Ron and Anna, I thought of you last night as I watched the first episode of "Inspector Lewis", Series 2.  Granted, I do very much miss the late John Thaw's Inspector Morse, but I'm enjoying Inspector Lewis and Sargeant Hathaway more and more.  The best bit for me, at least in the episode I watched last night, is that there are so many shots of beautiful Oxford.  I'm sure some scenes were filmed indoors on a set, but they also provided a wealth of views of the City of Oxford, those "dreaming spires", the Bodleian Library, Radcliffe Camera, the river, and some wonderfully charming village and countryside scenes.  Oh, to be in Oxford!

As you mentioned Barbara, Morse is very much a location filmed series with additional bits in West London or Bray Film Studios, a bit south of Maidenhead, which it's heyday, was better known for churning out horror films. The villages around the Oxford area shown can also be occasonally seen in Midsomer Murders, and indeed, a number of Inspector Morse actors seem to resurface in Midsomer as well, a few years later. Anna Massey---daughter of Raymond Massey--is but one example appearing in Morse looking quite nice but a few years later in Midsomer's  Written In Blood, appears as the dreadful Honoria doing her distiguished family story of generaltions in England.

As C S Lewis said referring to the Eagle and Child in Oxford. Enjoyed many a golden session in front of a blazing fire with a pint close to hand!

Another favorite of mine, Paul - Midsomer Murders. 

"...a golden session in front of a blazing fire with a pint close to hand!"  It doesn't get much better than that, Ron!
