The BBC Called And I Have Answered.

Hello everyone, I hope you are well.

Yesterday I received an email from the BBC. It was from a Phil Harrison who has a two hour show on Saturdays on BBC Radio Kent between midday and 2pm.

Phil has since the start of the year been running a TV Detectives World Cup. Each week he has pitted one show against another with the winner moving through to the next stage. The final of this ‘World Cup’ is tomorrow, 21st September between Inspector Morse and Line of Duty.

Phil phoned this morning and asked me put together a statement as to why Inspector Morse deserves to win the World Cup and all to be done in a minute. Phil gave me some time to think it over and called me back later.

He called me back and he asked me a few questions and I rattled off my one minute statement as to why Inspector Morse deserves to win. He of course was recording what I said and will edit and transmit it tomorrow during the show.

So, if you want to be part of the show either to vote for Inspector Morse or to phone in with your memories of the show then head over to BBC Radio Kent tomorrow at midday. Phil said the actual segment in relation to the TV Detective World Cup will start at 12:30pm and the winner be announced at around 1:40pm.

So, tomorrow you can tune into Radio Kent and hear me make a fool of myself and enjoy the show; or both.

BBC Radio Kent can be found here;

I hope some of you will manage to listen in not necessarily for me but to support the Inspector Morse show. If not I will record the show and post it here tomorrow.

Take care everyone.

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

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. 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. A busy time ahead made even busier by my writing a book on the TV series, Lewis.

  1. Hi Chris, how exciting! I’ll definitely give it a listen tomorrow. A difficult comparison given both series are of their times but I’m sure you will have promoted Inspector Morse with great eloquence and enthusiasm! Looking forward to it. Sarah

    1. It was a landslide 🙂 I will be posting the elements of the radio show that dealt with the ‘World Cup of Detectives’ sometime shortly.

  2. Great commentary on why Morse is the #1 detective, Chris. Just hearing the opening theme makes me want to watch them yet again from the beginning to end. Sad to say I don’t think there will ever be a show like that again. Violence rules TV these days.
