I believe the answer is:

morse

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

This could be a double definition.

'means of communication' is the first definition.
'morse' can be an answer for 'communication' (morse is a kind of communication). I am unsure of the 'means of' bit.

'tv detective' is the second definition.
(Inspector Morse)

'for' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for morse that I've seen before include "Oxford detective" , "Code using dots and dashes" , "Code inventor, Samuel" , "& 24 Across Encrypted language" , "Colin Dexter's fictional detective" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
