Morse investigates Oxford murder

Inspector Morse (the late John Thaw) is called in when an eminent environmentalist is murdered minutes before he is due to give a controversial lecture at Beaufort College, Oxford.

In another screening of "The Infernal Serpent", Oscar-nominated Tom Wilkinson, star of In The Bedroom, and Cheryl Campbell are among the guest stars as Morse takes on the might of Oxford University and reveals skeletons in the cupboard of a respected academic family.

Geoffrey Palmer plays the Master of Beaufort College, Copley-Barnes, and as Morse attempts to penetrate the closely-knit Oxford community, he discovers the tense and troubled background to the Copley-Barnes family. Tom Wilkinson plays Jake Normington.

"The Infernal Serpent" is directed by Shakespeare In Love’s John Madden and adapted from Colin Dexter’s novel by Alma Cullen. Inspector Morse is a Carlton production.

Inspector Morse: The Infernal Serpent airs Friday, 5 April at 20:30 on the ITV1 network.
