From Amazon.co.uk

When Inspector Morse first appeared on television in 1987, nobody could have predicted that it would run into the next century, maintaining throughout a quality of scripts and storylines that raised the genre of the detective series to a new level. Much of its success can be attributed to John Thaw's total immersion in the role. Morse is a prickly character and not obviously easy to like. As a detective in Oxford with unfulfilled academic propensities, he is permanently excluded from a world of which he would dearly love to be a part. He is at odds with that world--and with his colleagues in the police force--most of the time. Passionate about opera and "proper beer", he is a cultural snob for whom vulgarity causes almost physical pain. As a result, he lives from one disillusionment to another. And he is scarred--more deeply than he would ever admit--by past relationships. But he also has a naïve streak and, deep down, sensitivity, which makes him a fascinating challenge for women.

At the heart of Morse's professional life is his awkward partnership with Detective Sergeant Lewis, the resolutely ordinary, worldly sidekick who manages to keep his boss in an almost permanent state of exasperation while retaining his grudging respect. It's a testament to Kevin Whately's consistently excellent performance that from such unpromising material, Lewis becomes as indispensable to the series as Barrington Pheloung's hypnotic, classic theme music. Morse's investigations do occasionally take him abroad to more exotic locations, but throughout 14 successful years of often gruesome murders, the city of Oxford itself became a central character in these brooding two-hour dramas: creator Colin Dexter said he finally had to kill Morse off because he was giving Oxford a bad reputation as a dangerous place! --Piers Ford

I bought this for the sake of 'The Wench is Dead', where Morse solves a 19th century crime which he read about in a book written by an American scholar. He reinterprets the evidence and proves that those accused and hanged for a murder were not guilty and shows how an ingenious deception was carried out. There is good interplay between Morse and the two main female characters: the academic, who is a sort of sparring partner, and Adele Cecil, to whom he becomes emotionally attached and whom we meet again in 'Death is now my Neighbour'. There is little to be said about the latter film. Richard Briers is, frankly, daft as the head of an Oxford college, he and the other dons are ridiculously scheming (and lecherous) and the motives for the murders are far-fetched.

Had been looking for the dvd of 'The Wench is dead' for a while and it is as good as I remember it on tv. I love the way they switch between the present day and Victorian times in Morse's attempt to solve a murder and associated miscarriage of justice. This episode just has everything from Morse's illness and vulnerability to humour to his relationships and ultimately to his victory in solving the crime. There is even a good twist at the end. Perfect viewing in my opinion. I have yet to view 'Death is now my neighbour' but looking forward to two hours of self-indulgence!

I had watched the programme before but it is so much nicer when you have your own copy and can watch at your leisure without all the ads.
