Round Up of January 2021 Posts + Facebook Posts Not Posted on my Website.

Hello everyone and welcome to my end of the month round up.

Not only will I provide links to the posts I put up on the website in January but also the posts I put on my Facebook that were too small to make a full website post.

Here is the link to my Facebook page if you are not already a member. click this link Morse and Lewis and Endeavour FB page.

From January 2nd. I see they still have a picture of John Thaw on the wall of the Morse Bar. However, as I mentioned to the bar staff on my last visit, the picture is from when John was filming Kavanagh QC not Inspector Morse.

From January 7th.

As many of you will know I recently wrote the first of two posts on all the Oxford Colleges utilized in the Morse series. As I wrote on the post I wanted to be 100% sure of all identifications before mentioning them in my posts. In the episode Last Seen Wearing I wasn’t sure of my ID of the scene in a library with Morse and Mrs Philipson.

So I wrote to Christ Church and a lovely man, James, wrote back to verify that it was indeed Christ Church Upper Library. So, I have updated my post with this new information. Interestingly, James mentioned that Christ Church does not use the word ‘college’. So, it’s Christ Church not Christ Church College.


From January 13th.

Evening Standard newspaper article. ‘Shaun Evans: ‘The handsome stranger? I’m totally miscast’. Click the following link – SHAUN EVANS


From January 15th.

There are times when I feel my brain’s cylinders are not firing in unison, if at all. During Sunday’s live stream of the pilot episode of Endeavour I mentioned that the house that is used for the location of Endeavour’s lodgings was the same house he eventually buys in the episode Degüello. I was wrong.
I was searching the episode ‘Girl’ (Series 1, Episode 1) for potential scenes to use for my weekly Twitch photoshops when I realised my mistake. The house where Endeavour is sent by Thursday to look into the death of a young girl is the house he eventually buys. The scene in ‘Girl’ is also the first time Endeavour meets Strange.
The top photo is from Girl and the bottom from Degüello.
I blame the cold weather for the brain malfunctions.

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.

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.

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

  1. Hi Chris. Thanks very much for all your hard work on this website. I don’t know how you’ve found the time alongside your university studies, to complete the second part of your post, portraying the filming locations of all the Oxford colleges used, during the original Morse series. Thank you once again, Chris, as it is always interesting to read your many articles on the Morse universe.

    Can I just ask one question, regarding your filming locations post, on the Oxford colleges. We previously, discussed, “Last Seen Wearing”, and after kindly giving up your own time, writing to Christ Church, we now have verification, that Christ Church’s upper library was used for filming. You have updated the post and placed the photo of Morse and Sheila Phillipson in Christ Church’s upper library, thanks. Are you still awaiting clarification for the overhead Quad scene, in front of Christ Church library, where we see John Thaw pass Colin Dexter? In addition, are you also still awaiting clarification for the scene where Morse and Sheila Phillipson leave a college gate? I thought they left the Canterbury gate of Christ Church, because the gate is at the junction of Oriel Square and Merton Street. This makes sense, as Morse and Sheila then walk into Oriel Square, where Lewis spots the pair of them from his car. Perhaps you considered those brief scenes unnecessary to depict on your web page. I just wondered, and I hope you don’t mind me asking.

    That is all for now. Thank you Chris, and take care.

  2. Sorry about a small mistake above. I accidentally missed out a few words of one sentence, which I will now show in brackets. I should have said, “You have updated the post, and placed the photo of Morse and Sheila Phillipson in Christ Church’s upper library, (on part one of your Oxford college filming locations, web page) thanks”.
