    Welcome to the Rebus guide at TV.com. Rebus is a series based on the novels of Ian Rankin, one of Scotland's well known contemporary writers of mysteries. Detective Inspector John Rebus of Edinburgh CID takes to the streets in search of the criminals committing the murders, drug dealing, money laundering and other crimes in the city. The first season of Rebus featured John Hannah as the eponymous detective and was jointly produced by Scottish Television and Hannah's own production company, Clerkenwell Films. Rankin was said to feel that Hannah was miscast in the role.

By this time, Hannah had decided to move on and the show was put on hold pending a search for a new star. New feature-length episodes, now featuring an all-new cast and with Ken Stott in the lead role, were filmed in 2005. The show was cancelled in Feruary 2008, following an announcement by Stott that he would not make any further episodes. Rebus was an SMG production.moreless

    Welcome to the Inspector Morse guide at TV.com. Morse (played by the late John Thaw) is not the ideal policeman, his superiors think. He is prickly and sarcastic, a bachelor, an Oxford graduate, an intellectual snob, and he doesn't always follow protocol strictly as he should. But he gets results. Sergeant Lewis (Kevin Whately) is a plain family man, he follows orders, and the thing that keeps him from advancing in the Force is that he seems a little slow. The show takes place in and around Oxford, where many a mysterious murder occurs. Colin Dexter, the author of the Morse novels from which most of these dramas developed, appears in cameo roles in very nearly every episode. The books are: Last Bus to Woodstock (1975), Last Seen Wearing (1976), The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn (1977), Service of All the Dead (1979), Winter's Crime (short stories) (1981), The Dead of Jericho (1981), The Riddle of the Third Mile (1983), The Secret of Annexe 3 (1986), The Wench Is Dead (1989), The Jewel That Was Ours (1991), The Way Through the Woods (1992), The Daughters of Cain (1994), Morse's Greatest Mystery and Other Stories (1995), Death Is Now My Neighbour (1996) and The Remorseful Day (2000). Barrington Pheloung's theme tune for the series is based on the Morse code for m-o-r-s-e. Less well known is the fact that he weaves other characters' names into the score in Morse code at suitable moments. Pheloung appears as a choirmaster in The Remorseful Day, the last episode of the series featuring John Thaw. The Inspector Morse concept waslater revived by ITV,with spin-off seriesLewis (starring Kevin Whately as Inspector Lewis) and prequel episode Endeavour featuring Shaun Evans as a young Endeavour Morse.moreless

    ITV (ended 2000)
    Welcome to The Ruth Rendell Mysteries guide at TV.com. The guide takes in over thirty hours of crime drama productions, based on the novels and short stories of Ruth Rendell. In most of these, veteran actor George Baker plays Chief Inspector Reg Wexford of Kingsmarkham (a fictional town in the real English county of Hampshire), with Christopher Ravenscroft as his partner-in-detection, Inspector Mike Burden. Wexford's wife Dora is played by Louie Ramsay. She had known George Baker for many years, but they became close while working on the series and married in real life. The Inspector Wexford stories were filmed on location in and around Romsey, Hampshire, and most were broadcast under The Ruth Rendell Mysteries banner. In 1992, having exhausted the supply of Wexford stories, Meridian started adapting other Rendell mysteries, thus belatedly justifying the use of the confusing umbrella title for the show. The final episode was broadcast under the Inspector Wexford banner, and this is the title used for DVD releases and repeat broadcasts of the Wexford stories on the ITV network.moreless
