Yay Jammes Herriot! I do love those books. I devoured all of them when I was about 12 and have reread them regularly. Sad nad funny and really it;s a lost wya of life.

And I should reread some Coiln Dexter at some point. I get the plots all confused...was The Wench Is Dead the one with the historical murder of a woman in a canal? And the TV adaptation was so wrong as there no Lewis?

I was about that age too, IMS, when I first read them. They are a jolly good mix of emotions, as you say.

You are correct re: The Wench Is Dead, that is the plot.

I never saw that particular TV adaptation, one of the few I haven't seen. But yes, they could get away without Lewis being in it, as Morse is in hospital for most of the book, and one of the other patient's daughters who works at the library helps Morse with some research. So they could combine what she and Lewis did. Lewis was in the book.

Also one of the better biography type books James Herriots. AT least IMHO ;-)

And yay I remmebered the plot! My memory is etter than I thought.

The TV adaptation had a young constable type doing Lewis's and the daughter's part really. I wasn't so keen on that I like to have at least a bit of Lewis as there was in the book.

Indeed.

Hee. Your memory was spot on.

Ah, I see. No, Morse has to have his Lewis :-)

Excellent.

And I do agree. I love the old Morse/Lewis relationship.
