We have arrived at one of the defining episodes in the Morse Universe; Dead on Time. This is the episode where we finally meet the woman, Susan (Wendy in the Dexter novel) who created in many ways the Morse character. She is the woman who was on such a high pedestal that no other women could reach such heights or be placed that high by Morse, (Though Adele came close).
Susan is played by the lovely and wonderful Joanna David who is Laurence Fox’s aunt.
Not only can you enjoy watching the episode but you can chat (via text box) with other Morse fans. Some people who have watched the episodes on the live stream have said that they have not only learned more about the episodes but come to appreciate episodes they had previously disliked.
Please join me and many others to watch this great episode on the social media platform, (one of the biggest in the world) TWITCH and watch the episode on a live stream. Twitch is FREE to join and FREE to watch.
For those not in the know in regard to Twitch, when I write ‘watch and chat’ the chat is via a text window so there is no actual talking over the episode.
To ‘chat’ (this means to type in the chat window that runs alongside the video) you need to register but that is all rather simple. It’s only a matter of choosing a screen name and entering your email address.
So, over the next weeks I am hoping to live stream all 33 of the Morse episodes on Twitch. Twitch is one of the biggest social media sites in the world which allows people to live stream their various activities.
I am hoping that many of you will be able to join me on Sunday 18th August at 8pm BST. That is around Midday Pacific Time and around 3pm Eastern Daylight Time.
I would like to say a huge thank you to those who have become Patrons of the site and also a huge thank you to those who have made donations. What do I mean by Patrons?
What is Patreon? Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. It’s a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, with ways for artists to build relationships with their subscribers, or “patrons”.
With Patreon you set up how much you wish to pay monthly. There are three tiers, $5, $10 and $15. It’s like paying for a magazine subscription.
Patreon primarily uses Paypal which is easy to join and a safe way to send money. https://www.paypal.com/uk/home

I have started my own Facebook page. It is primarily an extension of this website. I decided to start the Facebook page as there has been times when I have an update to a review post or some interesting news or information but it was all to small to make into a full blown post here on my website. So, come and join and keep up-to-date with all that happens in the Morse universe.

I hope to see many of you there for a fun time at what has become known as the Sunday Club Morse Night.
Hello Chris, I was wondering if you are able to make your comments accessible after the real time of watching the movie and commenting. I am not able to watch the movie when you do. but having already watched all of Morse a couple of times I would still be interested in your and other people’s comments.
Hi Annette. I’m not sure in regard to copying the comments. I will look into it and see what I can find out.
I, too, would like to see your comments. A question, though, do you know why the producers/writers of Morse decided to use the name Susan, instead of Wendy which, as you say Chris, is in the Dexter novels? I don’t see a reason for it.
Chris, I just read your original review of Dead on Time and in it you mention that Susan actually failed her doctorate and worked in the Randolph hotel bar. Is this how Colin Dexter wrote it in The Last Enemy?
I have just finished watching this episode on TV and it always drains me emotionally… I was never a big fan but this story really lays the lead charecter out bare.. So very well written and the cast giving a glorious performance. Each time I watch it more things become clearer… Without a doubt my very favourite episode of the series. Found this site by browsing and very happy with it indeed. Edward
Hello Edward. I’m so glad you are enjoying the website. After one watches the episode Dead on Time it is easy to understand why it is in most Morse fan’s top ten favourite episodes.
Looking forward to enjoying reading more posts.
