If, Jane, you were referring to the earlier call, could you modify your post to make that clear?


The original post now benefits from the insertion of two words which, of course, the quote doesn't. It's up to you to make assumptions about which one you believe is meant to be correct.

I told her which call you were referring to - load of old fuss about nothing!

So he/she doesn't take your word for it and as a result has now, under the banner of "............could you modify your post to make that clear" ended up with differing ones from me. I'd say that's going to be rather confusing for someone so pedantic. All TOTALLY unnecessary.

Thank you for adding the words "late evening".  Why would his mentioning of the duration of that call relate to recalling the details or sequence of calls made in the middle of the night?

Similarly, why would mentioning the TV programmes (by name) he had watched the night before seem important unless he was trying to establish an alibi early on?

Why wouldn't he class them as important ? At least he remembered what he'd watched and was no doubt questioned about them  ::)

When police take witness statements they ask witnesses questions about what they did  ::)

An answer like "I watched TV" would have sufficed, not a run down of the shows, he mentioned those to help table his alibi.

Why would he be questioned about what he watched? He wasn't a suspect at that point. The police would have simply asked him what he did - that level of detail was NOT important at that time.

To my mind it indicates he never went to bed.

It's par for the course isn't it ? By their very nature police work on suspicion.

No, he wouldn't have been asked what he watched on TV - ridiculous suggestion!

5 people are dead and they need to get the fundamentals - Bamber is not a suspect - they aren't interested in what he watched! At that juncture, what he watched would have been as relevant as what colour pants he was wearing!

Because at that point, Jeremy had spent long enough with them feeding them the subliminal message that it woz Sheila wot dun it. They weren't looking for anyone else.
