3 Sue Kay from Birmingham: I have loads of favourites, but one is the home movies in Murder By Remote which were obviously Dick's own home movies. Another moment I love is when Mark thinks the racy book he is buying is a cook book in Murder By The Book & Amanda & Jesse know the truth.
2 Ann Rivers from Horley: Favourite DM moments and memories ? This could take up the entire site, but I'd agree with Sue, the banter and brotherly bickering between Steve and Jesse is just priceless ! I love the closeness and loyalty of these four friends who are more like family. And the humour too, of course, as well as the in jokes. One of my favourites is where the three musical instruments that Charlie Schlatter plays, and his love of golf, are worked into the storyline.
1 Susan Gamble from Brighouse: Favourite moments or memories from Diagnosis Murder? Any of the banter between Steve and Jesse (Barry Van Dyke and Charlie Schlatter) - they do it so well. Or the scene at the end of Murder x 4 (6th season), where all the lights go out and all you can hear is Jesse's infectious giggle!
I am so pleased you're screening this series (particularly from season 3). thank you so much!
