A year after her murder, the police re-open the case of Yvonne Harrison when they receive an anonymous letter implicating a burglar, Harry Repp, who is about to be released from prison. Supt. Strange assigns the case to DS Lewis, who is chafing at the bit awaiting his promotion to Inspector. Morse has been ill and has only just returned to work. He steps on Lewis' toes by involving himself in the case, but as the body count rises, Morse finds himself in charge of investigating a woman who had many affairs with many different men. When he learns that the dead men were in possession of large amount of cash, he suspects they were blackmailing her murderer. Written by
After the filming of the final Morse episode, "The Remorseful Day", the burgundy Jaguar 2.4, registration number 248 RPA, used by Morse was given away in a prize draw to a man who lives in Oxford. The owner later sold the car at auction for £53,000 in April 2002. In 2005, the present owner spent £100,000 renovating the car and restoring it to its brand-new condition, and has put it up for sale. See more »

This is the very last episode of Inspector Morse. It is quite depressing. Characters like Inspector Morse and Inspector Tom Barnaby become like family members. Colin Dexter, the writer of the novels, makes a cameo. There are about four murders. There are at least a dozen major characters. I found it unusually difficult to keep track of who was who, even when it was over. Some characters were memorable,
Meg Davies as Yvonne Harrison, a disgustingly sexual older woman.
Anna Wilson-Jones as Sandra Harrison remaining me of Samantha Bond.
Simon Hepworth as Simon Harrison the deaf bookstore owner.
Jesse Birdsall as John Barron a dashing Don Juan.
Aidan David as Roy Holmes, a teen cyclist.
