arduinna: a tarot-card version of Linus from Peanuts, carrying a lamp as The Hermit (Default)

In the past few weeks I started randomly watching Endeavour, mostly thanks to [personal profile] therienne. Over the weekend, I caught up with a few first-season eps I'd missed, including Rocket.

I was not expecting that. ♥ I'm watching along, and it's all perfectly normal, until I realize that the dad's name is Henry (Broom) and the dead son & heir's name was Harry aka Henry Jr., and I have a little moment of "huh, how Lion in Winter of this!"

And then the other two sons' names were Richard and John. And the wife/mother's name is Nora, and she's been living apart from the family for 10 years at a family estate, and is sharp-tongued and laser sharp and despite having not seen anyone for years is immediately right in the thick of things.

And the personal assistant's name is Alice, whom Nora is convinced is sleeping with Henry Sr. And Johnny is a bit snivelly, and Richard is the only Broom male not eyeing any women.

By the end I was just grinning all over my face at what a homage to Lion in Winter it was. So much fun! Now I need to watch it again with that in mind from the get-go.

Awww, that's awesome! An easter egg, just for the most perceptive (and most Lion-in-Wintery :D ). That must have been really fun to plan out and write, for the scriptwriter(s). I haven't yet seen any Endeavour, but this speaks well for it as far as I'm concerned.
