Barrington Pheloung (composer) has passed away

Recommended Posts



Barrington Pheloung, who composed the haunting theme for TV drama Inspector Morse, has died at the age of 65.

The Australian-born composer shared several interests with Colin Dexter's irascible detective, not least his love of opera and cryptic crosswords.

He became known for hiding clues and red herrings in the score for the TV show, occasionally revealing the killer's identity in morse code.

The hypnotic title song also included a motif based on the letters M.O.R.S.E.

Pheloung died at home in Australia, his agent confirmed to the BBC. No cause of death was given.
