  • Episode Description
  • Business tycoon Sir John Balcombe is found murdered at his country house, Balcombe Castle, with no signs of a break-in. As a result, the dead man's wife and sons come under suspicion. Morse finds that the family is strangely untroubled, and several of his prime suspects have flawed characters and dark secrets - and then the Balcombe family suffers another killing. Meanwhile, Morse has to cope with journalists who try to turn his own personality into a story - and he also suffers from an unhelpful Chief Superintendant, covering for the station's usual boss, who puts pressure on him to crack the case in a hurry. In the end, though, Morse is vindicated and his various tormentors get their comeuppance.moreless

    • Holdsby: (reading from newspaper) Chief Inspector Morse can still find time to indulge his passions for books, music and fine wines. Morse: They make them sound like vices.

    • James Balcombe: Your aesthetic sense seems to be causing you no end of trouble... does it bother you? Morse: Yes, it does.

    • James Balcombe: He's gone for a walk. Being able to put one foot in front of another is one of Harry's few accomplishments, and he tries to make the best of it.

    • Third Journalist: But can you tell us how you got your break? Morse: Yes. It was something I read in a book.
