Overview

A guide to Oxford, as shown through the cameras of the makers of the Inspector Morse series. This much-loved series used as its backdrop the "sweet city of dreaming spires," but revealed this ancient city in more than its traditional light. The celebrated university buildings are there, but as a setting for crimes committed by corrupt academics, the "Gown." The other side of Oxford was portrayed, the "Town" and the countryside around, with its equally devious criminals. Grappling with them, and with growing technology, was an old-fashioned improbable sleuth, modern only in his lack of deference for his superiors. This new edition, updated with new material to include locations for the recent production of "Lewis," is a must-read for all Morse lovers, as well as providing much to interest and inspire locals and tourists alike.
