Inspector Morse is a television series that began airing on ITV in the UK in 1987. The complete series aired in the US on PBS, and the series was partly co-produced by WGBH. It is based on a series of 13 detective novels written by Colin Dexter that began with the publication of Last Bus to Woodstock in 1975. At the time the TV series premiered, the seventh novel had just been published, so the canon continued to evolve on two separate tracks.
The series in both forms tells the story of Oxford-based Inspector Morse, whose first name is a closely-guarded secret, and his sidekick, Detective Sergent Lewis. A spin-off television series (Lewis) focused on the now Detective Inspector Lewis also has a small fandom.
There are gen stories in the fandom but there is long-running interest in the slash pairing of Morse/Lewis. A Yahoo! mailing list for fans of Morse/Lewis also has a Livejournal community, Morse_Lewis which was set up in 2005 to supplement the mailing list and has a few stories posted there.
