Inspector Morse is one of BBC TV’s longest-running and most-loved fictional detectives. Actor John Thaw built an incredible fan base which spans several generations. For many, the idea of replacing him is tantamount to sacrilege. The last Morse production was 10 years ago. And so, it would seem only fitting that the BBC should try […]
