Colin Dexter graduated from Cambridge in 1953. He spent his years wholly in education until his retirement in 1988, first teaching Greek and Latin, then moving to Oxford in 1966 to work for the University Examination Board.
His first Inspector Morse novel, Last Bus to Woodstock, was published in 1975, and in addition to winning the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger Award twice — for The Way Through the Woods and The Wench is Dead — Colin Dexter has also been awarded Silver Daggers by the CWA for Service of all the Dead and The Dead of Jericho. The most recent novel, Death Is Now My Neighbour, became a number one bestseller on hardback publication in 1996.
The Inspector Morse novels have been adapted for the small screen, with huge success, in Central Television's series starring John Thaw and Kevin Whately. In 1993 Colin Dexter achieved a long-held ambition — a speaking part (two words) in the seventh Inspector Morse TV series.
