One great episode. One bad episode,
This review is from: Inspector Morse: The Daughters Of Cain/The Way Through The Woods [DVD]  (DVD)
This dvd is definitely worth watching, but only because The Way Through The Woods is so enjoyable. The Daughters Of Cain is ( in my opinion ) a very boring college episode, and personally I prefer the non-college episodes better.
The Way Through The Woods=This is one of my favourite ( not quite my overall favourite, though ) episodes of Morse and it was highly enjoyable. I didn't guess the ending, which is good, and it is a great ( and sad ) ending. One thing that I thought was very funny about this episode was that Lewis is trying to get the Inspector's job, and Morse keeps on being really nice to him in front of Superintendant Strange, that is weird to watch. Although this episode starts off kind of slow, it picks up later brilliantly later on in the episode 9/10.
The Daughters Of Cain=This is an extremely academic episode, and it isn't great. It kind of bored me, and it is one of the few ones that I own that I have only bothered to watch once. Morse and Lewis are plunged into a complicated case where a retired University member is stabbed to death. It seemed like a simple enough case until extraordinary events and another murder make it much more complicated. Fine, this episode failed to entertain me, but it still has interesting characters, as Morse always does, so I will give it 3/10.
I think you should buy this dvd if you like Morse for The Way Through The Woods alone.
