Revenge is a dish best served chilled
1 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lewis and Hathaway are asked to investigate the poisoning of a bishop in "Wild Justice," an entry into the Inspector Lewis series.

This episode has more characters, more secrets, and more plots going than six episodes, so one has to really pay attention. One of the reasons I like this series and loved Inspector Morse and many of the other British mysteries is that they're not passive entertainment. One has to think and focus instead of just recline and take it all in.

The poisoning of the bishop is just the beginning. There's an election going on for Vice Regent with lots of competition until some of the candidates get killed. Then there are the mysterious notes quoting Thomas Aquinas "Revenge is a kind of wild justice." And this series of murders seems to be pointing to one person, as they match the murders in great literature.

On top of all of that, Lewis has a decision to make.

Kevin Whately as Lewis and Laurence Fox as Hathaway make a great team, and the dialogue given to them is very witty. They play off one another well.

Enjoyable, with an excellent cast and the magnificent accompanying Oxford setting.
