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.
