Let’s Jump In The Time Machine to 1992 and 2012: Two Magazine Articles About Morse and Lewis.

Hello everyone and welcome to a new post. I hope you are all well mentally as well as physically.

Recently, I have found a few magazines with articles about Morse and Lewis on Ebay. One is a TV guide called ‘People’ from 1992. I think this may have been included with the Sunday People newspaper. The second is the TV Guide, Radio Times, published in 2012.

So, let’s jump in our time machine and head back to our younger days.

First up is a rather short article with Colin Dexter talking about Morse. In September/October 1992 when this article was published, the Morse series had broadcast it’s sixth series with the seventh series due in January 1993.

The Radio Times article is from May 2012. The Morse series had ended 12 years earlier. The Endeavour series pilot had been broadcast at the beginning of the year and a further series was commissioned. The Lewis series at the time of the article had now reached it’s sixth series. The episode Soul of Genius was broadcast on the 16th May.

I hoped you enjoyed the articles. I bought some more so they will be coming soon. 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. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. 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. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.
