My Top Ten Inspector Morse Stories - No 6 The Wench Is Dead

A new mystery - just a read away!

THE WENCH IS DEAD… (First screened on UK TV 11th November 1998, writer Malcolm Bradbury.) This is brilliantly acted story when you consider that John spent nearly all the time lay in a hospital bed.

So he was only able to use his eyes and face to express what he was thinking. When Morse had to have that tube put down his throat he looks so terrified and helpless I truly felt for him.

I think Judy (Loe) was a fantastic co-star second only to Joanna in my book. I love the bit where Morse and Adele are sitting on the sofa and she asks him a crossword clue and it makes him jump up out of his seat because he's got an idea…cool!
See you all tomorrow!

Yes hemant you're right! John Thaw could act so BRILLIANTLY with his eyes couldn't he? Or really just in his thoughts - and then it came out in his eyes, his manner. I have rarely (if ever) seen any actor that can do that so well!
