Crossover TV Episode: Raga


This episode of Endeavour is set in June 1970. Chief Superintendent Bright mentions his service in Pankot and Chandrapore. Oxford’s Conservative candidate in the general election is Archibald-Lake. Ludo Talenti says cooking show host Oberon Prince is no Robert Danvers. The island of Vrakonisi is mentioned. Pankot is from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Bright’s service there was first mentioned in the episode “Prey.” Chandrapore is from E. M. Forster’s A Passage to India. Hugh Archibald-Lake is the Conservative candidate in The Wednesday Play episode “Vote, Vote, Vote for Nigel Barton,” a sequel to the earlier “Stand Up, Nigel Barton.” Robert Danvers is from Terence Frisby’s play There’s a Girl in My Soup. Vrakonisi is from Colonel Sun, the first-post Ian Fleming James Bond novel, written by Kingsley Amis as Robert Markham.  

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, to be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
