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

I love Inspector Lewis and was very surprised by this episode. It was terrible.

No spoilers. The wrap-up is a total cop-out. Lots of loose ends left unresolved. Instead of the usual tangle of clues that get sorted out at the end, the writers just threw every misdirection they could think of into the plot and then closed without reconciling or justifying the many dead-ends.

It was trying to be hip and edgy but ... Somehow the takeaway ended up being, "lady pornographers are cool and nurturing men are really lame." Wha-? This is not the funny / smart / entertaining Inspector Lewis I love. If I wanted dumpster TV I'd watch something on Fox.
