An unexpected nod to Pratchett

I'm surprised that none of my online friends have mentioned the reference to "Sergeant Vimes of Cable Street" in last Sunday's episode of Endeavour. The words were uttered by Inspector Thursday, Morse's superior officer and mentor who claimed that he had learned his trade under Vimes.

As no one had said anything, I was beginning to wonder if I'd imagined it and a quick scroll backwards and forwards through the recording failed to find it. However, Googling confirmed that I was correct. I'm not actually sure I'm in favour of this sort of thing, to be honest. Yes, it's a clever little nod to Pratchett fans, but it did cause a brief failure of my suspension of belief and I'm not sure there was a particular point to this little excursion into intertexuality.
