Hello everyone and welcome to a new post. In the past I have created posts showing the missing scenes from series five and six of the Endeavour series. You can find these posts by clicking HERE and go to section 15 on the page.
I have now found out, thanks to Lewis fans on my live streams, that PBS also edited scenes from the Lewis series. A huge thank you to Nate who took the time to compare the PBS aired episode and the original UK broadcast. Unbelievably, there are some important scenes that have been excised by the editor for PBS who is akin to a heavy handed butcher.
Of course it is possible that not all regions had the following scenes deleted. To put the missing scenes into context I will include parts of the scenes that came before and after. Let me know thoughts on this post in the comments section. The running times I have mentioned below are those for the UK broadcast and DVD. So, for US viewers they will be approximate.
First up we have a scene with the brother in law of Reg Chapman (the first victim), following him out of the Greyhound Track. This is between 3m:12s and 3m:40secs.
Next missing scene starts at 17m:23s and ends at 20m:25s. Nell and Philip are showing tourists around parts of Oxford.
Next scene starts at 21m:33s and ends at 23m:30s minutes. All mention of Susan Chapman’s brother is excised from the scene.
Again this missing scene excises all mention of Jeffries, the brother of Susan Chapman. Starts at 27m:45s and ends at 29m:40s.
Next we have a truncated scene with Hathaway talking to Philip Horton. Starts at 40m:20s ends at 41m:52s.
Now we have a scene with Hathaway and Lewis talking about the case in their office. Starts at 1h:1m:45s, ends at 1h:3m:50s.
We have another scene with Susan Chapman’s brother, Jeffries and a scene with Sandra Walters and the American, Quentin Jackson. Starts at 1h:6m:50s and ends at 1h:8m:40s.
Scenes at the betting shop and in the police station. Starts at 1h:6m:50s and ends at 1h:8m:40m.
Next scene is a truncated one. It’s when Hathaway and Lewis visit the student house and eventually find the gun in Philip’s room. Starts at 1h:10m:15s and ends at 1h:11m:10s.
A missing scene between Lewis and Innocent.
And the last deleted scene is with the students in a pub. It’s split between a scene with Lewis and Hathaway in the police station. Starts at 1h:14m:30s and ends at 1h:16m:5s.
I hope you found this of interest. Please take the time to read to the end of this post.

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
