Settling down for a 90 minute Morse, knowing it will be a little disappointing as not the wonderful John Thaw, but, if I am not mistaken, it's Rob the Abuser from The Archers!! Obviously had to turn it off. So wrong! angry

On TV or radio? He's got a very distinctive voice hasn't he?

R4 Extra. Honestly could have listened to just about anyone else but couldn't get past it... Kept seeing him criticizing Helen's dress.

I am aghast. I thought I read recently Colin Dexter had denied permission for any more portrayals of 'old' Morse. I thought, since John Thaw can't do it obviously, that was quite appropriate.

I'm a late-comer to Endeavour but have just reached the cliff-hanger at the end of Series 2, and I want more of Young Morse. Shaun Evans does it very well indeed. I have no TV so I await DVD - and it seems to me they've not put out Series 3 yet? Was intending to ask this on MN anyway ....

it was from 2007- philip glenister was lewis and now he would be the star.

He sounds v similar but it's not him. Also I think it's robert glenister?

Is it not Rob? Wow an aural doppelganger!

Have now googled - rob is Timothy Watson, morse is John shrapnel. You aren't wrong though - they do sound v similar!

Thanks for clarifying Petula.

I am listening to this - I agree that Morse sounds just like Rob (very unnerving). However, Debbie is in it!

Rob is playing Phillip the play's director.

Lawrence NOT Phillp

That's a bit sad if the actor who played Rob can't be in anything else. Poor guy, he shouldn't have acted so well.

Although actually just playing Rob. I thought this was an old production?

Not an old production but new for R4 not R4 Extra.

House of Ghosts.

Lost track now & will have to listen again!

I think Colin Dexter's objection was to people playing Morse on TV. I assume he must have given permission for this when it was first broadcast.
