Last show for Morse.

VETERAN actor John Thaw is quitting Britain's favourite TV detective show - because he's bored.

Thaw, 56, who has starred as Inspector Morse for 13 years, said last night: "I can't get enthusiastic for it, so it's time to go.

"We have done all the Colin Dexter books that are worth filming.

"They would have to get another writer to create a story and why bother doing that?"

Thaw, currently starring in ITV's Kavanagh QC, will make one more two-hour Morse programme based on the book The Wench Is Dead.

"It's the last one we can do really," he said.
