At least we have the rest of this magical weekend together.
Also, a favourable review of last night’s ep by the Independent. I thought this bit was particularly interesting:Perhaps the most interesting thing is that Monica’s race does not really play a part in the story - it’s incidental.
According to the show’s producer, Russell Lewis, who also penned this episode, Monica is a second generation immigrant and is supposed to reflect the changing times of the era.
For a television series set in the Sixties to include a character of a different race as the central love interest and leave aside the race politics is a very forward-thinking and a positive move.
Endeavour should be lauded for its decision to cast Shvorne Marks and make the conscious choice for Monica’s story to be about love between a man and a woman first and foremost.

She’s got seven brothers, so she’s always trying to prove she’s tough.
