The dead of Jericho won't leave you dead

Whately really is stellar in this. His performances of DeBryn, whenever he shows, are stunning. As for Morse, one would almost believe it's Mr Thaw himself!

Whoever hit upon the idea of Lewis voicing these, I wonder did they know they had gold in audio form?

I'm so glad these exist. They're great to snuggle into bed with.

Some of the Morse plots work in the abridged versions but this one somehow doesn't - masterly narration by Kevin Whately but the plot feels disjointed and fractured somehow.
