A committed bachelor with a penchant for beautiful women and opera, Inspector Morse does his best crime solving over several pints at lunch. Morse is aided by the trustworthy DI Lewis, played by the affable Kevin Whately. The crimes are studious and labyrinthine, much like the Oxford backdrop in which the beloved show was set. Based on the books of Colin Dexter, the series inspired the spinoff Inspector Lewis and the much more engrossing period mystery Endeavour.
