Morse Universe: Weekly News Round-Up.


Hello and welcome to antepenultimate weekly news round-up before Christmas day.

Before I start I thought I should let you know that I wrote to ITV regarding a release date for the fourth Endeavour series. They said they can only comment on release dates up to ten days ahead in the schedules. I did notice on Abigail Thaw’s Twitter account on the 5th December she mentioned that they are still doing some ADR work. (Automated dialogue replacement (ADR) is the process of re-recording dialogue by the original actor after the filming process to improve audio quality or reflect dialogue changes (also known as “looping” or a “looping session”). So for the moment we will have have to continue to wait with bated breath.

So let’s jingle that Twitter and other social media bells and see what song they sing. Wow that was florid.

The Laurence Fox Book of Being Working Class. Harrovian and member of the Fox dynasty Laurence decided this year he was, in actual fact, working class. No doubt this book holds his secrets. Evidently this is simply achieved by taking a low-paid job, as Fox did on an independent film. In that case, Laurence, an awful lot of us are working class. We are right there with you, comrade.

Well folks that is all for this week. Next week I hope to post the next in the series of music, art and literary references in the Morse episode, ‘Deceived by Flight. I am also working on the information about how each person died and by which method in the Lewis series. I have already done this for Morse and this can be found by clicking here. Until then take care.
