Storyline

In Oxford, 1965, Endeavour Morse is a teetotaler and a classical music loving young constable who considers leaving the force after an unhappy affair but stays to join Inspector Thursday's investigation into the disappearance of schoolgirl Mary Tremlett. By deciphering a code based on crosswords in the local paper and Mary's poetry books, Morse deduces that Mary was meeting a lover and leads Thursday to the site of her murder. Following the suicide of Mary's boyfriend, student Miles Percival, Morse meets Miles' tutor, Dr. Stromming, the crossword setter who was seeing Mary but had an alibi for the murder. DS Lott, jealous of Thursday's regard for Morse's sharpness, attempts to incriminate Miles but then the police learn that Mary and other girls were paid to attend orgies by creepy car dealer Teddy Samuels, who has Lott in his pocket, as well as other worthies. As a result, both Thursday (a great mentor who also introduces the young constable to real ale) and Morse are carpeted. Morse... Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Dorothea Frazil asks "Have we met?", and when Morse replies "No, I don't think so", comments "Another life, then". This is a reference to Dorothea being played by Abigail Thaw, the daughter of John Thaw who made the character of Inspector Morse famous in Inspector Morse (1987). Her character name is also a reference to him, with "frazil" being a type of ice, and so D. Frazil = Thaw. See more »

Goofs

When we first see Morse, he is typing a document. The camera shows a close-up of the page as he types the word "tender". The centre of each letter is fuzzy, as if the ribbon is being pressed onto the paper even by the hollows of the letters, and there is a ghost image of each letter, as if the type bars have bounced on the paper and made a second impression close to the first one. However when Morse then rolls the page a few inches out of the typewriter and we see the sentences that he has been typing, these blemishes are not present. See more »

The Beginning is beautiful
3 January 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Like most Inspector Morse fans, I was really excited about how this prequel would hold up. I can honestly say it was fantastic, full of the same high quality scriptwriting that we have become used to from the original and its equally impressive spin-off Lewis...

I am not going to go into the plot, suffice to say it follows previous styles with the usual twists and turns.

What I enjoyed were spotting the little Gems in the program..watch out for Colin Dexter make his usual cameo appearance, the touching moment from John Thaw's daughter Abigail...Max is played to perfection that Peter Woodhouse would be proud...the final scene pulls the heartstrings...

ITV you have a sure fire winner here, please make a series
