"A STATUE of Inspector Morse author Colin Dexter is likely to be situated in
North Oxford and will feature a crossword at the base.

Dr Antony Richards, chairman of the Inspector Morse Society, which
celebrates the work of the author who died in March, is proposing the
permanent tribute.

Mr Dexter, who died aged 86, wrote 13 Morse novels and millions of viewers
tuned into TV episodes of Inspector Morse, its sequel Lewis and prequel
Endeavour.

Kennington-based sculptor Alex Wenham has volunteered to create the statue
and now Dr Richards has discussed plans for the tribute with city council
leader Bob Price.

The statue is expected to cost £25,000 and Dr Richards is hoping Mr Dexter's
publishers Macmillan and ITV will make significant financial contributions."



I like the suggestion in one of the comments to have a joint Colin Dexter /
Morse statue.
