Hello my fellow Morsonians, Endeavourists and Lewisians and welcome to a new post. This post is about all the missing scenes and edited scenes in the USA version. There are 12 scenes that were shown in the original British version but were either excised or edited when shown in the USA.
I understand why the American company does this so the episode fits into the confines of their time-slot and of course one must get plenty of advertisements in there as well. But it is unfair to the American viewers as they miss scenes which can help understand the motives and the characters in the episode that much better.
I have created a video of all twelve scenes. If the scene was missing from the US version I have set it between the before after scenes to give the missing scene context. Extended scenes are shown in their entirety.
These videos below are the first of what will probably be 12 videos in total. Videos will highlight an episode from the fifth series/season.
A huge thank you to my American friend Kathleen Avalone who identified all the scenes.
I hope you enjoy the video.
