Editorial Reviews

If the three approximately 90-minute episodes that comprise the sixth season of the British Masterpiece Mystery series Inspector Lewis are the show's swan song--and there are plenty of hints that that's the case--then loyal viewers will be justifiably bereft. What's good about this show is obvious enough: clever premises, veteran actors thoroughly at home in their roles, touches of subtle wit, and murder cases with enough suspects to keep even the most diligent viewers busy. But perhaps almost as important is what it isn't--namely, loud, graphically violent, "cutting edge," or the least bit hip. Inspector Robert "Robbie" Lewis (Kevin Whately), a self-described "plodder" who's nearing retirement, and his right-hand man, Sergeant James Hathaway (Laurence Fox), solve their cases the old-fashioned way, interviewing suspects and witnesses, checking out the crime scene, conferring with Medical Examiner Dr. Laura Hobson (Clare Holman), with whom Lewis is now romantically entwined, and so on. They've got their work cut out for them. In "Down Among the Fearful," a postgraduate research scientist posing as a clairvoyant as part of a "field experiment" is murdered with a combination of barbiturates and another drug powerful enough to kill an elephant. Was it his unhappy wife, her meddlesome mother, a rival psychic, or someone else entirely? In "Intelligent Design," a biochemistry professor released after serving a year in jail for killing a young woman while driving drunk is almost immediately run over by his own car. Once again, suspects are legion: the young woman's family, the professor's wife, colleagues, and former students… As in all good mysteries, the perp is never the most obvious choice. But very few others find their characters discussing, say, the possible compatibility of faith and rationality, among other heady topics. They don't make 'em like Inspector Lewis anymore; they apparently don't even make Inspector Lewis anymore, which is all the more reason for amateur sleuths to treasure this smart, engaging show. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Lewis and Hathaway face three new mysteries inspired by the Inspector Morse novels of Colin Dexter. Episodes include... Down Among the Fearful - Reuben Beatty, a research fellow from Oxford's Department of Psychology, is found dead in the offices of psychic Randolph James. Lewis and Hathaway soon discover that Reuben had been leading an elaborate double life, moonlighting as a clairvoyant. Can a fellow psychic help solve the investigation? The Ramblin' Boy - While Hathaway takes time off in Kosovo, Lewis is assigned a temporary sidekick, young constable Alex Gray. Together, Lewis and Gray investigate the discovery of an embalmed body of a man who died of cancer. However, the crematorium confirms that a body was burned, leaving Lewis with one question-who was buried in the coffin? Intelligent Design - Recently released from prison after killing someone in a driving accident, Richard Seager, a former biochemistry professor, is murdered-crushed to death by his own car. Between Seager's wife, his victim's family, and his colleagues at the university, Lewis and Hathaway have a long road to travel and a great deal to investigate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is This the Last of Lewis? April 14, 2013
Format:DVD
Lewis is one of the few `must see' offerings on TV these days so it is so sad that it appears that Season 6 will also be the last. When this series was announced, Laurence Fox (Hathaway) said that there would be no more and stated that both he and Kevin Whately (Lewis) now wanted to pursue other interests. There are just three stories in this series whereas there have normally been four. However, in a break with the previous custom, each is split into two parts.

It is hard to believe that the character of Lewis was introduced in the long running Morse series as long ago as 1986! The chemistry between Morse and Lewis was an obviously significant factor in the success of that series, just as Lewis and Hathaway complement each other in Lewis and the relationship has grown as time has gone on. It is hard to imagine Lewis without Hathaway in the same way that it was hard to imagine Morse without Lewis.

The stories in this series are interesting and well thought out and the plots are quite varied. Down Among the Fearful involves a psychic who has been murdered, in Ramblin' Boy a corpse is discovered which has an interesting background (the corpse not the person) and finally in Intelligent Design, a man is released from prison after serving time for causing death by dangerous driving but it appears that not everyone has forgiven or forgotten his crime. Interesting developments in Lewis' personal life too!

We are up to 27 episodes of Lewis (not quite as many as the 33 Morse managed), and we often watch the earlier ones as they are a joy to revisit. It does rather look as though that is going to be it, and the end of the last episode did have a certain finality about it. However, we can only hope that those involved do have a change of heart.

This last collection was released as "Lewis: Series Seven" in the U.K. (available via Amazon U.K.); here it will be released as "Series Six." Sadly, although vague promises have been proffered that more spin-offs may someday be made, this is the last venture for the superb duo of Kevin Whately as Detective Inspector Robert Lewis, and Laurence Fox as D.S. James Hathaway. The series balances their relationship, each with his own strengths, no egos running amuck. Kevin Whately brings depth and drollery to his characterization of the widowed Lewis, whilst Laurence Fox as Hathaway adds wry humor as an ex-seminarian with issues of his own. Fox is gifted with a remarkable voice that would not go amiss in other ventures. Clare Holman as Dr. Laura Hobson adds another rich dimension with her elegant intelligence. Rebecca Front is great as the formidable "Mum," Chief Superintendent Innocent. Of course, it's a treat to meander through Oxford's beautifully filmed spires, cobbled streets, and nearby countryside. The tensions between upper-class academics and regular citizens of Oxford are examined.

Each of the three episodes is feature-length, total running time is approximately 266 minutes; English subtitles; but no Specials! The three episodes:

Down Among the Fearful
Cramped in rooms in his Oxford college with his wife and baby, psychology student Reuben Beatty leads a double life, moonlighting as a psychic. He hopes to make more money for his young family, but these aspirations are dashed when he is found mysteriously murdered after a session; his wife has no idea what her husband has been up to. Lewis and Hathaway investigate the world of psychic mediums in Oxford, not all is easily explained through rational means. Meanwhile, Dr.

Format:DVD
I bought the UK DVD release last February both because I knew it would be out months later here, (at the rate PBS is showing things you might get the U.S. release first too) and I was in a hurry to see some good British TV. I think this, the last of Lewis, might be better that what in the U.S. is called "Season Five", not much to complain about here. I found the Lewis/Hobson romance (hinted at in the past season or so) a bit rushed and thought another episode length could've been used to develop things a bit better but the main parts of the episodes are well worthwhile.

I'd read online in the British paper "The Telegraph" that this would be the end, Kevin Whately saying Lewis was of retirement age and that he & costar Laurence Fox both wanted to move on- he was open to "one-offs" so maybe we'll get more Lewis yet.
The British edition has no extras other than subtitling, doesn't look like the U.S. will either.
I'll be buying the U.S. release in Blu ray, I'm sure it'll look great, I know the stories are and the location Oxford area locations always are!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspector Lewis series - all of them June 11, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My whole family has enjoyed this series and will miss it terribly. All of the actors are great and we wish it would continue. I am sorry that it is only 3 episodes for the last of the series. It has been well thought out and very engrossing. We will miss all of you and wish you good luck in your new endeavors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series May 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have watched all of these and love them all. Can't say anything negative about them. Other people always give a very nice detailed review and so when I give one it is hard to come up with more than is already said - except that I love them.
