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. :)

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.

Morse is a grumpy detective but a really smart one. The series is always well done, detailed, difficult to figure out whodunit and also has a sense of humor at times. We have watched every episode and was sorry to see it end.

Another great set - nice change going to Australia and seeing the difficulties Morse has in solving this one. As always, Morse is great viewing.

Great stories and fantastic characters. You can always count on Masterpiece/PBS for fine entertainment. The relationship between Morse and Lewis is very interesting.
