"Inspector Morse" Death Is Now My Neighbour (TV Episode 1997) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (2)
Internal evidence suggests very strongly that this was originally intended to be the last-ever segment of the long-running "Inspector Morse" series. The question of Morse's retirement (and also that of Chief Superintendent Strange) is raised several times; the episode went out ten years after the series began; viewers finally learn Morse's first name; and, to clinch matters, he finally gets himself a girl-friend who loves him back and doesn't turn out to be a criminal of some sort, or to get murdered.
