Inspector Morse

The Way Through the Woods

Series 8 - Episode 1 The Way Through the Woods



A man accused of murdering five people is killed in prison shortly before going to trial, wrapping up a lot of loose ends and saving the state the expense of keeping him behind bars indefinitely. Alas, Morse cannot help wondering why the body of one of his victims was never found - and the chance discovery of a corpse gives him the perfect opportunity to investigate further. John Thaw and Kevin Whately star.
