Storyline

DI Lewis returns to Oxford after several years absence and is reluctantly assigned by his new boss, DCS Innocent, to the murder of an Oxford mathematics student who was shot while participating in a sleep study. The key-code used to access the sleep lab was assigned to a fellow maths student, Daniel Griffin, but Daniel's math tutor has provided him with an alibi. Daniel is a maladjusted young man who will soon inherit his father's automotive empire. He is disruptive and has no respect for his uncle who now heads the company. The future of the company however rests on an impending deal with Japanese investors who insist that family unity is all important at this time. When two other murder occurs, Lewis must decipher a cryptic clue left in an old case file by his former boss, Chief Inspector Morse . Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Kate Jekyll was intended to be a recurring character and, in the longer term, a love interest for Lewis. For various reasons, including Kevin Whately objecting to killing off Valerie Lewis only to immediately replace her with a substitute character, she never appeared again in the full series.

I can't improve on "brainbiter's" comments except to say Robbie (Kevin Whatley)showed great emotional expressions again as he did in the Morse series. You want to be a friend and console him in his loss and explode in quiet anger at the new supervisor. Proud when he shows his hand with the wedding band still worn. How well he brought back the respect and honor due to his lost partner but showed a willingness to accept a new partner even being threatened by a scholarly mind. Well done to you new writers and cast members. I look forward to new shows. How fortunate we are to have Laurence Fox playing DS Hathaway, another believable partner to Inspector Lewis.
