And last but not least please think about buying my book on the Lewis TV series. It is available in paperback and a Kindle version on Amazon..
VERY IMPORTANT: For all those outside the UK you should be aware that on Sunday the UK BST will end and we will be on GMT. This means that the clocks went back one hour. I will adjust the times on Sunday.

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 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 hope to see many of you there for a fun time at what has become known as the Sunday Night Morse Club.
Chris, Sundays are hard for me to join the chat as it is usually family dinner day with my son and his family. I am disappointed that I can’t take part for a lot of the Sundays as I enjoy it (especially Morse streams and the Endeavour ones to come) so much. I guess Sundays are not hard for most people as you seem to have quite a few “chatters” joining. 😞
Sorry Kathleen. The day of Sunday and the time of 8pm was chosen as it did appear to be the most condusive to achieving the largest number of people.
I understand. Will participate when I can.
Forgot to add my viewing time is 3 p.m.
Unfortuantely, I will not be able to join you all tonight, to watch this excellent Morse episode. Sorry about that Chris. I always try my best to find the time on a Sunday evening, but alas, sometimes it is not possible. “Second Time Around”, is one of my favourite Morse episodes. I know this is just a bit of fun, but it is in my personal top 10, at number 4, beaten only by “Death is Now My Neighbour”, “Dead on Time”, and “Masonic Mysteries”. Hence, I’m disappointed to miss tonight’s live stream, but hopefully, I will be free to watch next Sunday’s episode.
Finally, I had a question about last week’s great episode, “Dead on Time”, which I will post on your website this week. Thanks Chris, and that is all for now.
Hi James, I, too, have difficulty making the 3 p.m. viewing (my time) on a Sunday as that is usually a family dinner day. Sometimes I can join in on the days that my family or I can’t make it. I’m disappointed as well because Morse is my favorite and, like you, this is one of those favorite episodes. I agree with your choices but I must add Way Through the Woods and Daughters of Cain to my list. But to be honest I love ALL of Morse with the exception of The Wench is Dead. I am looking forward to watching the Morse documentary as that is on a weekday.
Hi Kathleen. It appears we are both “metaphorically” in the same boat, when it comes to the Sunday Night Morse Club. Regrettably, I have difficulty finding time for these live streams on a Sunday evening, and it appears you do as well. In your case, as I believe you live in Florida, it is of course during the afternoon, rather than the evening.
I certainly agree with you regarding “The Way Through the Woods”, that is another great Morse episode. I place it at number 7, amongst my favourite Morse episodes. I also very much like your other suggestion, “The Daughters of Cain”, and that sits not too far outside my personal top 10. Below, just for a bit of fun, are my top 10 Morse episodes, including six episodes which didn’t quite make it, but they are very good, all the same. It goes without saying, it’s only my humble opinion, and sometimes I change my mind!!
1) Death is Now My Neighbour
2) Dead on Time
3) Masonic Mysteries
4) Second Time Around
5) The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn
6) Driven to Distraction
7) The Way Through the Woods
8) Promised Land
9) Deceived by Flight
10) The Wolvercote Tongue
11) Twilight of the Gods
12) Who Killed Harry Field?
13) Deadly Slumber
14) The Death of the Self
15) The Dead of Jericho
16) The Daughters of Cain
James, Yes, my son and his family usually come for Sunday afternoon dinner and we play Trivial Pursuit. Ugh I wish my old mind wasn’t so clouded :). But I did win the last game! I don’t want to miss these times because they may be moving out of the area.
I like all your choices. As I said before I love all the Morse episodes for one reason or another. I’ve watched them numerous times and still find something I missed. Personally I would put Deadly Slumber ahead of Promised Land only because it shows a more sentimental Morse. I love his line, and I paraphrase–A monster? Or was he made monstrous and for what, money?? Out of all Morse universe spin-offs- Lewis, Endeavour- our original Morse shows the most empathy, sympathy and caring behind his gruff exterior. I guess that’s why I love his character. That and his unique way he lives his life, his “old fashioned ways” and, yes, even his arrogance. Because, I believe, arrogance can come with extraordinary intelligence, intentional or not. He’s a marshmallow inside!
Thanks for the reply Kathleen. I certainly agree with you, “Deadly Slumber” is another superb Morse episode. Brian Cox played a brilliant part, as one of the guest stars, creating a villian who one understandably feels sympathy for, given the plight of his comatose daughter. Indeed, as you say, Morse himself, expertly portrayed as always by John Thaw, showed his compassion for Brian Cox’s character, Michael Steppings. Despite having not had children, Morse empathised with Mr. Steppings, and if I have remembered correctly, he bought roses for the poor, severely brain damaged girl, which stunned and delighted Steppings, as nobody had done that before.
Anyway, I’m happy at the moment with my own selection of favourite Morse episodes, but you have given me food for thought, Kathleen. Finally, the fact we have both, unfortunately, missed a few Sunday live twitch streams, which is very frustrating, hopefully, we make up for, by adding some value or insight to Chris’s excellent website!!!
Sorry about the silly typing error. I spelt “Unfortunately”, with the second “n” in the wrong place. It should have come before the “a”, not after, but I accidentally made a small mistake.
