The detectives learn that Soo, who disappeared fifteen years earlier, was Martha's organ scholar and once dated Carl Drew, Stella's husband. Finding Richard's blood on her suitcase Lewis suspects an affair with the professor. After Adam hangs himself Lewis discovers how Rachel's DNA came to be in the car and uncovers a scam by which parents - including Adam's father - paid huge sums of money to get their under-achieving children into the college. Carl and Dr Yardley were in on it and Richard was about to expose it. However, following the discovery of yet another body Lewis finds that Soo and Richard were killed in order to effect a different cover-up. Written by don @ minifie-1

From remorseful day to intelligent design
14 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lewis retires and I feel as though I have lost a part of my own biographical narrative, accompanied as I have been by Morse and then Lewis. Of course, Hathaway cannot possibly quit policing. What would he do instead? Could he be a private detective? He is too serious to be an estate agent. But one of the most pleasing and poignant touches to end the Lewis series, no the Morse and Lewis series, is the final scene, DI and faithful Sargent, drinking beer, same place, exactly the same view, as Morse and Lewis in The Remorseful Day, when Morse recites the poem in the last Morse episode. Kevin Whately plays this moment so well, the camera crew catch this so well, Hathaway asks "what?" Maybe it is my construction as a fan of both Morse and Lewis ... But I think a slight gesture on camera by Whately and Fox feels like sublime TV acting. Full circle, well done.
