Format: Paperback
In 'The Complete Inspector Morse' David Bishop has produced an absolute Morse tour de force. No matter (Morse-related) remains unvisited - Bishop has even reviewed his fellow Morse-related authors... To say that this book is an absolute necessity for each and every one of the millions of Morse fans worldwide is an understatement.
All of Colin Dexter's brilliant original novels are reviewed and annotated in an extremely intriguing way - for instance, both Morse's love of the demon drink (and Lewis's resistance!) are chronicled together with his love of pornography (not translated to the small screen...) His love life (or lack of same) are there too, together with fully detailed overviews of the stories and cross references to (amongst other things)crosswords and Morse's eclectic musical selections.
The fascinating sideways look continues with a review of each and every television story - some of the previous detail being added to. In particular, I found the annotation of the appearances of Dexter in his progeny's screen life amusing along with the cat and mouse game played throughout both books and tv in respect of Morse's first name. In fact, it could be said that the book is a notable 'endeavour' in this respect!
The tome concludes with a list of references to other material related to Morse - including Internet sites, but, for the most poignant section of the book, you will need to return to the Foreword - a short appreciation of John Thaw, who will remain immortalised as Morse and, of course, much missed.

I have recently bought the Kindle version of this book, and it is very poorly indexed. The content is fine, but this is the sort of volume where you are likely to want to look up a particular book or episode, and you can't, other than by doing a text search for the name of the story (assuming you know it), and working through the search results.

This desperately needs a proper index or table of contents. As it is, the TOC consists of only:

Introduction
The Evolution of Morse
In Print
On Screen
On Stage
On Radio

and 5 Appendices.

That's it!

I haven't seen the printed version - hopefully it is better - but I'm afraid the Kindle version is very disappointing in this respect.

It's fine if you want to read through it sequentially, but to dip into, it's hopeless.

After reading the 2002 edition three years ago, I emailed the publishers to notify them of some errors and misprints and also ask them for the author's email address, but they never replied. Having received my copy of the revised edition this morning, I was disappointed that only some mistakes have been corrected. Below is a list of the errors that still exist in the new edition.

1. p. 16 The sentence 'Crowther insists Morse is summoned' sounds awkward ('Crowther insists that Morse be summoned' would make more sense); 'He goes to the hospital and asks Sue asks for a photograph of herself': 'asks' is repeated after 'Sue'.

2. p. 26 The Shakespeare quotation is not from 'Henry IV, Part 2' but 'Henry VI, Part 2': Bishop has copied this mistake from Dexter. It isn't a misprint by the novels' publishers (Macmillan/Pan), since the quotation is misattributed again in the heading to Chapter 34 of 'The Daughters of Cain', where the exact lines from the play (4.1.1-2) are cited. As I guess that his publishers won't help me contact Dexter directly or indirectly (I've given up on publishers), I hope someone close to the novelist here alerts him to this error.

3. p. 42 The murderer is 'Charles', not 'Conrad', Richards.

4. p. 51 Sarah's surname - as spelt in the novel - is 'Jonstone', not 'Johnston'.

5. p. 110 Morse hears Mozart's Piano Concerto 14, not a Handel concerto, a mistake also occurring in the DVD subtitles. The Handel is actually heard in a later scene (when Morse drives into Oxford), at which point Bishop and the DVD subtitles incorrectly ascribe the music to Haydn: curiously, Bishop identified the music correctly - Handel - in his 2002 edition. What sounds like a Haydn quartet is heard earlier at Morse's office while speaking on the phone.

I am re-watching the dvds and this guide is a real boon. All the important information about the cast/episodes. Morse in book form and loads of extra stuff you might miss. The music used in each episode - what Morse drinks...

Enhances you enjoyment of the brilliant series.

Thought this was going to be a collection of stories instead its a repetitive summary of event of each book based on the foibles of Morse and Lewis. Wanted to send it back to Amazon but cant find the return button. Love Colin Dexter, Morse and Lewis but this book is pointless
