Starring Colin Baker

Exactly 35 years after a certain grumpy supersleuth with an eye for the ladies and a thirst for real ale made his first appearance in Colin Dexter’s novel Last Bus to Woodstock, he’s back...

Inspector Morse takes to the stage in Autumn 2010 in an all-new murder mystery, House of Ghosts.

By special arrangement with Colin Dexter and starring Colin Baker (Dr Who) as Morse, Alma Cullen – the writer behind four of the hugely successful ITV episodes and Director Robin Herford (Woman in Black) – brings the inscrutable detective to audiences across the UK in what promises to be one of the theatrical events of the year.

Cast includes: Colin Baker, David Acton, Andrew Bone, Paul Clarkson, Lynette Edwards, Gregory Finnegan, John Fleming, Caroline Harding, Christopher Heyward, Rachel Logan, Judith Rae, Gay Soper and Glynn Sweet.
