Colin Dexter the Creator of “Inspector Morse” has Died aged 86 years. Colin Dexter wrote the most wonderful stories about “Inspector Morse” the man he created and was part of British TV for such a long time. Even to this day you will finds episodes of “Inspector Morse” being repeated on tv, its been on tv for weeks now and I always make a point of watching every episode.
I fell in love with the writing the character Inspector Morse that Colin Dexter created. Morse had been to Oxford was an extremely clever, private loner. Loved natural Beer, fine Wines, Opera and the company of charming women when he could.
Case after case would come Inspector Morse’s way and that of his faithful Sergeant Robbie Lewis. Chief Inspector Morse along with Lewis would have to solve all these puzzling Murders that took place every week. It was the most intelligent programme on tv and I simply loved it.
Colin Dexter the creator, wrote the most mind gripping stories, and I shall remember him as a fine writer.
It is so sad that not only John Thaw who portrayed Chief Inspector Morse for all those years, died some years ago but now Colin Dexter who like Alfred Hitchcock, always it seemed, liked to make an appearance a cameo appearance in every episode. I am not sure, but I think “Inspector Morse” was sold to American TV.
Remembering Colin Dexter.
