Keith Gow and Ash Crowe began discussing the Tommy Westpall Universe back in 1999 with other denizens of alt.tv.homicide – by 2000, Detective Munch had moved from Baltimore to New York and Dr Ehrlich from St Elsewhere made a cameo appearance in Homicide: The Movie.
The original Tommy Westphall site – A Multiverse Explored (now archived) appeared a year or two later.
If you took all the emails we wrote while discussing Tommy, whether to include The Simpsons and the effect of Jay Leno on the universe (ours and Tommy’s) – they’d probably stretch from where Ash lives in the US to where Keith lives in Australia. We had a lot more free time on our hands at the turn of the century.
