Can we find any link between Morse, Lewis and Endeavour besides Colin Dexter, the genius who created them all and had a cameo in a total of 50 episodes of the three series.
We can point to John Thaw and Abigail Thaw, his daughter who plays Dorothea Frazil in 'Endeavour'. But that lonely fact does not include Lewis. We can also mention the composer Barrington Pheloung, known for the theme and incidental music to the Inspector Morse television series, the sequel Lewis and the prequel Endeavour. But he didn't really perform in the series.
No, the only person who has performed in all three incarnations is Janis Kelly, heralded as a 'singing actress of near genius' by the Sunday Times, who 'has such natural grace and emotional eloquence that she cannot fail to touch the heart', according to the Independent.
