Editorial Reviews

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.

These DVDs features subtitles in English (SDH).

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling Viewing September 25, 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series November 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

As usual with the Masterpiece Mysteries, this is a deliberately paced series. Hard to imagine, though, all this nasty hugger-mugger in the gorgeous Oxford settings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspector Lewis: Pilot through series six. December 29, 2013
By Radman
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING Series! February 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have stated, this is one of most well-done series on PBS. The acting is superb, the quality of the episodes is totally compelling and engaging, and I LOVE the humor and chemistry between Lewis and Hathaway. This is well worth the money and a bargain on Amazon, just the thing to keep me going during a long, intolerable winter. . .Lewis, Hathaway and a big bowl of popcorn, can't beat it! The only "quirky" comment I have is that (at least for me) I have to pay a little more attention to the dialogue, for some reason it sounds more "Brit" to me than when I'm watching the U.S. version on public television, but by no means is it a problem. Can't wait to pick up the consecutive seasons, this set really is a "Masterpiece."

Somehow authentic in the attractive environs of Oxford, I find beyond complex plots and solutions, and the often conflicting yet
complementary characters of our detective "team"; an unusual sense that these events and situations are real and "taking place";
several times when I repeated an Episode to clarify a crime's "solution", I felt no sense of repetition beyond that of "looking up" an
actual event: also the complexity of the "happenings" did not seem confusing nor their "solving" out of some "left field" reasoning
that didn't make sense. I've ended up with the satisfaction of suspecting that this series will not be seen and put aside; that there
are episodes worthy of repeat viewing, with a pretty good good chance that there are complexities of character, plot, events and
final solutions that one might find were missed or not fully appreciated on your initial viewing. You might not put this Series in
a forgotten bottom shelf somewhere; they offer an evening's pleasant viewing with includes your renewed alert participation.and
judgement.
