Lewis -- Fine Legacy of Insector Morse
31 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Simple message and short .... WE NEED MORE INSPECTOR LEWIS.

It's totally in the Morse tradition and rocks.

Can we lobby for this to become reality??? I was expecting some sad spin off, but found the plot to be totally compelling in the best tradition of Morse. The 'hollowed out' character of Lewis, trying to come to terms with his life and the tragedy of his family, set against the 'moving on' of the police world that he knew in Oxford, made compelling viewing.

Morse, reaching out from the dead to help Lewis solve the case in this pilot can really be only carried off the one time, but it made for a great introduction to the independent character of Lewis, who has to make sense of Morse's cryptic accidental clues.

The TV critics in the press the following day obviously didn't give a damn, but I feel that there could be a very good series here.
