After spending 18 months watching and re watching the Lewis series for my book I still love this series and many of the episodes are some of my favourites in the Morse Universe.

You don’t have to join Twitch to watch but if you do join (it’s free) it has only the minimal amount of signing up protocol to go through and this will allow you to chat to me and everybody else.

Not only can you enjoy watching the episode but you can chat (via text box) with other Lewis 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 Lewis 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 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 hope to see many of you there for a fun time at what has become known as the Sunday Club Lewis Night.

Author: Chris Sullivan

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. I was sorry to see that Thursday evening’s “Inspecting Lewis” discussion, on “Old School Ties”, was cancelled due to illness, and I hope you are well. It is therefore good to observe that tomorrow’s “Sunday Night Lewis Club” is continuing as usual, although regrettably, I will not be able to join you all to watch, “Wild Justice”. Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult for me to find the necessary time on a Sunday evening. Nevertheless, I aim to join you on Twitch for the live discussions on Tuesday and Thursday, if they are going ahead as normal.

    Regarding last week’s Lewis episode “Old, Unhappy, Far Off Things”, I have noticed two possible Morse references. They are perhaps rather tenuous, but just outside the hospital at the 42 to 43 minute mark on my DVD, Ruth Brooks mentions to Lewis, that “Eddie had warned her not to date, or go out with Judd Havelock”. Lewis asks, “who is Eddie”, and Ruth says that “Edward Florey was Judd’s room-mate at Lonsdale”. This is a possible connection to Inspector Morse and Endeavour, as Morse’s alma mater was the fictional Lonsdale College of Oxford University.

    My second Morse reference concerns the “cooking pot” phrase, said by Lewis in this episode, at about 19 minutes into my DVD, that you kindly explained the meaning of, to me Chris on Tuesday night. This is a bit of a long shot, or out of left field, I suppose you could say, but I wondered about this suggestion that I will detail. As you told me, missionaries on their travels to places such as Africa, were killed and possibly eaten out of the “cooking pot”, by cannibals. I believe there is also a theory that Captain Cook on his many adventures overseas, was killed by cannibals in the Pacific, perhaps on Hawaii. As we know, Captain Cook’s ship was called HMS Endeavour, and Morse memorably, finally told Lewis and Adele Cecil, his unknown Chrstian name, in the wonderful episode, “Death is Now My Neighbour”. He was named after Cook’s famous ship, because his father was a great fan of Britain’s great seafaring explorer and navigator of the eighteenth century. In addition Morse said, that his mother was a Quaker, and they are apparently known to sometimes give their chidren strange names, such as Hope or Patience.

    In relation to the discussions on Tuesday and Thursday, that was certainly a good name that Midland thought of for them, “Inspecting Lewis”. I wondered if, when we possibly come to start discussing the Endeavour episodes in the future on Twitch, whether these could be called, “A Critical Endeavour”. Furthermore, if we hopefully at some point discuss the original Morse episodes, they could be called, “Decoding Morse”. They are only my tentative proposals, and I am sure there are many who have possibly better ideas. I said “critical” for Endeavour, because after all we would be “endeavoring” to critically analyse it, and for Inspector Morse, I thought “decoding”, as it fits in with the idea of the old communication system of Morse code. Moreover, a young Morse worked in the signal corps, as alluded to, in the Endeavour episode, “Girl”.

    Finally, I agree with you Chris, in regards to the the lack of illustrious and highly esteemed, British charactor actors, throughout the Endeavour series. This did not happen in the Morse and Lewis series, most episodes had a number of these great thespians, and I believe this gave these two series, a certain gravitas, which is perhaps slightly missing in Endeavour without them. Does the high number of recurring main characters in Endeavour, there are many more of these, than in Morse or Lewis, mean, it is too expensive to hire some of the leading British character actors of the time?

    That is all for now. Thanks Chris for all your hard work on the Morse universe, and all the best.

    1. Hi James. Thank you for your concern. Your second reference is rather tenuous James but your first regarding Lonsdale is a fair one. I will note that for the second edition of my book. It is possible that the wages that pay for the main actors in the Endeavour restrict any chance of attracting more illustrious British actors.

      1. Thanks for the kind reply, Chris. I must admit that my Captain Cook reference was a long shot. I also should have added in my comments above, that at the most basic level, the “cooking pot” phrase, made me think of the word “cook”, which led me to then, conjure up the name of Britain’s famous sailor, Captain James Cook. However, like you have said about yourself, I am perhaps guilty of conjuring up too many Morse references and connections. My poor excuse for this, would be the current heatwave that is hitting the south-east of England, so maybe I need a lie down in a cool place! I’m only joking, of course. Hope you enjoy tonight’s Sunday Night Lewis Club, and I “endeavour” to join you for the “Inspecting Lewis” discussion, on Tuesday evening. That is all for now. Keep safe and well.

      2. I forgot to mention I liked your ideas for names regarding the Endeavour and Morse live streams. Remind me nearer the time when each live stream begins. Thanks.

  2. Hi Chris. Thanks for kindly telling me you liked those names I suggested for the live streams. I wonder now whether, “Inspector Morse Decoded”, has perhaps a better ring to it, or was my original choice the better one? Anyway, I am happy with, “A Critical Endeavour”, and I will try my best to remind you of these two possible names, nearer the time when each live stream begins. Thanks Chris, and I hope to see you on Tuesday evening. Goodbye for now.

  3. Thanks Chris. I agree with you, “Morse Decoded”, is the best option to choose. It has a better sound or ring to it, and there is no need for the extra word, “Inspector”.

  4. Hi Chris. Sorry for the short notice, but I am bitterly frustrated that I cannot join you for tonight’s “Inspecting Lewis” on “Wild Justice”. I have done some homework on this very good Lewis episode, and I have various questions and comments, I would have liked to have added to the debate, this evening. Alas, I can’t do that now, but if you don’t mind, when I have the time, I will write these comments on your website over the next few days. As you say, sometimes life gets in the way, and I hope you all have an enjoyable discussion this evening. That is all for now. Keep safe and well.

    1. Sorry to read you can’t make it tonight. Probably worth watching the discussion tonight on Twitch when you find the time. You may find some of your questions being answered.

  5. Thanks for replying so quickly yesterday, Chris. I am pleased you received my message, before your discussion on Twitch went live. That is a very good idea you mentioned, and I will “endeavour” to find the time over the next few days, to watch the recorded version of last night’s “Inspecting Lewis”. That is all for now. All the best.
