Morse (played by the late John Thaw) is not the ideal policeman, his superiors think. He is prickly and sarcastic, a bachelor, an Oxford graduate, something of an intellectual snob, and he doesn't always follow protocol. But he gets results.

The show takes place in and around Oxford, where many a mysterious murder occurs. Colin Dexter, the author of the Morse novels from which these dramas developed, appears in cameo roles in most episodes.
