Storyline

Ageing gay lecturer R.G. Cole is strangled after going to watch an illegal bare knuckle boxing match. He was also due to stage a Wagner festival sponsored by South African club owner Hansie Kriel, whose daughter Sarah was literally being fought over by two of the young boxers. One of them, student Milo Hardy, is also murdered following a trip to Berlin, where Hansie plans to open a new club and from where Cole's protege Richard Helm and his mother Valli escaped during the Cold War. Robbie believes that the victims were about to identify the Stasi informant responsible for Valli's liberal husband's death over twenty years before and sends Sergeant Hathaway to Germany to prove this . The culprit's identity will unfortunately play havoc with Robbie's love life. Written by don @ minifie-1

Best of Inspector Lewis series I've seen
22 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A nice piece of writing and well acted by the entire cast. I especially liked Tom Goodman-Hill as Richard Helm in this episode. The way he interpreted the character and brought a subtle performance in the role was brilliant. I hope to see more of him in the future.

I have always liked the chemistry between the Lewis and Hathaway characters, a tribute to the chemistry of the two actors in those roles, but I really enjoyed Goodman-Hill's character in this episode and felt it brought a certain flavor to the mystery. He is an under-rated actor.

I first noticed him in Death In Holy Orders, the P. D. James vehicle starring Martin Shaw. Hard to not enjoy these British mysteries . . .
