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.

  1. Now you can take good care of yourself. I hope your lit coursework is a pleasant change for you.

    1. Thank you Jan. I love English Literature so i am thoroughly enjoying the university course.

  2. Thanks Chris I’m writing from distant Australia, in this year of the plague 2020, writing this review in the afterglow of rewatching Rambling Boy episode on DVD.
    I think that the Rambling Boy episode must be one of the high points of the entire Lewis project, on so many levels – reflecting Lewis’ emotional health recovering, the next step of Lewis and the delightful Hobson, warmth of Innocent, reflections on the lifelong pain of losing a baby, the life-changing benefits of reaching out for and accepting help – all this and 2 murders and 2 attempted murders.
    Rambling Boy has no particular literary allusions, but I think the number of character and emotional arcs in the episode more than makes up for it. Last 10 minutes or so is powerpacked (the academic sitting on the bench with her bag of welcome and pregnancy gifts, the wonderful scene in the pub with Lewis Hobson innocent and Hathaway, DC Gray giving life lessons to the young ones, and the closing walk together) 4 or 5 times.
    The screenplay was by Lucy Gannon, her one and only Lewis episode. She and the storyline are not from the traditional Inspector Morse canon, but the emotional and story arcs are enormously attractive. like the wonderful opera experience of shared song. So I believe that the emotional arcs cover more than adequately.
    A pat on the back to colour grading on Lewis esp in series 3 on (I guess due to the influence of the Masterpiece American coproducers?). The warm colour temperature, giving every scene the golden light that we photographers love to capture, improallves the emotional temperature of the entire series. The older Inspector Morse episodes with the daylight/colder/more natural? colour temperature) play as cooler/grimmer.
    I do think that the later series of Lewis, when the producers and the concept and the performers were in the groove like Miles, are the most satisfying from my perspective.
