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

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 »

Quality drama from ITV for a change !
2 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was a massive fan of Morse and was both excited and dreading this at the same time. Quit simply, excitement won !

I truly hope that ITV make this one off drama into a series, it was wonderfully acted (great performances from both Shaun Evans and Roger Allum), well scripted and was of course set in Oxford the home of Morse. I won't spoil the story for people that haven't seen it but suffice to say (as is usual in most Morse episodes) the culprit isn't any of the usual suspects.

All of the supporting cast play their parts well but Evans and Allum really do shine and seem to have that on screen chemistry that worked so well for John Thaw and Kevin Whately. I'm already planning to watch this again later on in the week as I'm sure I've missed some of the subtle nuances and twists that made Morse so great to watch.

Well done ITV, finally you're matching the BBC for quality drama instead of dreary reality and talent shows.
