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. https://www.paypal.com/uk/home

UNCONFIRMED OR UNIDENTIFIED.

(If you can identify any of the following with certainty please let me know by contacting me either in the comments or via the ‘contact me’ link near the top right hand side of the page).

17 minutes – Morse enjoying a college meal. GREEKS BEARING GIFTS.

—————————————

23 minutes. – After the recital attended by Morse and Susan. Dead on Time.

It is difficult to make an accurate identification as we the viewer do not get to see much of the location. With all that ivy in the background it could be Exeter College or Lincoln College but I think it’s Hertford College. I have looked through the scene slowly and careful and I am close to 100% in believing it’s Hertford.

—————————————

29 minutes – John Brewster goes into Jane’s rooms. Deadly Slimber.

This location is not Oriel College. Unfortunately, I can’t identify it. I can’t even be sure it’s an Oxford College.

—————————————–

27 minutes – Morse interviews Julian Storrs. Death is Now my Neighbour.

I can’t be sure of this location. Brasenose or Oriel college.

——————————————

8 minutes – The tour group and Morse have dinner. I have read it mentioned that this is Brasenose College Dining Hall. But it isn’t. The Settling of the Sun.

—————————————

Beginning of the episode – A meeting of Fellows to decide the next master. Ghost in the Machine.

Other scenes in the episode show that Oriel College is being used as a location. Oriel is referred to as Courtney College. I cannot confirm this room is part of Oriel College. Someone on IMDB has written that this is University College.

Up until a few years ago I was my mum's full time carer. She died in, 2020, of Covid. I am now about to start my third year year at Edinburgh University studying for a second degree this one being English Literature. My other degree is in Ecological Science. At the moment I am attempting to write a novel.

  1. Chris, I agree with you that the scene in Dead on Time is probably Hertford. There is not much to go on but I think that the railings that Morse and Susan are stood by are in the Old Quad. Enter from Catte St, pass the lodge, turn left. I think they are stood there. David

  2. Hi Chris – did you see the announcement that S9 will be the last ? (And from what I gather will not be broadcast until 2023) – still struggling to figure out why they did another series….and more so why not broadcast in the 10th year of Endeavour ? Any idea ? Must admit I don’t have high expectations (apart from they will flog the hell out of it being officially the last) of the series…….I still wonder what changed during the filming of S8 which (despite denials) was quite clearly supposed to be the final series but somewhere along the way they changed tack.
