Colin Dexter’s appearances in the Inspector Morse series.

These are videos of all Colin Dexter’s appearances in the series, Inspector Morse. Colin did not appear in the episodes, ‘Ghosts in the Machine’, ‘Promised Land’, ‘The Secret of Bay 5B’ and ‘Sins of the Father’. I don’t believe he appeared in the episode, ‘Death of the Self’ either but other fans have said that he appears in the crowd scene near the end of the episode. I have included that clip in this video so you can make up your own mind.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.

  1. Thanks. That was fun. We are scheduled to tour Oxford in June with Roads Scholars and Colin Dexter is scheduled to speak with the tour group. Looking forward to seeing Oxford in person. 

  2. In the press, Endeavour has been badmouthed(in ink)-“whipping a dead Morse”, ect,
    but I think it is great, even in its tradition! Not every Morse-Episode was soooo flawless,
    but we love him!…as we sympathize with his younger alter-ego!

  3. Noel, I believe Colin can be seen at the end of the bar, drinking a pint, at around 42 minutes in ‘Ghosts in the Machine’.
