Trivia

In Inspector Morse (1987), Morse and Lewis worked for the Thames Valley Police - the actual police force that is responsible for this part of the country. However in Inspector Lewis (2007), Lewis and Hathaway work for the fictitious Oxfordshire Police Force because the producers were not allowed to use the name, uniforms, or emblems of Thames Valley Police and could not film at St Aldate's Police Station. It is thought that this is due either to Home Office security restrictions in connection with the Iraq war or because of a lack of cooperation by a newly appointed Chief Constable. See more »

Promising start to series
20 February 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

The film was made to a high standard, in just the same way as the Morse films, with lots of attractive shots of Oxford. The story is a bit convoluted and not terribly credible - just as was often the case with Morse.

The two leads still have some way to go. Lewis is older, wiser and sadder, which unfortunately means that he is less fun to watch. He also, obviously, lacks Morse to react to, which was one of the most entertaining things about the earlier series.

Instead he has his sidekick played by Laurence Fox. He is OK and has potential, but he is not yet firing on all cylinders by any means. In fact, he seems a bit sleepy and is too deadpan. However, I fully intend to keep watching, and am optimistic that there will be good things in the future.
