Retired college teacher and playwright Swithin Fry returns to the show to share an update regarding the poignant story of his penpal correspondence with Tim, a convict on Ohio's Death Row.  From his vantage point in the United Kingdom, Swithin became aware of the difficulties Tim has faced seeking a retrial, leading to Swithin visiting Tim in prison and launching "Tim's Hope Campaign". 

Swithin has been corresponding with Tim since 2011.  In Swithin's words: "But the more I read, the more I became convinced that Timothy Coleman is innocent. He was no saint at the time, but I do believe he did not commit the murder for which he is now facing execution."  Tim has applied to The Exoneration Project to ask that details of his case be reviewed.

Swithin has created a one-man play about his journey with Tim which he has performed to wonderful reviews in the U.K.
