Nice go at a spin off from Morse.
29 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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 : )
