Patrick Malahide as Inspector Alleyn in “Death at the Bar”, S01E04

Death at the Bar 033

Fox brings up the Uther Pendragon legend, so Alleyn declaims some of Tennyson's "Idylls of the King": "...and rose an arm clothed in white samite, mystic, wonderful, and caught him by the hilt, and brandished him three times, and drew him under the mere." Show-off Classics double-first from Oxford. :-p
