More Freemasonry in Popular Culture

The late great actor John Edward Thaw, in his popular British series "Detective Morse" plays a police inspector who becomes suspicious of Freemasons in the police department, only to find that a villain used imagery associated with Freemasonry as part of a plot to mislead the inspector while framing him for murder. It is not really a treatment of Masonry but the use of popular perspectives on the fraternity in the U.K. as an incidental plot device.
