One In the west of the country, three in the east?
You're thinking along the right lines; but, not quite -- two in the east, two elsewhere, and sea-coasts are involved.
Vi Vishawski is set in Chicago and is the odd one out as it is not on the sea
Correct ! Your turn to get on the trail of the bad guys. (Randall, Scudder, and Decker, in the coastal cities of Boston, New York, and greater Los Angeles, respectively.)
This place is also called the bird and baby by a particular group of locals (amongst other names) - what is its proper name and its claim to fame?
The "Eagle and Child" pub in St. Giles's Street, Oxford (its sign depicts an eagle carrying off a -- well -- baby). It was, a few generations ago, the favourite getting-together-place of the group of Oxford academics and mutual friends -- with above all else, literary and religious interests -- who included in their number J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, and called themselves the Inklings.
Open floor if correct.
What other TV related claim to fame does The Eagle & Child have ?
Was it the local of the bloke who wrote Morse?
Correct answer Mr Calthrop! (it is also allegedly called the Falcon and Feotus by the students). You can imagine the scene "I've got this wonderful idea for a story about dwarf-like creatures with hairy feet..." - "you've been drinking too much of that cheap beer again Tolkien!"
Theageofthetra is also correct with the answer about it being a favourite haunt of Colin Dexter
I think MOST pubs in Oxford were haunts of Colin Dextrer / Morse ! This wasn't the answer I was looking for - though it is Morse related.
Is it the pub which features in the most episodes of Morse?
