Editorial Reviews

To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Inspector Morse television series, starring the late John Thaw, Inspector Morse's Oxford revisits many of the wonderful locations and buildings that were featured in the series and looks at the creation of the Morse books and the television adaptation. It is not only a celebration and investigation into the work of author Colin Dexter and the television production team, but it is also a showcase of the inspirational beauty, history and tradition of Oxford itself. The program is presented by Dr. Antony Richards, a leading authority on the Inspector Morse series and features, among others, Colin Dexter, actor Kevin Whately (Inspector Lewis), composer Barrington Pheloung and producers Ted Childs, Chris Burt and Michele Buck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD about Morse's Oxford July 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
Over time, I have acquired two videos about Morse's Oxford. This newer one [25th Anniversary] is much better than the first one. More meaningful scenery shots and more interesting interviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tour anyone? August 9, 2012

I'm not sure if this DVD saved me a few thousand dollars or will make me spend a few thousand dollars going to London. It made me feel like I was really there, good job. I think I'll starting saving my money and go...

4.0 out of 5 stars Morse's Oxford October 22, 2012

Our family loved Morse, and by extension, Lewis, and Colin Dexter. Viewing the early days, the development, the various others who had a hand in writing, producing and directing the show, was like bringing it back, after these years. The only sad part was witnessing the "aging" of Dexter. The awareness that he seemed so frail, so aged, made me realize my own age. A friend once taught at Oxford and when I asked about Morse, he said his son often went to a local pub that was frequented by Dexter. He said Dexter was like one of the boys, friendly, have his pint, join the talk, and then leave. Made him, and Morse, by extension, seem real to me. This friend later sent me the huge obituary for John Thaw that he had found on the front pages of his newspaper. I saved it, though I'd be hard-pressed to locate it today.

I'd also recommend reading the biography of Morse (okay, John Thaw) written by his wife (or widow). If you enjoyed the Morse series, this DVD will bring some of it back to you.

Morse fans will rejoice in his Oxford, but its long on talk, and less on tour of England's greatest.university city.

This is a must to round out a collection of the Inspector Morse DVD Collection. It gives a larger picture of how the series was made.

Strangely enough I really liked this dvd. It's one of those odd documentaries the British put out where you think Monty Python had a hand in the "serious" bits. But I really found the interviews with cast and author informative and helpful. I've been debating doing a Morse-Lewis tour when I go to Oxford. I'm still debating that because I got lots of ideas from this.

I love Inspector Leewis and was wondering about DSI Morse. Decided to find out and ordered this and love it. Now my PBS station is running it on TV. But I like DSI Lewis better.

I haven't watched it yet. I thought it was a movie not a documentary about the
