Doctor Who Vs. Inspector Morse, Series 3

The third season of Central's classic crime drama series
was first screened on ITV in the winter of 1989.
Part two was based on Colin Dexter's sixth novel, The 
Riddle of the Third Mile (published in 1983), and the 
final mystery was adapted from the seventh Morse 
book, The Secret of Annexe 3 (issued in 1986).

CID's new pathologist, Dr. Grayling Russell.
