TV MONITOR: A WEEKLY LOOK AT WHO’S BUYING WHAT AND WHEN

Set among the dreaming spires of Oxford, Inspector Morse is back wending his weary way through another murder mystery with a spot of romance.

Set among the dreaming spires of Oxford, Inspector Morse is back

wending his weary way through another murder mystery with a spot of

romance.



Death is now my Neighbour followed the murder of a young woman. A

complicated trail of clues leads to an Oxford College where a bitter

battle is taking place over the mastership.



This one-off special was guaranteed to pull in a good quality ABC1

female-biased audience.



Advertisers in the first slot were: Nissan Almera, EMI, Safeway, Persil

Liquid, Andrex and One-2-One.



The Nissan Almera ad found its natural slot, given that it is a take-off

of the Sweeney, which starred John Thaw as Regan, who was possibly even

more grumpy than Inspector Morse. With Almera targeting slots close to

action themes, this seemed a good choice, even if the action in Morse is

at a more stately pace.



Unilever’s Persil Liquid was keen to build coverage among light

viewers.



Andrex, meanwhile, wanted to maximise the potential of a popular

programme, guaranteeing high ratings among key buyers in ABC1 homes.
