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.
