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

Very good detective series, not quite as good as Morse, but a worthy successor
24 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I like Lewis, I don't think it is as quite as good as Morse, which I do think is one of the best crime dramas ever, but it is a worthy successor. The story lines aren't quite as complex as the ones in Morse, but are never obvious, and are in general well crafted. The scenery with Oxford is just breathtaking, the photography is excellent and the scripts are very good too. I also really like the performances, Kevin Whately is superb as Lewis, and you know what I really wanted to see the character back, so that he could develop more, it's just that it would have been very intriguing to see what life was like after Morse. Laurence Fox is excellent as Hathaway, and Rebecca Front and Clare Holman also impress. What I like most about Lewis, is that even though Morse is dead, Lewis never forgets him, and there are frequent clever references to Morse, therefore I am glad that Morse wasn't forgotten, I personally think that would've been a crime in itself, as he was such an iconic character. All in all, well worth watching. 9/10 Bethany Cox
