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

A worthy successor to Morse
13 February 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the answer to a Morse fan's prayer - a brilliantly directed and witty pilot that resurrects the feel of the Morse series. Lewis' sidekick (Lawrence Fox as DS Hathaway) provides the enigmatic human element that Morse used to supply yet there is never any doubt that Lewis is the key sleuth now. Brief shades of Morse pop up in the story to amuse the fans and the overall plot maintains the 'brand' of cryptic clues. Shakespeare aficionados will quickly pick up the Hamlet allusions, but they will not necessarily help in sussing the killer. "Lewis" is a first class production that promises much for the fans of classic British murder mysteries.
