Editorial Reviews

Award winning actor John Thaw (Kavanagh Q.C., Goodnight, Mister Tom) stars as the melancholy, enigmatic and romantic Inspector Morse, a man who never uses his first name and who finds solace in real ale, classical music and difficult crosswords. Together with his able Sergeant Lewis (Kevin Whately), Morse uses his considerable intellect and passion for truth and justice to investigate death and murder in the English university town of Oxford.

Episodes: Greeks Bearing Gifts, Promised Land & Dead on Time

I came to the Inspector Morse series by way of Inspector Lewis, and discovered that Kevin Whately (who is amazing as DI Lewis) also used to play DS Lewis in Inspector Morse. He is one of my favorite actors, and of course, John Thaw is one of my all-time favorite actors in investigative dramas. Thaw's Morse is compelling to watch - he loves listening to operatic music, enjoys his quality pint of ale, is easily smitten by a pretty face and intelligence, and is meticulous and astute in his deductive reasoning. All in all, Morse exemplifies the consummate detective, and most of the Morse episodes are of superior quality in terms of writing and acting.

Greeks Bearing Gifts
This is an episode that requires the viewer to pay careful attention as the plot is convoluted with two murders and plenty of suspects. First a Greek chef turns up murdered, and then later his unwed sister, who has a toddler, also turns up dead, seemingly by the same means. As the list of suspects mounts, Morse puts his nose to the grindstone to try and unravel the tangled web of this case.

Promised Land
Hmmm...this was not one of my favorites of the Morse episodes, primarily because I hated the change in setting. I love the Oxford setting and having become rather fond of it, I was none too pleased by the change to Australia. Here, Morse and Lewis pack up (reluctantly on Lewis' part) and head to Australia on a case. Being the opera buff that he is, Morse has purchased tickets to Der Rosenkavalier at the Sydney Opera House. There's scenic footage of the attractions but the plot itself is too convoluted and I found myself a rather disengaged viewer.

Dead on Time
This is another stellar episode in the Inspector Morse series of crime dramas.

I got sucked in to this because of the Inspector Lewis series on PBS. He kept referring to his old pal Morse and I finally couldn't stand it any more and bought the entire Morse series. Well worth it in my opinion. You could see the quality get better through the years and I feel that if I go to Oxford I may actually feel a bit closer. :)

This is Set Seven of eleven "Inspector Morse" Sets. Each Set has three episodes/discs. Don't confuse these eleven "Sets" with the previously issued (but still available) "Collection Sets". Each of the six "Collection Sets" cost more, as each has more episodes/discs than these Sets.

This Set's three episodes of Inspector Morse are among my very favorites. They were first aired in March 1991 and February 1992. The gap occurred because the 1st two episodes were the end of the BBC Series 5 (the English call them "series" instead of "seasons"), while the last episode of this set was the 1st episode in BBC Series 6.
Episodes:
Greeks Bearing Gifts
Promised Land
Dead on Time

GREEKS BEARING GIFTS:
Young Nicos Capparis is expecting a guest in his 2nd floor flat. He speaks Greek with the 1st floor tenants, the elderly Papas', as he lets in his guest, but the Papas' don't really see who's going up the stairs with him. Too bad, because that same someone, wearing black leather gloves, strangles Nicos and slips out unseen.

In the meanwhile, Sergeant Lewis and his wife Valerie are trying to have dinner at the Greek restaurant, The Acropolis. Service is incredibly slow, and Lewis finds out why. Nicos was the chef!

One of the snapshots in the murdered man's living room is of is of Nicos' sister, Maria, and her new baby. Another photo is of an ancient sailing ship. Morse and Lewis follow up on both of those. It turns out that the ship is a best-guess reproduction of a B.C.E. trireme, built as a co-operative venture between England and Greece. And in tracking it down, Morse encounters a "marriage made in heaven". Or is it?

Trivia: This episode was written by Peter Nichols, based on the characters created by Colin Dexter.

It is difficult to review one set of this magnificent series. So I'll apply this to the whole package, which I bought on separate sets. There are other options to purchase this series.The dvd's themselves are of average quality in sound an image. I imagine due to technical limitations when the series was produced. However little effort has been put forth into bringing them up to today standards. The material, scant. If you want more material to enhance your enjoyment, I highly recommend Arthur Bishop's "The Complete Morse". An excellent companion to the series. Colin Dexter's stories (albeit toned down a bit, for TV in those days)are excellent. There are some ups and downs in the quality of the screenplays, but overall superb. Some of the best young talent at the time, names that are now very familiar wrote the adaptations. John Thaw is excellent as Morse, so is the rest of the steady cast. The "guest" cast is also excellent, at times with great Shakesperian actors. The production around Oxford excellent. Overall still the best series of its kind produced for TV. I just don't see another one dethroning it. Coming close perhaps.

I watched all the episodes available on my local PBS station and fortunately, I was able to find the rest on DVD through Amazon. This is one of my favorite Mystery Series.
