Inspector Lewis Pilot through Series 6. FULL UK-LENGTH EDITION.

Inspired by the Inspector Morse novels of Colin Dexter, Inspector Robert Lewis (Kevin Whately) steps out of the shadow of his mentor—the inimitable Inspector Morse (John Thaw)—in this highly-acclaimed series of 27 intricate mysteries. Together with his brooding, inscrutable partner, Detective Sergeant James Hathaway (Laurence Fox), they take on the elite criminal underworld of Oxford, England, relying on Lewis’ instinct and Hathaway’s intellect to see past appearances and into the hearts of their upper-crust foes.

This set contains all 27 mysteries through Series 6: the series pilot episode; Whom the Gods Would Destroy; Old School Ties; Expiation; And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea; Music to Die For; Life Born of Fire; The Great and the Good; Allegory of Love; The Quality of Mercy; The Point of Vanishing; Counter Culture Blues; The Dead of Winter; Dark Matter; Your Sudden Death Question; Falling Darkness; Old Unhappy Far Off Things; Wild Justice; The Mind Has Mountains; The Gift of Promise; The Soul of Genius; Generation of Vipers; Fearful Symmetry; The Indelible Stain; Down Among the Fearful; The Ramblin’ Boy; Intelligent Design.

Following what was most likely the last ever episode of Lewis, this is the DVD set we have all been waiting for. It contains all 27 episodes in the six seasons of Inspector Lewis including the original pilot. Do not be misled by the Amazon description which at the time of writing states a running time of 430 minutes - I presume it will be corrected in due course. In fact these 14 discs run to no less than 2,430 minutes, which is enough to keep us all absorbed for some time! Most importantly these are stated to be the full length UK edition - there has been much criticism of cuts made for the North American releases of some of the Lewis DVD sets in the past.

It is hard to believe that the pilot show was broadcast as recently as 2006, as it seems that Inspector Lewis has been part of our viewing lives for so much longer. I think this is to a large extent, because the character of Lewis first appeared in Morse as long ago as 1986 and has been played by Kevin Whately throughout. Few would have imagined initially that Inspector Lewis would be as successful as Morse, but it has certainly achieved at least as much as that series. Just as the chemistry between Sergeant Lewis, as he was then, and Morse (John Thaw) was a defining strength in that show, the bond between Lewis and DS James Hathaway (Laurence Fox) has increased with time and has been one of the main strengths of Inspector Lewis.

To my mind the other factor which has made Lewis such a success is the excellent script writing. The stories are varied and complex. This is not the sort of drama which you are going to be able to watch with one eye on something else and still pick up all the detail of the plot, as you can with much of what is shown on TV.

Great series, especially as it is the UK broadcast version which is unedited. Typical British detective series which might not appeal to many US viewers as the plots develop at a leisurely pace, and tend to be a little more intellectual. If you enjoy good acting, and a well written plot with not too much gratuitous violence, you will love this.

I am a huge fan of the series, but never saw the last season (no longer the last, but was at the time) on our PBS station. I wanted an uncut collection so bought this set as they promised it was the original UK version.

I really hate that Masterpiece Mystery hacks the shows apart so they can have time for their non-commercial commercials. In this age of worldwide social media, that is no longer acceptable. The fans from all countries talk to each other and those of us in the US quickly discover what scene is missing or butchered.

When I saw that the pilot through series 6 had been released WITH SUBTITLES, I had to purchase. This series is wonderfully written and produced. Those who love scenery, will enjoy the views of Oxford. The relationship between Inspector Lewis and his sergeant is charming and amusing. Great mysteries.

Excellent series. Only 4 stars because the music is often so loud that it drowns out the dialogue. It's too bad there is no way for viewers to adjust the music tract separately from the voice tract.

Excellent price on the entire series. What a shame it appears to be ending. Kevin Whately has been wonderful in the role of Lewis for all these years. Will miss him immensely. Laurence Fox places his sergeant with great wit. The photography of Oxford is superb.

Anyone who liked the late great Inspector Morse will enjoy this series, no question. More crime in Oxford with just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.

I followed Inspector Morse series and was pleased to follow that up by going on to Inspector Lewis. Now I can catch up on the parts missed.
