Inspector Morse Recast - OTHERS TO FOLLOW?

I am not sure how i feel about Inspector Morse being Ret conned and/or Prequelled (are those the terms you’d use?) – The beloved novel hero so valiantly played by the late John Thaw has been recast with Shaun Evans in the role.

The TV Movie “Endeavour” will be set in the 60’s and show the younger days of the detective, before he was the detective we all know and love. The show has the creator’s blessing with Colin Dexter supporting the film, although I will wait and see.

I never even followed Lewis to be honest, but I will withhold judgement, and hope that they Realise it was John Thaw that made the show to a certain degree.

Rebooting and retelling has been happening for a while now, so it’s interesting to see the trend moving into Television in the UK to.

Sherlock rebooted/modernised
Barnabus has been replaced with a cousin
Now Morse has been retconned.

Surely what’s next, might i suggest -

Dempsey and Makepeace Reboot (Now that might actually work?)

And PLEASE BBC MAKE THIS

Spooks; Cold War

Who wouldn’t love to see a young Harry Pearce as a Bond Type cutting his way through Whitehall and the spying all over........Start the trend now!

Seriously Spooks; Cold War DO IT #

  2. I loved John Thaw as Inspector Morse, one of my favorite shows of all time. I can't imagine anyone else playing Morse, but maybe since it is Morse as a young man, rather than trying to do remakes of the old episodes, it may work. I haven't seen Shaun Evans enough to make a judgement now. I have been watching Lewis and I really like it. Not as good as Morse and Lewis together, but a good show and good cast.

    A young Harry Pearce...mmm..that might be interesting if the right actor was cast.
