The roots of the character Inspector Morse, long a mainstay of PBS' "Mystery!" (now "Masterpiece Mystery!") anthology, are explored in this prequel casting Shaun Evans as the character back when he was just a constable.
The 1960s-era Morse gets involved in a missing-persons case that prompts him to use the deductive skills destined to become so familiar to fans worldwide; Abigail Thaw, daughter of longtime Morse portrayer John Thaw, is in the supporting cast. *** (Not rated: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
