Filming in Jericho, Oxford: Inspector Morse Locations. (Including Bookbinders Pub)

Hello everyone and welcome to more filming from when I was in oxford in April 2019.

This film is set in the Oxford area of Jericho where famously the first episode of Inspector Morse was filmed.

Before we get to the video please take the time to read through the following. Please take the time to not only subscribe here on my website but also on Youtube and Twitch. I need 50 followers on Twitch to become affiliated and at the moment I have 33 followers. being affiliated means I can attract advertisers and hopefully make a little money from my work.

I would like to say a huge thank you to those who have become Patrons of the site and also a huge thank you to those who have made donations. What do I mean by Patrons?

What is Patreon? Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. It’s a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, with ways for artists to build relationships with their subscribers, or “patrons”.

With Patreon you set up how much you wish to pay monthly. There are three tiers, $5, $10 and $15. It’s like paying for a magazine subscription. With enough support I am hoping to continue creating posts for many years.

Patreon primarily uses Paypal which is easy to join and a safe way to send money.

Here is my Patreon account where you can read more about it,

I have started my own Facebook page. It is primarily an extension of this website. I decided to start the Facebook page as there has been times when I have an update to a review post or some interesting news or information but it was all to small to make into a full blown post here on my website. So, come and join and keep up-to-date with all that happens in the Morse universe.

  1. Thanks Chris for your detective work in Oxford!
    Nice that you alternate with some real shots from the episode.
    Will be in Oxford in September again and have a look for my self as you did all the frontwork.



  2. Hi Chris
    Thank you for the interesting video. I wonder which back wall Morse is climbing over when Lewis catches him in the Dead of Jericho? Maybe the now ivy clad one shown in your video. I agree that the interior of the Bookbinders is nothing like that shown in The Dead of Jericho, it is much more like a typical ‘70’s working men’s club (along with typical landlady!) and I would be inclined to think filmed elsewhere. Although sparse enough to be a film set I think the furniture is so typical I’d be inclined to think it was another genuine venue.
    Thanks again for the video, I like the way you cut it with the scenes from Morse.

  3. So cool to see the quiet river. Was thinking about Hathaway going to Zoe Kenneth’s place in Jericho,would like to have seen it,ohh wait ,it blew up,bluuu…


  4. Not changed that much, really, has it? And the boat hire company is still College Cruisers.
    I used to wander around Jericho a lot when I was at OUP. Great place for pubs and restaurants.

  5. Enjoyed that. Had a wander around Jericho on a recent trip to Oxford and saw Combe Lane and went into the Bookbinders, which does good French food. In the Morse episode, Dead of Jericho, the pub was a Morrells pub, Morrells being the main Oxford brewery, but their pubs were taken over in 1998 and most sold again to Greene King in 2002.
