Well crossword fans don't come any more dedicated than Chief Inspector Morse - the answer to our opening conundrum of course - and his creator Colin Dexter. But last year due to vision problems of his own Colin had to contemplate life without the daily challenge of three down, four across.


Dexter

I used to love coming home with a paper and sitting there and then seeing how quickly or of course how slowly I was coping with it.


White

I wonder whether you could imagine doing a crossword, which is very much a - usually a written exercise, just using the spoken word, could you imagine doing that?


Dexter

You mustn't query me about computers because I've written a lot of books in my life, let me tell you the truth and that is I have never touched a typewriting key, let alone a computer key.


White

So I'll take that as a no then. Of course your great creation - Morse - is a crossword fanatic and the names I think of Morse and his sidekick, they have crossword significance don't they?


Dexter

They do indeed. When I decided I would just write one book I thought I want somebody who's extraordinarily clever and I said who's the cleverest fellow I've ever met in my life and that was through the crossword world - Sir Jeremy Morse. A very well-known man, he used to be chairman of Lloyds Bank, he was on the International Monetary Fund, he's a fellow of All Souls, is brilliant at chess and crosswords and I thought I would give him a post as a chief inspector. And the same with Lewis - Mrs Lewis was one of the competitors.
