We all knew Colin had been unwell for sometime but his death will still be a shock to us all. There are going to be many words written and said about Colin over the next few days and I doubt I can add anything new.
However, I will try. How does one quantify the pleasure an author has given over more than 30 years? By the amount of joy his writing has brought to this blog reader? The number of times one has read all his novels, watched the TV programmes based on his creation, Endeavour Morse?
Pleasure in this context is not quantifiable. I think it is enough to write that his writing, his creation, have brought immeasurable pleasure to me over the past 30 years and his passing has saddened me to the core.
My tribute to Colin is to repost my videos on his appearances in the original Inspector Morse series.
