The Commissioner Edit

The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police is never named. He is said to have the final authority in principal matters relating to the Folly — specifically, Nightingale has to get his approval when Peter is to be sworn in as an apprentice. He seems to be fully aware of the “arrangements” and “agreements” and questions Nightingale if it is necessary to break them.

Peter apparently respects the Commissioner and says “he wore the uniform well and was judged by the rank and file as possibly not being a total muppet”.[12]
