Colin Dexter’s appearances in the Lewis series.

Having previously created a video on the appearances of the author Colin Dexter in the Inspector Morse series it was about time I did a video on Mr Dexter’s appearances in the wonderful Lewis series, all nine series. There are a few episodes where I couldn’t find Colin but of course there was a few Morse episodes that he also did not appear in. However, I may have missed him in those episodes where I couldn’t find him. So, if you should find Colin in those particular Lewis episodes let me know via the comment section.

Enjoy and take care.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. A busy time ahead made even busier by my writing a book on the TV series, Lewis.

  1. Fantastic¡ You know that because your amazing job, I’ve found myself looking for Mr. Dexter’s appearances at Endeavour and it has become such a game to play and enjoyed¡¡¡¡ Thanks so much

    1. Hi Maria. I’m glad you enjoyed my blog video. Of course , in the next few months I will be creating a video of Colin Dexter’s appearances in Endeavour. Thanks for your kind comment.

    1. Hi!. Well that’s interesting. Interesting you know Colin Dexter and interesting he says he appeared in all episodes of the last series. I must review the episodes and see if I can find him. Of course he may have been left on the cutting room floor. Thanks for commenting and I hope you enjoyed my video.

  2. I enjoy your blogs and videos so much! I always try to spot Mr. Dexter but I get involved in the shows and forget to look for him. Thank you for all you do and keep up the good work!

  3. I just finished binge watching Inspector Morse and am currently doing the same with Lewis. Unfortunately, the “where’s Waldo” searching for Colin Dexter seems to be interfering with my ability to get all of the facts in the plot. I can only fully concentrate once I have spotted him…but what fun! I only found this site because I didn’t spot him in Counter Culture Blues and now I know why. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can get back to the DVDs knowing I can relax during the next episode.

    1. Hi and welcome to my blog. The search for Colin Dexter gives watching the series an added dimension doesn’t it. Thank you for you’re lovely comment and I hope you find other things of interest on my blog.

  4. Chris, I believe I have three more sightings for you.
    4-1 Dead of Winter at about 04:45 there is a couple standing outside of the Eurobar. Can be seen over Lewis’s shoulder as he walks away.
    5-4 Gift of Promise at about 12:00, seen in background walking past doorway.
    8-3 Beyond Good and Evil at about 38:00 seated on bench outside pub(?) as Hathaway walks in.
    The first two are iffy, in the distance, very short screen time. It’s definetly him in 8-3.
    Hope this helps.

  5. Hi Chris, After having watched all the episodes of Lewis so many times ever since they were first broadcast and trying to spot Colin Dexter I made a list for myself. We watched ‘Life born of fire’ yesterday evening and came across a second sighting which I could not find in your videos. Right at the end just after Lewis and Hathaway walk away along the Radcliffe Camera I think it’s Colin walking past in the same direction in a toga. I hope this is helpful.

  6. Hi Chris I think I’ve found another double appearance. We were watching Allegory of love and at 6.13 I think that Colin exits the Randolph (on right) when Hayden enters.

  7. What a great job you have done finding all the scenes, thanks I really enjoyed watching your video. Now I just want to see all Lewis episodes again 😉
