Where to Watch Inspector Morse & Inspector Lewis | WETA UK

Unfortunately, 2013 saw Detective Inspector Robert Lewis and Detective Sergeant James Hathaway hanging up their hats and resigning from the police force. This marks the series end, and new episodes will no longer be coming. Though the series has finished, this is far from the end here at WETA UK.  Wednesdays on WETA UK will still be jam-packed with episodes of Inspector Morse, Masterpiece Mystery! Inspector Lewis, and starting July 24th, Masterpiece Mystery! Endeavour.

Inspector Morse

The series that started it all continues on Wednesday nights on WETA UK. Watch Inspector Morse solve complex cases with the help of his partner, the man himself, Detective Lewis. In tonight’s episode, Inspector Morse looks into the historic case of murdered woman that he suspects may not have been correctly solved. As he delves into this case, his own health takes a turn for the worse! Inspector Morse airs every Wednesday night at 8:00pm on WETA UK. Watch the trailer!

Masterpiece Mystery! Inspector Lewis

Inspector Lewis’ journey hasn’t ended here at WETA UK, and the compelling crimes continue to be solved on Wednesday nights. Tonight, Inspector Lewis investigates the mysterious resurfacing of an assumed dead rock star. Nothing is simple with this case, as the body of an orphan boy turns up that has a connection to the band. To make things even stranger, the band is one that Lewis used to be a big fan of! Masterpiece Mystery! Inspector Lewis airs every Wednesday night at 9:00pm on WETA UK. Watch the trailer!

Masterpiece Mystery! Endeavour

Inspector Morse is undoubtedly one of the greatest inspectors of all time, but he wasn’t always the expert you see in Inspector Morse. Everyone has an origin, and on Masterpiece Mystery! Endeavour, you can witness the early days of Endeavour Morse. Beginning on July 24th, catch the all new series that shows Morse’s early days at Oxford University, where he almost decides he doesn’t want to work in the police department at all! Brand new episodes of Masterpiece Mystery! Endeavour will begin airing Wednesday nights at 10:30pm on WETA UK. Watch the trailer!

Wednesday join us at 9:00pm for the WETA UK premiere of the new drama Death in Paradise. A light-hearted detective series which takes place against a stunning Caribbean island backdrop. Sent to the tiny island of Saint-Marie to solve a mysterious murder, quintessentially British cop Richard Poole is a total fish out of water. His new partner, DS Camille Bordey is instinctive, feisty and brilliant, and the rest of the team certainly has their own unique way of doing things. Though Richard would never admit it, they make the perfect team, and with a new mind-boggling mystery to solve every episode, Death in Paradise will intrigue and tantalize. Also airs Thursdays at 4:00pm & Saturdays at 6:00pm.

Wednesday at 10:00pm kick off season 1 of our new series Dalziel & Pasco. Andy Dalziel does not suffer fools gladly, but he has even more trouble with what he calls the "smart arses" of this world.

Pascoe is one of the new breed of career police officers, armed with a degree in Social Sciences, a caring attitude and a sharp brain. At first Pascoe is somewhat taken aback by his brash and ballsy boss, but it soon becomes apparent there is more to Andy Dalziel than meets the eye. Also airs Thursdays at 5:00pm & Saturdays at 7:00pm
