Six adventures with TV sleuth Inspector Morse (John Thaw) and his sidekick Sergeant Lewis (Kevin Whately) are contained on this collection.
"The Dead of Jericho" - The very first episode of the long-running series introduces the world to Inspector Morse, the enigmatic and often grouchy police investigator. In this episode, Morse looks into the death of Anna Stavely, which appears to be a suicide--although Morse has his own reasons to believe otherwise.
"The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn" - Morse is called in to examine a murder possibly tied to an exam-cheating scam at Oxford University. When a deaf member of an examination board turns up dead, Morse has to tie together the clues--and could the attractive Monica be involved in the plot'
"Service of All the Dead" - When a clergyman in a quiet country church is found with a knife in his chest, Inspector Morse looks into the diabolical killing. As the bodies start piling up, Morse must step up his efforts to trap the killer.
"The Wolvercote Tongue" - The Wolvercote Tongue is a famous jewel, and the owner is dead of a supposed heart attack--telegraphing m-u-r-d-e-r in Morse's code.
"Last Seen Wearing" - When a young schoolgirl from a wealthy family disappears, Morse is convinced she has been murdered, despite the lack of any hard evidence. Before long Morse uncovers some dark secrets at the girl's school, and begins to suspect that the killer may strike again.
"The Making of Morse" - Morse fans get an eye-opening look behind the scenes in this documentary on the program.
