Description - The Oxford of Inspector Morse by Bill Leonard

The Oxford of Inspector Morse and Lewis is a comprehensive description of the locations used as setting for the complete Inspector Morse series and the first two series of Lewis. Although the cameras roamed nationally and internationally, the emphasis of the book is on the home base of the detectives, the university city of Oxford, which is revealed in an unconventional light. The celebrated university buildings were there but as a setting for crimes committed by corrupt academics, the 'Gown'. The other side of Oxford was also 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 edition, updated with new material to include Lewis and recent developments in Oxford, is essential reading for all lovers of the Oxford detectives, as well as providing much interest and inspiration for locals and tourists alike.
