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

Goofs

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 »

Worse Lewis episode ever
6 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the lamest Inspector Lewis episode I've ever seen - illogical script, boring and/or unlikeable characters and a real cop-out, stupid ending. The writer seemed to think that the viewer would be interested in a polemic about when is pornography art? There was a nice bit with Lewis calling one of his kids; it was good to see that he appears to still be close to them. And, as ever, Lewis and Hathaway nicely complement each other and do make an intriguing team. But that isn't enough to save the whole dreary episode. Instead of "the butler did it" cliché, in contemporary mysteries we have "the psychotic guy did it" and aren't psychopaths interesting? No, they're not. I did watch the succeeding episode on Masterpiece Theater and am pleased to say that it was much better than this one.
