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 hope to see many of you there for a fun time at what has become known as the Sunday Night Morse Club.
Hi Chris. As promised, after watching the brilliant and iconic Morse episode, “Dead on Time”, with you all, last Sunday week, I have a question for you please, if you don’t mind. To briefly summarise, the inquest into Henry Fallon’s death appeared straighforward, and the conclusive verdict was suicide. However, fairly soon after, Henry’s Doctor reported a “bombshell” to the police. In his medical opinion, through analysis collated over many months, Mr. Fallon could not have killed himself, such was the state of his degenerative illness. In essence, Henry’s debilitating condition had continued to deteriorate over time, and therefore, he did not have the strength or capability to pull the trigger, and commit suicide, himself. Interestingly, Dr. Marriot had not attended the inquest, he was supposed to have been on holiday. My question was, why did Dr. Marriot, conveniently, make himself unavailable for the inquest?
I asked that question at the very end of the live twitch stream, and I’m sorry it was a bit too late for you to reply, Chris. My mistake, I should have been quicker typing it. Nevertheless, I now believe, I have the answer. Please correct me if I am wrong. If Dr. Marriot had attended the inquest, and if he had told the authorities, it could not be suicide, given that the Doctor was a keen supporter of some kind of euthanasia pressure group, it may have led to questions by the police, enquiring whether he had helped or assisted Henry Fallon to kill himself. As we know, in fact, Dr. Marriot was actually in collusion with Mr. Fallon’s wife, Susan. She had killed her husband, with his blessing, but the events of that day and the timing of the murder/assisted suicide, were all organised intricately, to frame the son-in-law, Peter Rhodes, for murder. As a consequence, a further interconnecting reason why the Doctor deliberately missed the inquest, would be, if his diagnosis of Mr. Fallon’s illness was well known, by confidently announcing his medical analysis at the inquest, surely the wife would have also been very aware of this prognosis, before her husband’s death. He was thus, protecting Susan, from possibly being suspected early on, for helping to end her husband’s life. A final reason why the Doctor was purposely absent at the inquest, was I assume, due to the holiday he had allegedly taken, which allowed him to have an alibi for the time of the murder/assisted suicide of Henry Fallon.
I should have said Dr. Marriot was in collusion not just with Mr Fallon’s wife, Susan, but Henry himself, as well. The three of them colluded together to give some meaning to Henry’s death, by framing Peter Rhodes for the murder. Henry and Susan blamed Peter for the death of their daughter and grandson, while Dr. Marriot wanted Peter out of the way and in jail, because Peter had been in an affair, with the Doctor’s wife.
Just to make myself clear, I forgot the word “planned” in my comment, above, i.e. “The three of them colluded together to give some meaning to Henry’s “planned” death/assisted suicide, by framing Peter Rhodes for murder.
I also mentioned on Twitch that evening, there is a very minor plot hole, related to what I have just been discussing, which thankfully doesn’t affect the high quality of this episode. Once Morse and Lewis established the truth, that Peter Rhodes had been framed, and as soon as they began to question whether Dr. Marriot had really been on holiday, or whether he’d only, “just”, concluded Mr. Fallon could not use a gun on himself, after his death. Should the police have thought, wouldn’t Susan have known about Dr. Marriot’s diagnosis of her husband? Susan of course, did not tell the inquest, her husband didn’t have the strength to pull the trigger. Therefore, should suspicion have been drawn to her earlier. I realise when it comes to Morse, love is blind, and he would have found it difficult to accept the depressing realities, regarding Susan, eventually uncovered by Lewis. Particularly, as Morse had once been engaged to Susan, and she was perhaps, the true, but sadly lost, love of his life. Finally, should the police have also considered, the subject of euthanasia could have been discussed between Dr. Marriot and the Fallons, Henry and Susan. As after all, the Doctor was a supporter of some form of euthansia pressure group. I know, I’m being rather harsh on this episode, but these were the questions that went through my mind, when I watched this episode again. To be honest, I still believe it is an excellent episode, which I would mark 9 out of 10.
