Kevin Whately, Laurence Fox, Clare Holman, Rebecca Front.
Series pilot: Home from a two-year assignment in the British Virgin Islands, Inspector Robert Lewis is back in familiar territory Oxford, England five years after the death of his long-time partner, the legendary Inspector Morse. Teamed up with the much younger Detective Sergeant James Hathaway, Lewis barely makes it out of the airport before falling into his first murder investigation. But even if Lewis solves the case, will that be enough to change his new boss' plans to move him from the front lines to a training assignment?
In Whom the gods would destroy, Detectives Lewis and Hathaway are thrown into a delicate murder case that implicates one of Oxford University's most prominent figures when an old classmate of his is found dead.
DVD, region 1, anamorphic widescreen (16:9) presentation; Dolby Digital, NTSC.
Those who enjoyed the Morse series will enjoy Lewis as well, although seeing the earlier series will make it easier to understand this later one. As a student at Oxford (albeit only for one semester), I loved seeing all the places on campus in the background of this TV series.
