Inspector Morse On Housing

Recommended Posts

Lewis: "You don't want to pay rent, it's money down the drain."


They had the lines off pat - specially inserted by the scriptwriters. The visit to the new housing estate building site could probably easily have been omitted but it had propaganda potential.

Morse seeing the reality but nevertheless propagating the idea that everybody was at it so it must be good and inevitable. His sidekick spouting the accepted guff as well. It's just a surprise they didn't get in the "You can't go wrong with property" line.

In the series Morse himself had quite a nice house as well.

It's from the episode "Cherubim & Seraphim" first shown in April 1992, so probably recorded late 1991 or early 1992. That would be just about when prices crashed from £139k to around £100k!
