Inspector Morse and I Colin Dexter

A former crossword champion, teacher and student of the classics, Colin Dexter wrote several textbooks before his first novel featuring the beer-drinking, crossword-solving Inspector Morse was published in 1975. Great success followed: between 1987 and 2000, thirty three episodes of the TV series featuring John Thaw and Kevin Whateley were screened. Mr. Dexter has been awarded the coveted Diamond Dagger for services to crime writing, an OBE for services to literature, and the freedom of the City of Oxford.
