Double Sighting of Colin Dexter in the Lewis Episode, ‘Allegory of Love’.

Just a short post to mention a double appearance of Colin Dexter in a Lewis episode. While watching the Lewis episode ‘Allegory of Love’ (Series 3, Episode 1) last night I was surprised by not only Mr Dexter appearing twice in the episode but that I hadn’t noticed this on a previous viewing.

Colin’s first appearance in the episode coming out of the Randolph at 6 minutes and 10 seconds.


Colin’s second appearance in the episode at 20 minutes and 24 seconds.

Now, I am wondering if Mr Dexter has made other multiple appearances in any of the Morse, Lewis and Endeavour series. Has anyone else noticed multiple appearances of Mr Dexter?

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. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. 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. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.

  1. As I’ve said before, I always mean to look for Mr. Dexter, but I always forget! Thank you for “finding” him for me.

  2. Thanks for confirming it. I originally discounted the second one on the ground that I had already spotted him once!
