Storyline

Morse and Lewis investigate the murder of fun-loving raconteur Harry Field, a mediocre artist with no real style to call his own, with many of his paintings featuring the same mystery woman. As they dig deeper into his past, they discover a possible link to art forgery. Meanwhile, Lewis considers trying for a promotion in Traffic Division. Written by Mark Limvere-Robinson

Ain't missbehavin'
26 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is for me one of the best Morse episodes.Freddie Jones is excellent as the father of the murder victim and he shows what a good actor he is. His scenes with John Thaw especially at the end are brilliant. Overall the story keeps you guessing until the end, with various twists in the plot. It also gives a good insight into the world of art.The scenery is fine and the whole episode has a "feel" about it, i've seen it several times and never tier of it. For Morse fans this episode has it all; Oxfordshire countryside, real ale, sophisticated suspects, stately home, an eccentric victim and lots of red herrings to keep you guessing.
