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 murders occur, Lewis must decipher a cryptic clue left in an old case file by his former boss, Chief Inspector Morse. Written by garykmcd

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 : )
