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
Format:DVD|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
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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
By zc
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic guide of Oxford, that I have always wanted August 16, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Morse was one of my favorite bbc mystery shows that was on pbs.

To see Oxford through his eyes was a pleasure, since his cases were mostly there.

I learned more than Oxford on his show because this is a special dvd that now another younger inspector is taking over, but no
one compares to Morse.

Every Morse fan should get this for their collection. Oxford is truly amazing..

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspector Morse's Oxford October 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Inspector Morse is awesome. We HIGHLY recommend his series to anyone who loves great British Mysteries. The Oxford tape, was essential in completing the series, as Oxford is every bit as important a character as Morse and Lewis themselves. Another brilliant series. Kudos to British Mysteries!

This is an excellent overview of all the Morse related spots in Oxford. It's also a great tool for planning your trip, if you want to take a Mores themed journey to Oxford. I really enjoyed this series, on film and in print. Highly recommended video for fans of the series.
