Morse is taken aback by the apparent suicide of Anne Staveley. Morse knew her well as they were members of the same choir and he was quite attracted to her. On the evening of the choir's public performance, Morse stops by her house to collect her but finds her front door open and no one at home. On his way home after the performance he sees several police vehicles outside her house and it appears Anne has hung herself. When her nosy neighbour is also killed, Morse is convinced that Anne was murdered. Written by

. In the new credits at the end of The Dead of Jericho, they have erroneously credited James Laurenson
with the part of Colin, in addition to the Richards brother whom he did actually play. See more
