Kevin Whately


I have long considered Inspector Morse to be one of the best contemporary detective series. Indeed I have the entire DVD box set; and the more recent series, Lewis, continued the tradition.

Kevin Whately's  great-great-great-great-grandfather was a director of the Bank of England.


His great-great-grandfather happened to be none other than the Most Rev and Rt Hon Dr Richard Whately, DD, Lord Archbishop of Dublin, Primate of Ireland and Metropolitan, 1831-63.

His Grace is seen wearing the Chancellor's badge of the Order of St Patrick.
