I'm Anne Sadikov, Inspector. This is my husband, Theodore Platt.
Bloody women. They'll take everything except a man's name these days. You should be Mrs Platt.
Much too close to "prat" for my liking.

From the start, 'Lewis' was utterly commendable. Whately's performance as the newly promoted inspector is as effortless as it is engaging. This opening episode (written by Inspector Morse episode writer Daniel Boyle) manages to balance the suspenseful intrigue with excellent character portrayals, the one not overshadowing the other. As Hathaway, Fox is marvelous. He's clever, knowledgeable, but he can learn a lot from Lewis's experience.
In an age where mindless trite talent (I use the word with a due sense of caution) shows are all the rage, and celebrity culture dominates British television, 'Lewis' is refreshing, high quality entertainment for those preferring not to be brainwashed by junk television.
A thoroughly deserved: 10/10
