Inspector Morse (ITV 1987-2000 with John Thaw and Kevin Whately)

Published

on

UK / ITV Network-Central-Zenith / 28×120 minute episodes and occasional specials / 6 January 1987 – 15 November 2000

Creator: Colin Dexter / Music: Barrington Pheloung / Executive Producer: Ted Childs

Crime drama series. Cases of cerebral Oxford Detective Chief Inspector Morse and his down to Earth Geordie Sergeant. Morse drove a red 1960 Mark II Jaguar. Morse’s long unknown first name was finally revealed as Endeavor.

There are a couple of theories surrounding the theme tune to Inspector Morse which contains snippets of Morse Code, one is that it supposedly spells out Morse’s real name and another is that the murderer for each episode has his name spelt out.

The very final episode of Inspector Morse went out on 15 November 2000 with Endeavor Morse going to meet his maker. The Last Morse was a behind the scenes 60 minute documentary broadcast Sunday 5 November 2000 @ 10pm, a week before the final episode was broadcast.

There have been two spin-offs in the shape of sequel Lewis (which sees Sgt Lewis getting a much needed promotion) and the prequel Endeavor which is set in the 1960s and follows the early cases of the young Morse.
