Necrosis are most likely suffering from a fungus. I think it could be Alternaria solani.
Purple leaves affect other problem.

The disease seems to be early blight caused by Alternaria solani which can be prevented at transplanting or controlled by use of copper based fungicides. Try a simple Bordeaux mixture i.e a combination of CuSO4, slaked lime Ca(OH)2 and water in a ratio of 1:1:1.

I support Raffaele - it can be Alternaria sp., and purple color can be caused by phosphorus deficiency.
