Storyline

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 garykmcd

Into the West Away.
13 May 2008 | by (Nagoya, Japan) – See all my reviews

We just finished watching Morse from one through thirty-three here in Japan over 8 months. So, for the Remorseful Day, we had a little sayonara party for the inspector, Lewis and strange Strange. Well, the thing that I didn't like about the final string of episodes was the change in Lewis's character. He used to be so easy going and Morse's idiosyncrasies never bothered him at all. But in the later stories, Lewis is so irritable all the time. I didn't like that.

But, I will miss Morse and Lewis.

Ensanguining the skies / How heavily it dies / Into the west away; / Past touch and sight and sound / Not further to be found, / How hopeless under ground / Falls the remorseful day.
