The device of a painfully ignorant young detective being told by his seniors how Oxford works was a bit laborious; and if it really was necessary for him to be told what the Cotswolds were, God help Oxford police!
I was disappointed too in the number of factual errors about Oxford, which would have had the pedantic Inspector Morse turning in his grave. No boat anywhere has a “team” and the cox would certainly not have used this word: all boats have crews. Oxford does not have a Mayor: it has a Lord Mayor. The leader of the council does not get a salary: he/she is just a councillor, so perhaps the authors meant the Chief Executive? The term “Christ Church College” is never used: it is just “Christ Church”. Wearing a bowler hat does not make the porter of an Oxford college a bulldog: the bulldogs were the Proctor’s men (university police, long abolished). The term Isis is nothing to do with an Egyptian goddess but is an abbreviation of Tamesis, the Latin name of the River Thames.
However, reading some of the other reviews, and not being an Oxford graduate (!), or any graduate at all, I was rather surprised to see how many errors about Oxford there were. These things matter if specifically Oxford and not just any University town.
I too know that Councillors do not get a salary, only expenses and that it is rowing crew, not team, and the origin of the name of the river. Come on editors.
