    The “Dynamic Duo” are, once again, out there doing their thing…solving crimes among the elite and rarified air of one of the oldest universities in the world….carrying on in the finest traditions of “Morse and Lewis” from years past. If all these murders were really going on, I would be very reluctant to allow my son or daughter to attend Oxford University…it’s a jungle out there!….:-). But then it’s so deliciously evil and fun to watch “Lewis and Hathaway” use their intellect and common sense to figure out “whodunit” among the Oxford “Dons” and students who seem to have nothing better to do than pass their time acting intellectually superior to us mere mortals as well as killing each other in extremely creative ways. If you are a devoteé of British Murder Mysteries as I definitely am…:-)…then you will enjoy watching the entire “Inspector Lewis” series which recently ended on PBS after nine seasons. Have we seen the last of “Sargeant James Hathaway”? I hope not.

    having sprouted from the incredible Inspector Morse series, Lewis, now an inspector, has not only carried on the quality and fun of the Morse series but also has carved his own niche in the world of British mysteries. I am a long time fan of Morse and Lewis, going back to actually seeing Morse for the time on PBS when it was first released in 1988, collecting the episodes on VHS however I could, creating a drinking game to play while watching Morse and finally renting them on DVD from Netflix and other sources. I have seen every episode of Morse. I have also now seen every episode of Lewis except for season 9, and must conclude that the Lewis series is exemplary in many ways. It gives us lots of Oxford, the colleges, the canals, the suburbs, the museums, and the culture and subcultures as well. the music from Barrington Phelong (he of the Morse series) is great as usual. and somehow Inspector Lewis has managed to stand up beside Morse without being derivative. The plots and emotional content are totally satisfying in their own way, the relationship between Lewis and Hathaway is extremely gratifying and unique. the coroner, who originally appeared towards the end of the Morse series is great as well.
    I think the writers have done an excellent job of creating a new series with its own “language” while revering and occasionally referencing the heritage of the Morse series whence it came. the visits to the Pubs that Morse loved so much are a fine example of this. A new drinking game will come to me soon, even though Lewis doesn’t need a pint to think.
