I discovered this series yesterday on the Belgian (flemish) TV. In the telefilm "Well Schooled In Murder", Lynley's car appears a lot. It's a very nice royal blue Jensen Interceptor, registered "OCL 888 M". I don't have a snapshot, unfortunately. I could not assess the year the car was built, but with the registration number, this should be feasible for someone accessing the registrations UK database.

Indeed. Lynley's usual car seems to be the Bristol recorded on this site (/vehicle_32531-Bristol-410-1968.html).
Don't know why he is using the blue Jensen in this "episode". As it's one of the early ones ('Well Schooled in Murder' is the first "episode" following the pilot movie), I guess the Jensen was his first usual car till he got/drove the Bristol later on.
By the way, it was the first time ever I watched one telefilm about Lynley's investigations which were to me totally unknown so far.

Update :
- OCL 888M - 1973 Jensen Interceptor MkIII, chassis 13678886, engine 35C11598 (http://www.motorbase.com/auctionlot/by-id/777109116/)
- From Wikipedia (about Jensen Interceptors): Inspector Lynley (Nathaniel Parker) drives one in the earlier seasons of "The Inspector Lynley Mysteries". He drives a Bristol in the later seasons.

Is this still 'alive' then? According to the DVLA (GOV.UK), they've heard nothing of it since 2002. Of course it could be 'shrink wrapped' somewhere, but it's just a Jensen after all, not a 250 GTO. Don't get me wrong, I love the Interceptor. It just doesn't seem to me to be the type of car that ends up in one of those airtight glass boxes. Wonder where it is?
