From Books to Box

The man behind the phenomenally successful series of Inspector Morse novels presents an entertaining show in which he explains the trials and tribulations involved in transforming full-length novels in to 90-minute screen dramas, many of which starred the much-loved Manchester actor John Thaw.
Colin Dexter’s first Inspector Morse novel, Last Bus to Woodstock, was published in 1975 after a wet and windy family holiday in North Wales, and, 13 novels later, the final instalment, The Remorseful Day, was published in 1999.
