I think Morse`s thing about being a poor policeman but a good detective is a very good description of him.

Watch the mouth, it reveals what the eyes try to hide.

When he`s solved that particular clue, then he`s back to reality and he doesn`t like it. I think that`s why he drinks more than most.

I was involved in school plays, but when I left school I did a couple of odd jobs as a baker`s apprentice and then as a fruit market porter in Manchester.

I`m not an instinctive actor.

In the same way he`s fascinated by crosswords, the puzzle of solving the murder is what drives him on.

We were using a hand-held camera to film the scene when Morse collapses. The camera wouldn`t start. Three times they said action and it still wouldn`t work. To this day, they still don`t know what was wrong.

The writers have built up the Morse and Lewis characters, and their relationship. You`re fascinated how these two men get to the result they get to.

We all know that somebody did it, but how did they find the answer?

I think sadly that Morse thinks that he can exist on his own and he only realises at the end that he can`t and never really has been able to. I feel sorry for him.

There is no more final end than death.

Parts like Morse don`t grow on trees. He`s a great character.

You can`t say to someone with a brain like Morse, This is the way you do it, regardless of the circumstances; this is the way it is done.

I feel very proud to have created a character that is so respected. On the other hand, as an actor, I have more freedom now to do other things.

I`m an introspective person. I`m not an extrovert.
