TIME FOR MORE MORSE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Watch -

ANY­ONE tun­ing in to the open­ing episode of the sixth sea­son of this Bri­tish crime drama, set in the 1960s and a pre­quel to the long-run­ning In­spec­torMorse se­ries, will likely be a bit con­fused. Here’s some con­text: sea­son five ended with the shoot­ing death of DC Ge­orge Fancy (Lewis Peak) and the re­la­tion­ship be­tween DS En­deav­our Morse (Shaun Evans, pic­tured) and Joan Thurs­day (Sara Vick­ers) go­ing to the next level. Fast for­ward eight months to July 1969 and the team from the Cowley po­lice sta­tion has been dis­banded and is Morse, now sport­ing a mous­tache and a chip on his shoul­der, is in the sticks where the big­gest crimes are miss­ing live­stock and stolen trac­tors. But things change when Morse dis­cov­ers the body of a miss­ing school­girl while try­ing to re­cap­ture a run­away horse. The Cas­tle Gate CID get in­volved in solv­ing the case. Thurs­day is on board but so is an old ad­ver­sary of Morse’s – DCI Ron­nie Box (Si­mon Harrison) along with DS Alan Jago (Richard Rid­dell). A home­less teenager in­volved with drugs is an early sus­pect but Thurs­day also men­tions a sus­pect from an old mur­der case.
