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 your 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.
Are you sitting comfortably because there are quite a lot of deleted scenes. Go and grab a coffee and a snack and I will start when you are ready………………………………………………………………….You’re back? Good. Here we go.
First up starts at eight minutes and 44 seconds and ends at nine minutes and 35 seconds. Lewis and Hathaway go to a school to talk to Oswald Cooper. Nate added a note for the deleted scene. When Simon Ashton, who is talking to the students, says “we have heard of the 21st century” Nate writes, “[visual difference on this line and the next. Full version: headshot of lecturer. PBS version: long shot, showing screen and lecturer on the right side.].” The deleted scene starts when Simon Ashton says, “We could pass our lives at Oxford without wanting any other idea.” It ends when Simon Ashton says, “The truth is, I’m not actually here to defend the catering.”
The second scene starts at twelve minutes 35 seconds and ends at 13 minutes 35 seconds. We are still at the school. The deleted scene starts when Hathaway says, “I don’t think he meant any offence.” and ends when Lewis says, “It’s my life – my life, not some blooming pub quiz.”
The third deleted scene starts at 13 minutes and ends at 15 minutes forty seconds. Sue talks to Oswald Cooper. The deleted scene starts when Sue walks into the room where Oswald is standing. It ends when Lewis says, “Fine.” in reply to Innocent when she says, “How would you like it if she nabbed one of your precious murders?”
The fourth scene starts at 17 minutes and 38 seconds and ends at 18 minutes and 14 seconds. A very short deleted scene. The deleted part is where Lewis says, “No sign of a break-in.” and Hathaway says, “Through here? Yes, sir.”
The fifth scene starts at 22 minutes and 40 seconds and ends at 22 minutes and 55 seconds. A very short deletion. The deleted part is when Hathaway says, “Number one.”

The ninth scene starts at 57 minutes and 35 seconds and ends at 58 minutes 55 seconds. The deleted scene starts when Hathaway says, “His car was here 17 times, according to the website.” and ends when Lewis says, “Come on – time we broke the news to Beatrice.” The scene is set in a field with Lewis and Hathaway discussing the case.
The tenth scene starts at one hour, three minutes and 30 seconds and ends at one hour and four minutes and 15 seconds. The deleted scene starts when Belinda Ashton says to Simon, “We’ll always be there for each other, won’t we?” and ends when Belinda phones someone. This is a short scene between Simon and Belinda Ashton.
The eleventh scene starts at one hour and eight minutes and 35 seconds and ends at one hour and ten minutes and five seconds. The deleted scene starts in Innocent’s office and Innocent says “Cooper, Sporetti – what’s the link?” and ends when Lewis says, “I’m afraid that particular horse has bolted.” The deleted scene is between Innocent and Lewis in her office.
The twelfth scene starts at one hour and 13 minutes and ends at one hour, 14 minutes and 44 seconds. The deleted scene is set in the basement of Cooper’s second house. The deleted scene starts when Hathaway says, “Given what happened to poor old Sporetti senior.” and ends when Hathaway says, “Then why did he turn on his friends?”
The thirteenth scene starts at one hour and 15 minutes and 5 seconds and ends at one hour and sixteen minutes and five seconds. The deleted scene starts when Jessamine Matthews says to Lewis, “What’s this?” as he walks into her house. It ends when Lewis says to Matthews, “Perhaps we could go down to the station, if it’s more convenient.” It’s a short scene.
The fourteenth scene starts at one hour, 16 minutes and five seconds and ends at one hour, sixteen minutes and 45 seconds. The deleted scene is another short and starts with Hathaway on the phone saying, “Mr Ashton, this is Sergeant Hathaway again, please call me back.” and ends when Hathaway, still on the phone, says, “at your earliest convenience – thank you.”
The fifteenth and final deleted scene is set in the police station between Matthews and Lewis. It starts at one hour, 16 minutes and 55 seconds and ends at one hour and 17 minutes and 30 seconds. The deleted scene starts when Lewis says, “But he was useful? Oh, yes, and very discreet.” and ends when Matthews says, Incorrigible.”

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
