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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Additionally these are Region 2 DVDs which will not play for you unless you either have a Region 2 DVD player or a Region Free player.
However, a good piece of news is that Series 7 has just finished airing in the UK so should be appearing in North America soon, presumably as Season 6. Sadly it looks as though this will be the last of Lewis.
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!
