In your article you mention in the first paragraph that we dont learn his first name untill the last episode, but that's not true. In series 10 episode 1 he reveals his name and the reason for it. It's called Death is now my neighbor and it's 1 of the best. TY for your time.
If you're talking about Inspector Morse then yes, I've watched them. I subscribe to a network called Acorn TV that carries British programming. I only vaguely remember the episode you're talking about but I know his name because I've also watched the series that is a prequel to Inspector Morse. Have you?
