"The first time I saw a few of the Inspector Morse series was on TV. I was immediately attracted to the script, acting and all. They were very natural and very realistic. Then I bought the whole DVD set (33 of them) and I am seeing them now one by one. They are amazing. Both acting and plot are intense. They make all those police stories you see on TV silly and childish.
Pricey, but still gotta have

"What can one say about the Inspector Morse series? Breathtaking settings, finely crafted story lines, engaging characters - one can go on and on.
These are pricey sets, notwithstanding that each one has 5 or 6 episodes, and considering somewhat marginal quality and the fact that they are not (and should be!) captioned. Nevertheless I'm hooked; I must have them all.
5-stars for content; 1 for presentation."
A Rare Talent

"Like all of the Inspector Morse mysteries, this set of six shows, made in the late 1980s, is superb in every respect. The late John Thaw still sets the gold standard for acting in a "police drama"--a term which inadequately sums up the complexity of both the character he portrays and the TV series from which the shows in this boxed set are drawn. These BBC productions are also a rare example of a TV seires that is better than the writings (novels by Colin Dexter) upon which they are based. Dexter is, at best, a mediocre writer. Not to be missed in this set of stories, incidentally, are some terrific British actresses, including Patricia Hodge, the alluring Sharon Maughan, and the lovely Mel Martin."
