“I didn’t know what to call him and [to] Dorothy, my wife, I said ‘Will you have a look through the Mayflower, the Christian names of everybody who went over to America’, and she came across a man called Determination Davis and another man called Endeavour Jones.”  Colin Dexter

The hold that the hand regrets, the heart remembers forever
