lewis - series 1 and pilot episode

unmissable - great viewing - the two main characters are a perfect foil for each other.worth staying in for. series just too short for me . cannot wait for the next series - bring it on! if you wondered whether anything could match Morse - well let me tell you - this is equally as good.

Lewis Series 1

Superb series spin off from the very popular Inspector Morse. We see Lewis, now promoted, with his own sidekick DS James Hathaway. The pair take us on various storylines following alleged suicide and of course murder most foul, the stories are full of twists and turns and unsuspecting outcomes with an air of suspense and tension thrown in for good measure. Overall a very enjoyable follow on from a tremendous series, Kevin Whately really comes into his own in this series and we see Lewis emerge at last.

In this age of inane reality shows and celebrity overkill, its nice to watch some English drama that makes you use your brain cells. With some clever links and references back to the Morse series, this DVD won't disappoint. It is well acted and beautifully filmed with Oxford as the back-drop. Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox make an excellent pairing and the plots twist and turn. An unmissable addition to any DVD collection.

I'm a big fan of Morse so I wasn't sure how this would square up, but I was pleasantly surprised. This is an excellent series and very easy to get into.

Fantastic, and a completely realistic follow-on to Inspector Morse. I was very surprised that this has worked so well. Morse if often mentioned, which is a good thing, and makes it more believable. Lewis and Hathaway (Laurence Fox) work very well together, and this time it is Hathaway who is the more educated one. You may even spot Colin Dexter in a small cameo role, just the same as in Morse. The stories are excellent and this is one of the best things on TV. I hope that there will be many more to follow.

Lewis hits the spot for me. Great location shots of Oxford, complicated plots where the destination seems less important than the journey, and Kevin Whately's now rather world-weary Inspector Lewis trawling his way through police procedure to arrive at the right solution. I like Laurence Fox as Lewis' laconic and slightly acerbic assistant Hathaway. This is a working partnership not one of close camaraderie - and that works for me. At least in series one, the writers have refrained from throwing random romance in the way of Lewis - other series go a bit too far with distracting love interests - and this means our heroes can concentrate all their energies on cerebral outcomes rather than physical ones.

Lewis - Series 1 And Pilot Episode

5

Set in beautiful Oxford, with music composed by Barrington Pheloung, who created the music for the original Morse series, it has the setting for an excellent drama. The one off pilot written by Stephen Churchett was watched by 11.31 million viewers guaranteeing a full ITV series. DI Robbie Lewis (Kevin Whatley)and DS James Hathaway (Laurence Fox) investigate. Whom The Gods Would Destroy centres around murder involving a group, Sons Of The Twice Born, whose activities are shrouded in Greek codes. Old School Ties is a case for the duo involving sexual politics, ambition and of course murder of an Oxford student. Expiation is the investigation of the apparent suicide of a housewife in Summertown. All quality dramas in their own right.

Lewis sees the return of Kevin Whately as Lewis, now an inspector following some time overseas during which his wife was killed in an accident. He acquires his own sidekick in the form of Sergeant Hathaway, a fast-track new style policeman, university educated, intelligent, and with, perhaps, more of an obvious sense of humour than Morse. The relationship between Lewis and Hathaway quickly becomes watch-able in the same way as that between Lewis and Morse. There is still the divide between the academic Hathaway and the old fashioned copper Lewis, but this time, lewis is the senior man. The first episode deals with the murder of a young student taking part in sleep studies. There are references to Morse throughout the episode - showing that the great man will not be forgotten. I enjoyed Lewis - I was a bit wary at first, because Morse was so well loved, so atmospheric and so multilayered, but Lewis is shaping up to become necessary viewing. It has all the ingredients - the beautiful shots of Oxford, the clash of intellect between Lewis and Hathaway, and some rattling good plots.

Lewis Series 1

For anyone who missed Morse like I did, this is the next best thing. Kevin Whately is now Detective Inspector Lewis and he is joined by Laurence Fox as DS Hathaway. Together they are a highly entertaining double act as they solve crime in the familiar Oxford surroundings. The format is very similar to that of Morse with likeable characters and well constructed story lines. Morse would be well pleased with his Lewis!
