In knowing Morse’s first name, I always thought I’d win a point in a pub quiz one day. It never came up, and I’ve never done a pub quiz. It isn’t likely to be a question now anyway, but I watched this programme last night and absolutely loved it! Catch it on the ITV i-player thing if you haven’t seen it yet. It was a great story-line and the theme tune made me go all tingly! I loved the (slightly cheesy) exchange between the new Morse, and the character played by John Thaw’s daughter: ‘Have we met before?’ ‘Perhaps in another life’ !
My only criticism is that there are clearly not enough British actors to go round. I kept thinking I’d seen them in Morse, so I had IMDB open and it turned out 2 of the main characters had been in episodes of Lewis, and one was the driving instructor what dunnit in an old Morse.
I really hope ITV turn it into a proper series.
