"These are the major passions of the curmudgeonly, stubborn, impulsive Inspector Morse or the Thames Valley PD. Surprising how many killings occur in the stately old town of Oxford! How fortunate we are to have the wonderfully cerebral novels of Colin Dexter to rely on, and his brilliant creation, the sometimes-wrong but always dedicated Morse. It's always interesting to witness the sometimes truculent interaction between the confirmed bachelor Morse and his protege, the married-with-kids, by-the-book Welshman, Lewis. Morse does not suffer fools, and though many have mistaken Lewis for a country bumpkin or naif, he is the stabilizing influence and the voice of reason in the duo. So often Morse leaps to conclusions only to be reined in by the steady Lewis.
There are many fine British detective series: Touch of Frost, Cracker, Wire in the Blood, Midsomer, etc., but Morse is at the top.
One question: I don't own any of the DVD's. They are always too expensive. Why is that? The only time I've ever watched them is when they are on PBS. I keep hoping for the price of a used set on Amazon to get down to maybe $25 US, but they're always twice that. Such a shame."
Good Mysteries, Good Deal

"Our shipment arrived on time and we have enjoyed all six Morse mysteries. DVDs are all in first rate condition. I like the six disc package, as opposed to getting six seperate DVDs."

"What's not to love about Inspector Morse! He is his own man and is an interesting character study in general. He does crossword puzzles, likes his 'pints', doesn't suffer fools, neither the pedestrian kind nor the fellow police kind. His faithful partner Lewis is always at his side, although there are times when Lewis get's aggravated with him, they nonetheless, have a close relationship and Morse depends on him more than he ever admits.
I've seen him age in this wonderful series and was deeply saddened by not only his passing in the final episode of the series, but also his passing in reality! I will always be a fan of both John Thaw and Inpector Morse."
