Inspector Morse 3.02 Last Enemy, The (1988)

Morse finds his job rather harder than usual thanks to the discovery of a body with no arms, legs or head… and his own toothache.

7/10

Though rather flatly directed, a superior script and sparkling work from a grumpier than usual John Thaw (Morse is suffering from toothache) and a cheerier than normal Kevin Whately (as Lewis) make this an solid addition to the series.

This Inspector Morse episode contains gruesome and unpleasant scenes, violence and sexuality.

Classified 15 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 15 years and over.
