Inspector Morse is a character from the detective novels by British author Colin Dexter. John Thaw stars as a most unlikely detective in this popular television mystery series. Inspector Morse is a gentle romantic, out of shape, craving good beer, classical music, and difficult crossword puzzles. But aided by trusted sidekick Sergeant Lewis (Kevin Whately), Morse still gets the job done.

"Dead On Time," Parts One & Two - In these episodes, Morse investigates the apparent suicide of Henry Fallon who, suffering from a fatal disease, appears to have shot himself. But a simple suicide turns into a murder investigation with only one man seemly capable of committing the crime.

Featuring Joanna David ("Pride And Prejudice"), Samantha Bond ("Die Another Day," "The World Is Not Enough"), and Adrian Dunbar ("The Crying Game," "Suspicion").
