White SE5(A?) in Lewis

Post by drcdb15 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 12:21 am

Just to clarify, I am not talking about the Western Isles, nor a typo in Sussex, but the Lewis TV detective series starring wor Neville. Now I don't have a licence so I only see this on ITVHub catchup, so this may have been reported before (I did look, couldn't find anything). Anyway, Series 4, episode 4, Falling Darkness, which has appeared on the Hub in the last day or so, features this car first at 6 minutes in, immediatey adjacent the first body (suspicious in itself if you ask me...) and then more fully at 11 minutes in, apparently lifted onto a flatbed and being taken away. If I understood it right, it belonged in the story to one of the characters, so I expected to see it 'gone over by SOCO or f'rensicks' (I've got all the patter, you know...) but oddly, after it being quite prominent both parked and then being lifted, it is never mentioned again, and the 'owner' who at the start seems to be a major 'person of interest' turns out actually to be a person of quite a lot of irrelevance and is never heard from again... bit of a damp squib, really... not sure why I bothered... :cry:

I think May 2010 was its first mention on here - but I’m not 100% sure if all of these sightings are the same car or same episode :D

Ah, so maybe I didn't check too thoroughly... but did any of those previous reports include a *picture*, eh? Well did they? Huh? Did they? No ! So where's their *evidence*? Those reports will never stand up in court... [just getting into the Lewis ambience a bit there, creating a bit of artistic atmosphere...]. Anyway, seems to me that car is in danger of getting typecast - it'll never find work in any other programme :lol:
