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.

I have left in the original soundtrack and dialogue in the top version. In the second video I have removed some of the dialogue and original music and replaced it with a selection of the excellent Swingle Singers singing Johann Sebastian Bach.

With the death of my father a few years ago I have became my mum's full time carer. I am also in the process of writing a book on the TV series, Lewis.

  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’.
