FAMILY, friends and former colleagues of Colin Dexter packed Christ Church Cathedral to pay tribute to the much-loved Inspector Morse author.
Following the 86-year-old’s death in March last year, and a private funeral, the author’s family decided there should also be a memorial service, and Mr Dexter’s wife Dorothy and daughter Sally were among those gathered on Thursday afternoon.
“Colin was always extremely convivial, irreverent and ribald at times - he was a master craftsman in cluemanship.” Dean of Christ Church the Very Rev Prof Martyn Percy said he met Mr Dexter on a number of occasions, including the time he opened Cuddesdon fete.
“It was always such a delight for us to have him on set - he was such a benign presence and lovely company.” The 13 Morse books were translated into 29 languages and sold 4m copies in the UK alone, leaving an indelible mark on crime fiction.
Arriving for the service Laurence Fox, who played Det Sgt James Hathaway in Lewis, said Mr Dexter was ‘such a lovely man’ and described his cameos as ‘magical’.
