Trivia

When Jessica Pollock is playing the trumpet, the music scholarship is funded by the Endeavour Award provided by an anonymous bequest. The secretary tells Lewis that the only stipulation the benefactor made was that the winner must "give solace to the soul with their playing". It is obvious that the benefactor was none other than Morse. See more »

A worthy successor to Morse
13 February 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the answer to a Morse fan's prayer - a brilliantly directed and witty pilot that resurrects the feel of the Morse series. Lewis' sidekick (Lawrence Fox as DS Hathaway) provides the enigmatic human element that Morse used to supply yet there is never any doubt that Lewis is the key sleuth now. Brief shades of Morse pop up in the story to amuse the fans and the overall plot maintains the 'brand' of cryptic clues. Shakespeare aficionados will quickly pick up the Hamlet allusions, but they will not necessarily help in sussing the killer. "Lewis" is a first class production that promises much for the fans of classic British murder mysteries.
