be degenerating into cheap melodrama not even worthy of light opera.
