    I'm currently watching the Inspector Morse series. It's being repeated here on our provincial public broadcaster. I watch a lot of the detective series: Hinterland, Shetland, A Touch of Frost, Inspector Lynley, Poirot, Miss Marple, Lewis. I can watch them as repeats too because I've seen so many. I've seen so many I can't remember who did it in each episode so I can watch repeats.

    Just finished the recent season of Endeavour yesterday, and I really enjoyed Lewis - but it's been a long time since I seen Morse. I'm due a visit - I wonder how well it holds up?

    Morse at his grumpiest comes out with some great lines. I can't remember the episode but Morse is outside washing the Jag with opera blaring in the background when Lewis comes up and tells him there's been another murder. Without looking up Morse grunts, 'I hope it's the landlord at the Bullfinch, Lewis - teach him to keep his beer properly...'.

    My friend Alma Cullen whom I worked with in Liverpool libraries, is a playwright and wrote several Morse episodes. Sounds like her sense of humour!

    I’ll be curious to see how close the younger character in Endeavour is like his adult self, in Morse.

    Oooh! I’ll watch it tonight, can’t wait. The twist with Duncan last week kinda had me gripped. I like Duncan, I think he’s not a killer, but his ladykiller ways have caught up with him, it seems...

    Have any of you come across this blog?
    https://morseandlewisandendeavour.com

    Some guy has summarized every episode of Morse, Lewis and Endeavour. Plot summary, cast, what music is played, art hanging on the wall, literary references, locations, connections with other episodes and other series. It's very thoughtful and thorough. There are characters in Morse who show up again as their younger selves in Endeavour. And have you ever wondered what music was played in each episode? It's all there. The entire Morse universe is detailed. It's a treasure trove of information. Be careful, there are spoilers, so if you haven't seen the episode and you're reading about it you might find out who dunnit.

    Wow! Thanks senza! I’ll pass that link round my friends.
    Watching Endeavour, we’ve been enjoying references both spoken and visual, to other TV programmes and news items of the time. Good fun.
    ‘elgars ghost’ might have noticed a couple of weeks ago, when they were in Birmingham, there was a ‘Crossroads Motel’ at ‘King’s Oak’

    I noticed that! I thought it was very clever, and it still fit in the tale...
