Brilliant acting but the most mediocre Morse e.episode
25 September 2006 | by ettrickSee all my reviews

Sir John Gielgud steals this show with his wit and overall brilliance in acting. The usually expertise of Robert Hardy is poor and he overacts his part as a self-made ex-Lithuanian immigrant.The rest of the normal cast are very good as normal but the story line is the poorest of the whole series. Normal Morse enthusiast could easily use the fast forward and only stop when Sir John is on screen, especially his last appearance. Many of his asides could be puerile in most actors hands but with him the absolute opposite is true.

Being a Wagner enthusiast, the title would imply much Wagnerian background music which was curiously lacking for the most part. I had expected a comment from Morse when the repetiteur played the Tristan chord but none was forthcoming!
