Fry featured in a number of television programmes dealing with the supernatural, including 6ixth Sense with Colin Fry, The Three Mediums, The Best of British Mediumship, Psychic Private Eyes, Colin Fry Live and Most Haunted, on Living TV.
Many people who appeared on his television programmes believe that Fry was able to communicate with people who had died and give some evidence of proof of survival to them in an informal conversation mediums call a reading. Fry received a lot of good feedback about his mediumship from those people after one to one and audience readings on his television programmes. One of those who received a reading was Gail who later posted online about her experience of Colin Fry. She said, "I was invited by my sister to a TV recording of "The Sixth Sense". I had no idea who the person was at the time but it turned out to be someone called Colin Fry. He is a medium. Well, I was quite sceptical when I walked in, but he picked me out of hundreds of people. He started to talk about conversations I had had with different people in the last few days before the recording and he went into so much detail about so many things. I have no doubt that was my little girl. There are no two other people who could know what he knew". Gail's reading is identified by the title "Angel in the Window". The testimonies of these believers in his mediumship can be viewed on You Tube.
His critics assert that he had no paranormal powers and merely used basic cold reading techniques. Fry, who at one time performed under the stage name of "Lincoln", was reportedly exposed in 1992 when, during a séance, the lights were unexpectedly turned on and he was seen holding a spirit trumpet in the air, which the audience had been led to believe was being levitated by spiritual energy.
