Hi everyone, I'm Alex and for my week of guest-blogging on Oxford Daily Photo I'm going to do a series on films and television programmes that are set or were filmed in Oxford. Each day I'm going to post a still from a different film or programme that features an Oxford location, along with a photo of that location now.
The first post is on Inspector Morse, the ITV series based on Colin Dexter's books that ran from 1987 to 2000. The still frame above is from the end of the first episode, the Dead of Jericho. A lot of the action in the episode takes place in Canal Reach, which as you might have guessed from the title is in Jericho. The actual street used for filming was Combe Road, just across from the Old Bookbinders pub, which also features in the episode.
