Last Tuesday, 3rd September, I was feeling rather stressed and overwhelmed: it was my first day at Edinburgh University. I returned home and started to try and dig my way through all the information I had received from the university and via email that day. By about 9pm I was mentally and physically exhausted and decided that what I had done was enough for one day and that now I needed to relax.
I made my favourite comfort food, mac and cheese with garlic bread and sat done to watch one of my all time favourite episodes in the Morse Universe, ‘And the Moonbeams Kiss The Sea’ from the Lewis series.
After having watched the episode and feeling much better I began to think about how some episodes in the Morse Universe are like comfort food; not only do they make you feel better mentally but make you feel good to be alive. They help one face the world and appreciate one’s place in it. If you watch one before you retire to bed they help you to sleep more soundly and happily.
Though some of the episodes may make us a little sad and maybe even cry we need that cathartic element to allow us to expel that sadness and those tears from our bodies and so relieve us of our own pain.
So, here is my top ten ‘comfort’ episodes from the Morse Universe but in no particular order.
- And The Moonbeams Kiss the Sea (Lewis)
- Dead on Time (Morse)
- Second Time Around (Morse)
- First Bus to Woodstock (Pilot episode of Endeavour)
- Life Born of Fire (Lewis)
- Home (Endeavour)
- Masonic Mysteries (Morse)
- Dark Matter (Lewis)
- The Way Through The Woods (Morse)
- Death is Now my Neighbour (Morse)
So, that is my top ten ‘comfort’ episodes. What is yours? Put your top ten here on the website in the comments section or comment on my Facebook page. Click HERE to visit my FB page.

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 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
