This 1988 episode from the second series of the long-running Inspector Morse series sends Morse (John Thaw), that cultured curmudgeon of a police detective, on the six-month-old case of a missing schoolgirl,
“She’s dead”, he proclaims, dismissing the case as a dead end and a waste of time, but true to form he relentlessly investigates and uncovers something he didn’t expect : a conspiracy at the girl’s private school that results in murder,

Still early in the series (it lasted until The Remorseful Day in 2000), we find Morse still getting comfortable with his young partner Sergeant Lewis (Kevin Whately), the family man who would rather head home than end the day with a pint with his partner,
Morse is up to his old tricks, sneaking scotch in coffee mugs at crime scenes and taking beer breaks, and Thaw plays the loner detective without a hint of self consciousness as he shifts his theories around throughout his investigations,
And in the best tradition of British TV mysteries, this is a mystery solved not by shoot-outs or car chases but by relentless investigation and sheer brain power (helped along by a couple of pints of ale),
Elizabeth Hurley (Austin Powers) and Julia Sawalha (Saffron from Absolutely Fabulous) have small parts as schoolgirls questioned by Morse and Lewis,
