Series 3 - Episode 4 Coda



Young Detective Constable Morse might soon be a sergeant after he sits his exams, finishes them so early he still has time to do a crossword, and announces how “easy” they were to lumpen Sgt Strange.

Maybe it’s time he moved on, as in the last episode of the series, Morse’s relationship with his boss, the inimitable Fred Thursday (the great Roger Allam) is rockier than it’s ever been. The schism comes when Morse (Shaun Evans) witnesses Fred’s pragmatic brutality as he “interviews” a snitch.

It’s an episode with story strands that that run all over the place, including an odd request from Morse’s old tutor. But when we finally say goodbye, the parting is sorrowful.


The detective is approached by a former mentor from his college days, who asks Morse to ensure the safety of his wife. However, the assignment leaves him contemplating his future with the police force. Meanwhile, a murder in the world of fashion stirs up old gangland conflicts in the city. Detective drama series, starring Shaun Evans as the young Inspector Morse.
