The case for the Lovers Lane Killer is shut when the accused is murdered in a prison fight, before his trial. Another murder occurs and it is now up to Morse to track the killer down...

The Way Through the Woods was originally screened on television as a special episode. In this Morse outing we see more than our fair share of the tension that exists between Morse and Lewis over the identity of the Lovers Lane Killer.

A good, solid plot holds this episode together as the acting tends to wane a little towards the end. We also get to see a glance of Colin Dexter in the opening scene as he plays the man at the concert with Morse.

Not one of my favourites but still a good episode.

Morse and Lewis are plunged back into the heart of Oxford's academic world when a retired university member, Dr Felix McClure is stabbed to death. What appears as a routine investigation soon becomes far more complex...

The Daughters of Cain is an excellent episode and definitely one of my favourites. A very well executed plot and the case really starts to pick up when Morse discovers that the dead professor, a suicidal student and his college room mate, are all in love with the same woman.

Poor old Lewis is still awaiting his promotion and Colin Dexter makes another brief appearance as the man on crutches in the John Ratcliffe Hospital waiting room.
