Inspector Morse 1987 | TV Show Watchlist

Premise

The cases of author Colin Dexter's prickly, eccentric Oxford sleuth, whose passions include ale, crosswords and, of course, a good mystery. Indeed, these first-rate whodunits established `Morse' as PBS's longest running detective series. Sadly, the inspector's style of `inspirational methodology' came to an end in 2002 with the death of star John Thaw.
