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: The Wolvercote Tongue, Last Seen Wearing & The Settling of the Sun

LAST SEEN WEARING was one of the first dramatizations of the BBC/PBS series of 33 episodes based on the character of Endeavor Morse, Detective Chief Inspector of the Thames Valley Police Department--serving the city of Oxford in England. LSW is actually based on one of the 13 books Dexter wrote, and contains a clever and complex plot. I think I'm fairly intelligent, and I read many mysteries, but I will say, I was baffled by this story. I read the book first, and recommend you do too.
The storyline is this--a young girl who is a day student at a private girl's school fails to come home one day. The police are called in to find the girl. Six months later, the girl is still missing and Morse is put on the case. He tells Sargeant Lewis, "She's dead." "Why do you say that Sir?" says Lewis. Morse replies, "Because I'm the three-file man. They bring me in when there are three files, and when there are three files, someone's gone missing too long." So the first mystery is this, is the girl alive as Lewis says, or is she dead as Morse insists??
If she is dead, who killed her? The headmaster of the school has been behaving suspiciously. His wife thinks his actions are odd. The assistant head mistress seems to have some knowledge she is keeping under wraps. And then there's the father who has access to all sorts of earth-moving equipment--and he's her stepfather after all and a wealthy one at that. On the other hand, one of the male instructors quit quite recently, around the time when the young girl disappeared. He moved onto a lower paying job in another school. Why would he do that?
For regular fans of BBC/PBS drama and comedy, the cast is filled with many familiar faces.

This is Set Two 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 has three episodes, all from Series 2 (what we call seasons in the U.S.). They originally aired December 1987 and March 1988 in this same order. The British Series 2 series included one more episode, "Last Bus to Woodstock", which has been moved to the next Set Three of these Inspector Morse DVD sets.

In "The Story of Morse" a 50 minute documentary about Inspector Morse, Colin Dexter says this: "If you're going to write right about forensics and pathology and ballistics and so on, obviously you've got to know your onion. But I know nothing. Absolutely nothing about that. And if you write who-done-its, in other words, the central idea of the author is to dangle half a dozen people in front of you, so you always guess the wrong one; never the one you thought of; never the butler, and all these sorts of things, the less you know of police work, the better! And you just want to mystify everybody, don't you?!"

Episodes:
The Wolvercote Tongue
Last Seen Wearing
The Settling of the Sun

THE WOLVERCOTE TONGUE:
A tour bus pulls into Oxford. It's a high-end tour with only 12 participants, lead by the tired and disaffected guide, Sheila Williams (played by Roberta Taylor). She rushes from the bus to meet Dr. Simon Kemp - whose name should be Dr. Shallow - only to have him tell her his wife says he can't see her anymore.

Laura and Eddie Poindexter are on the tour.

The 1980s don't look too awful in Oxford, England, just grainy, something that seems to be an issue with several early Morse episodes. At least polyester and big hair made few inroads, low-tides of fashion simply didn't wash up on Oxford's rarified shoreline. This collection features three mysteries that don't rate the usual 5 stars, because they don't represent the overall Morse oeuvre well, and the filming is utterly dreadful. The experimental shots are claustrophobic, with pretentious mirror images and narrow, sloping filming that make it feel like you're viewing the story through a drunk shoebox. Thankfully, by Set Three, everything is level and excellent again, allowing Morse to stew in his own juices, not those of a pickled lens. When you sail to the far shore, after viewing Set 1 - 11, I strongly recommend continuing your journey with the erudite and clever Complete Inspector Lewis. The dynamics between Detective Inspector Lewis and the wry Sergeant Hathaway (Laurence Fox) are a treat.

The Wolfvercote Tongue: The owner of the missing, precious Anglo-Saxon jewel, the Wolvercote Tongue, has been murdered. The filming is nauseating, the story ok. Morse bucks the pathologist's report, believing this is more than a garden-variety heart attack.

Last Seen Wearing: Morse believes a missing schoolgirl has in fact been murdered; he discovers things are not all they seem at her exclusive school. As with Midsomer Murders: The Early Cases Collection, the body count rises as the case unfolds. A very young Elizabeth Hurley guest stars as a schoolgirl.
