A new season of the detective-thriller series commences tonight. The setting is Oxford, summer 1967, two weeks after the last series’ events. D.C. Morse (Shaun Evans) and D.I. Thursday (Roger Allam) remain devastated by the sudden disappearance of the latter’s daughter, Joan. The young detective Morse distracts himself by focussing on his work, investigating the suspicious drowning of a scientist who was part of a research team working on an early computer. At first it appears to be suicide, until two more bodies are found in the river. This prequel to the long-running Inspector Morse series is a good substitute for fans suffering from Sherlock withdrawal.
