Following the young Endeavour Morse in his early day as an Oxford police constable working with CID, encountering Strange for the first time, and developing the notable personality traits he would latterly refine.
With the help of DS John Bacchus, Inspector George Gently spends his days bringing to justice members of the criminal underworld who are unfortunate enough to have the intrepid investigator assigned to their cases.
Detective Inspector Jack Frost is an unconventional policeman with sympathy for the underdog and an instinct for moral justice. Sloppy, disorganized and disrespectful, he attracts trouble like a magnet.
DI Lewis returns to Oxford after several years absence and is reluctantly assigned by his new boss, DCS Innocent, to the murder of an Oxford mathematics student who was shot while participating in a sleep study. The key-code used to access the sleep lab was assigned to a fellow maths student, Daniel Griffin, but Daniel's math tutor has provided him with an alibi. Daniel is a maladjusted young man who will soon inherit his father's automotive empire. He is disruptive and has no respect for his uncle who now heads the company. The future of the company however rests on an impending deal with Japanese investors who insist that family unity is all important at this time. When two other murder occurs, Lewis must decipher a cryptic clue left in an old case file by his former boss, Chief Inspector Morse . Written by
One of the main characters is called Regan Peverill. The "Regan" part of her name is a reference to the character Jack Regan that John Thaw (Inspector Morse) played in the TV series The Sweeney (1975). See more »
A welcome return for Morse's old sidekick, Robbie Lewis. Lewis, played by Kevin Whately, returns from an overseas secondment and steps straight into the case of a female student shot in a sleep investigation unit. The killer used the key-code of a mathematics student (Danny Griffon, played by Charlie Cox)to enter the unit so he rightly becomes the prime suspect. Unfortunately for Lewis and his temporary sergeant James 'God botherer' Hathaway (Laurence Fox), Danny appears to have a cast iron alibi, or does he? I'm not going to give anymore away, as there are many people, in the US and elsewhere who have not yet been privileged to see this subtle and highly polished production. Let's hope Kevin Whately agrees to do more episodes. It was well worth the wait.
