Nice go at a spin off from Morse. I felt this show was well thought out and avoided being to stuck in its obvious heritage. We had some nice touches that related to the current story that gave us a hint of what was and we were left with a positive feeling of what could be.
Lewis's new partner had various traits Morse possessed and this created a nice dynamic between them, however the new partner had his own back story that could lead to interesting quirks should another episode be made.
I enjoyed the show, well cast, plotted and very well shot.
Not Columbo though : )
