Storyline

Nick and Honey Addams return home to find their baby-sitter, Jess Lake, murdered. She was tied to a bed and indeed often posed for bondage and fetish shots for photographer Marion Hammond. She also worked in a university lab with her boyfriend Gideon's father Dr. Massey, who is divorced from his unfeeling wife Stanza. Honey admits that Nick does not have an alibi but he seems to have no link to the next victim, Jess's house mate Silas, whose corpse is also arranged in the style of one of Marion's photos. Lewis finds himself tracking a killer who is a seemingly respectable citizen but who has a split personality rendering them an obsessive. Written by don @ minifie-1

We see a chess game against the computer (a online person). The woman (playing as black) makes a move and the PC says, "... pawn to E5" from the 7th row." This should be, "... pawn to D5." The 4th column on a chessboard is the D-column. See more »

It Just Keeps Getting Worse
23 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really want to like Inspector Lewis. I really do. There is so little in TV or movies that at least tries to have some intellectual content. This is doubtless why such a really terrible program can draw positive reviews. But this episode is the final straw.

This show has gone downhill badly over the last few seasons and Fearful Symmetry is really the pits. The first hour + is completely meaningless as they pull out a deux ex machina in the final 10 minutes to resolves the story in way the was arbitrary and completely divorced from everything that came before. And they did it in the worst, most clichéd, most overused and unimaginative way - a sexually obsessed psychotic. The final scene was beyond laughable. It was pathetic. The producers and writers are doing it paint-by-numbers now. No attempt at developing the characters, making the plots psychologically plausible, etc. They've obvious run out of steam. Actually, they ran out of steam three seasons ago.

I mean this was really the absolute pits. Time to put Inspector Lewis out of its misery.
