    Some other location scenes which included some of the lovely pubs featured in the Inspector Morse series were filmed in places like Cowley, Kidlington, Thrupp, Godstow, Woodstock and Wytham all in Oxfordshire.

    If you visit Oxford there are a few Morse tours which take you around some locations including the pubs he used on those rare occasions he went for a beer. If you want to do it yourself I'm sure that on the Morse site the information is available there!

    I hate to spoil things, but (especially in some of the later episodes) buildings in other parts of the country were used as well.



    The fortnightly series which was published by de Agostini a few years ago included with each episode a "behind-the-scenes" magazine. One of the regular items in this series of magazines was a map of the locations used.



    If it is of interest, I can dig these out and post a few examples of "out-of-town" locations.

    Been watching the repeats on ITV (Twenty Years Of Inspector Morse) - still head and shoulders above all other British detective dramas:good acting,good pace,good plots. I have also being watching repeats of the original Taggart with the Mark McManus - better than the new ones.

    There are quite a few already listed on the IMDb. Not all of them are in Oxford

    Cheers

    Local brews round here are Wychwood Brewery (brewed near where I live ) and Hook Norton (Old Hooky )



    Then there's Old Speckled Hen - though that's brewed in East Anglia now i think, the late lamented Morlands got taken over by Greene King, who now seem to be buying every other brewery as well

    Wychwood retains a degree of independence, and keeps producing innovatively named beers. I liked their Bah, Humbug Christmas ale and their light summer beers are particularly good. They're now available in my local supermarket.

    One of the hotels in Oxford has a Morse themed wine bar now - given Morse's favourite tipple, is the irony lost on them?

    I remember it well.

    Liz isn't the greatest of actresses but she looked very good in that school uniform.
