Season 2 Episode 3

Life Born of Fire

Aired Sunday 8:00 PM Mar 09, 2008 on ITV



  • Trivia

    • Hathaway comments on the crucifixes in Will's flat, but we're shown ordinary crosses, not crucifixes, which are crosses with the crucified Christ. Since Hathaway studied to become a priest, he should know the difference.

  • Quotes

    • Lewis: "Life born of fire." I bet that means something in Latin.
      Hathaway: What makes you say that?
      Lewis: This is Oxford. Everything always means something in Latin.

    • Hathaway: I was training to be a priest. Kind of closes your life down a bit. Then I was training to become a policeman.
      Lewis: Closes down your life even more.
      Hathaway: Thank heavens we found each other, sir.

    • Dr Hobson: Where's your better half?
      Lewis: By that you mean Sergeant Hathaway?
      Dr Hobson: I was gonna say your Mini Me, but I didn't think you'd get the pop culture reference.
      Lewis: Don't be daft, woman. Even I've seen The Italian Job.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Lady Hugh [ about Reverend King ]: "Whatsoever a man soweth, so shall he reap."
      Lewis: An eye for an eye?
      Lady Hugh: Well, I wouldn't go that far.
      Lady Hugh justifies her dismissal of Reverend King with another Bible verse, Galatians 6:7.

    • Lady Hugh [ to Lewis ]: "The merciful man doeth good to his own soul", and that deserves a cup of tea at least.
      Lady Hugh's response to Lewis' rescuing her from the angry mob is to quote part of Proverbs 11:17.

    • Dr Hobson: I was going to say mini-me but I don't think you'd get the pop-culture reference.

      Which does of course refer to the Austin Powers movies, not "The Italian Job" as stated by Lewis.
