September 15th – 17th 2023 The Inspector Morse Society 2023 Weekend in Oxford now available to book

8th August 2023 – The Society is sad to report the death of Dorothy Dexter, wife of Colin Dexter, who passed away peacefully at home following a recent stroke from which she never regained consciousness. She was only a couple of months away from celebrating her 92nd birthday. Our heartfelt condolences go out to her son Jeremy and daughter Sally.

June 9th – July 22nd – Roger Allam and Ian Mckellen to star in a new comedy by Ben Weatherill, Frank and Percy, at the Theatre Royal Windsor.

28th May 2023 – Don’t forget to tune into ITV1 at 8pm to see Kevin Whately in the Midsomer Murders episode For Death Prepare. Filmed in 2021 and shown in the States a year ago this is the 50th episode of the Neil Dudgeon era. Viewers may be forgiven for thinking that it is really a Lewis episode in which Lewis has gone under cover (just as he did in Deceived by Flight) to play the Major-General in The Pirates of Penzance in order to trap the person killing off various members of an amateur operatic group. It was nice to see Kevin promoted at last and in his new uniform singing! In 2012 Kevin made another cross-over in Gently in the Cathedral as Donald McGhee in George Gently … so the question has to be asked what will be his next appearance in a detective show? Betting has him turning up on Saint Marie in an episode of Death in Paradise soon!

May 2023 – One of our members is offering a full set of Inspector Morse videos free of charge to anybody who can collect in the Leicester area. Please send an e-mail to if interested.

Saturday 4th March 2023: Jericho resident John Mair is organising a day of Morse related events.

Sunday 26th February 2023: The very last series of Endeavour on ITV starts.

The decision to end the show at this point was agreed upon mutually by production company Mammoth Screen, screenwriter Russell Lewis, and stars Shaun Evans and Roger Allam.
