Listen To Radio Drama: Morse: In the Shallows. BBC Radio 4. 14th July 2018. Starring Neil Pearson and Anton Lesser.

Terrible things happen even in beautiful places and among highly educated people. Morse, Lewis and Strange are back on their criminally fertile Oxford patch – dealing with a mysterious pair of Oxford students who appear to be fish out of water, a Don found dead in the river, and an attractive philosopher who pleads with Morse to drop his investigation to save her career.

It’s still the early 1990s when computers, mobiles, digital media and sophisticated forensic techniques are not yet in use. Morse’s detection methods rely on instinct, acutely honed observational skills and dogged gumshoe perseverance.

Colin Dexter’s Oxford detectives feature in a story devised by former Morse TV writer Alma Cullen, adapted by Richard Stoneman.

The drama is around 90 minutes. Unfortunately, I cannot upload such a large file. For that reason I have broken the drama into chunks of around 20 minutes.
