Just taking a moment or two to appreciate this gif for numerous reasons.
Of course, it shows poor
oldyoung Morse and his canonical phobia of blood. It also shows Fred Thursday being his gallant self and catching him. Excellent.
What it also shows if you watch carefully, however, is Roger Allam breaking character, post catch, to grin down at Shaun Evans (did he nearly drop him? Did Mr Evans pull a funny face? Who knows).
Either way, it’s quite splendid.
