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.

Who knew the body-count in Oxford was as high as Midsomer's? When you're finished with this final entry in the Inspector Morse oeuvre, try its worthy successor Masterpiece Mystery: Complete Inspector Lewis, excellent in its own right. And now there's a new Inspector Morse "prequel" to soften the blow of concluding this marvelous character-study: Masterpiece Mystery: Endeavour, featuring a young version of Morse. By now, you may want to try Morse's "favourite" food: Samuel Smith's ales. Smith's Imperial Stout is fine indeed, as is the rare, oak-aged Yorkshire Stingo, only released every two years. Enjoy your vicarious travels to England! As usual, this Morse collection features three intriguing mysteries:

Death is Now My Neighbor: Two Oxfordshire village neighbors are murdered, clues link their unseemly demise and a bitter contest for the new Master of London College. Lurid: heavy on destruction and bad choices. But Morse finally finds romance. And you'll finally learn Morse's first name!

The Wench is Dead: Facing his own battle with the Reaper, admitted into hospital after a sudden collapse, Morse attempts to solve a murder from 1859, when a young woman's body was found in the Oxford canal. Men were tried and hanged for the crime, but Morse, from his hospital bed, re-opens the case. He thinks the convicted men were actually innocent. A young Constable delves into archival dust to unearth more clues, while Morse applies his enormous powers of deduction to the case. Meanwhile, he's pressured to retire from the force. A fine mystery indeed!

This is Set Eleven 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 Eleven has three episodes. They originally aired as the last three of the Inspector Morse annual Specials.
Episodes:
Death is Now My Neighbor - first aired November 1997
The Wench is Dead - aired November 1998
The Remorseful Day - aired November 2000

DEATH IS NOW MY NEIGHBOR:
It's a bright April day. The milkman's truck pulls onto Bloxham Drive and a row of semi-detached houses. He leaves bottles on the step of #17 for Rachel James, who is greeted by her neighbor at #15, Jeff Owens, just leaving in his little sports car. As Owens drives away, he waves to another woman in the same row, who gives him a decidedly sly look. 7:20 AM: Rachel is shot through her kitchen window at the back of the house, and spilled milk pools on the floor around her dead body.

Chief Superintendent Strange is affected by the killing, and expands on the difficulty of retiring on the pension he's allotted: "Don't you ever get sick of it, Morse? Spending your entire life on shootings, stabbings, stranglings..." Morse interrupts him, "Work! That's the secret of life!"

Elsewhere, Shelly and Denis Cornford are getting ready to face the day. The college has a big meeting this morning. Sir Clixby Bream is going to retire as Headmaster. Denis and Julian Storrs are the only real candidates. Bream starts the meeting: "A straight fight like this sadly gives little opportunity for horse-trading.

I have spent the last few months viewing the entire Inspector Morse series in chronological order, and that has provided me with a clear perspective for an overall evaluation. Originally, I watched the series as it was presented on television, but often missed episodes. Also, the series took significant breaks in the late 1990s before it was completed in 2000 with "The Wench is Dead." This series started out on a very high level and grew progressively better with each episode and season. I never wanted it to end. Although the plotlines were often intricate, they were always secondary to the Morse character. John Thaw played him perfectly and Sergeant Lewis provided the perfect foil. If you are at all familiar with the series, you know that Morse is an Oxford dropout who somehow found himself working as a detective. He is a brilliant investigator, but a poor policeman. He is a loner who does not work well with others or within the system. He feels himself to be mentally superior to those around him and carries himself with a pronounced arrogance not lost on his fellow policemen. He has no real friends, but Sergeant Lewis is his partner, and the two work well together. Morse does the thinking, and Lewis does all the heavy lifting carrying out all the necessary grunt work involved in any investigation. Morse is often insufferable in his attitude towards Lewis, corrects his grammar, and shows off his Oxford education and arcane knowledge. He is a crossword addict, listens to opera, and drives an antique Jaguar. But Lewis is good natured, patient, and generally shrugs off all the barbs. He is a tireless investigator and policeman and often provides Morse with the solid evidence needed to solve the crime.Read more ›
