The loss of Inspector Morse almost brought an end to the era of the Oxford Mysteries - classic "who-done-it's" amid the beauty of the Oxford area. Watch it once to solve the crime, watch it again to soak up the scenery, and watch it over with friends who haven't met Inspector Lewis. He continues the tradition, but is not Inspector Morse...and that is what makes it great. Crimes continue to be solved without Morse, but he isn't forgotten. Lewis has a different personality, and provides a new prospective to the pursuit of the villians. To me, the transition was smooth and with Lewis, it is clear a new team is on the job, yet the crimes are still solved in a meticulous analysis of the evidence and suspects. This set of 4 series is well packaged and manufactured, and I'm eagerly awaiting my pre-ordered series 5, soon to be releasedLewis - Series 5 [DVD] [2011]. And someday I hope to continue my collection with Inspector Hathaway - only this time, let Robbie Lewis retire - with an occasional cameo appearance.

Format: DVD
As a follow-on series to Morse, probably the greatest ever tv detective show, Lewis seemed doomed to suffer in comparison and yet over 16 episodes (so far) the series has more than lived up to expectations. It maintains Morse's languid, elegant, slow-moving style that's at odds with most modern tv shows with their tight editing and camera work courtesy of wobblycam. It continues to attract numerous well-known actors, has high production values, unintrusive quality music, excellent scenery, and has murder mysteries that are so convoluted nobody can figure them out.

Having praised the show, some aspects of the earlier episodes are uncertain and it takes a while to perfect the format. Early on there's an understandable need to link in to Morse and so there are numerous attempts to shoehorn in items such as scribbled messages by Morse on crossword puzzles. Usually these homages don't work and thankfully when the show finds its feet references are used less often and with more effect. The oddest and most important of these links is the decision to morph Lewis's character into, well, him becoming Morse. In the earlier series Lewis provided an essential contrast to his curmudgeonly boss. He was happy, was devoted to his family, and he employed dogged police methodology that would eventually happen across the vital clue to the mystery while Morse was busy falling in love with the murderer and drinking beer.

This time Lewis's wife is dead leaving him morose, we see little of his home life other than to stress that he is lonely, and he solves crimes with brilliant deductive analysis. He even drinks lots of beer and listens to Wagner.

For Morse fans this is a real treat and even better than the original. Lewis and Hathaway make a great team and the relationship between them is fascinating. Both actors are superb with Kevin Whately developing his original character and at times outmorsing Morse. Lawrence Fox is very charismatic as Hathaway and takes on the academic side of Morse with wit.
Beautiful photography and such intelligent writing. Don't stop making them ITV!

Lewis is an excellent series. I am a Morse fan and was sceptical about Lewis alone. The addition of the enigmatic Hathaway has made it succeed. Brilliant selection of guest stars too.

Format: DVD
I had some doubts on this one, Morse was a fine detective series and I honestly thought it would be tough for Kevin Whately successfully pull off the lead role having been his side kick for so long. On reflection though the series works very well, with all the refined trimmings you would expect from a team that has previously honed their skills on the Morse series.

Here Whately steps into the main role as Detective Inspector Lewis, joined by Laurence Fox as Detective Sergeant James Hathaway and Clare Holman plays Dr. Laura Hobson the forensic pathologist as she did in the original Morse series. This set contains the pilot and the series up to 4, currently we're on series 7 so you might want the up to date boxed set if you're a big fan. However if you're looking for a bit of a taster to see if you like it this set is good value and offers enough material to get stuck into.

The first disc kicks off with a pilot which is film length at about 90 minutes we discover Lewis is recently widowed and as expected we more than a few references to Morse including a scene where a similar Jaguar car nearly hits Lewis after he departs the airport with DS Hathaway. It's got a strong story though and some good supporting cast members soon the bodies pile up in a good introduction to the series.

Series 1-4 (including the pilot) has 4 episodes, later Lewis runs had a few more and we're up to series which is a testament to the popularity of the show it's certainly lived up to it's heritage. Lewis as a character develops more over time the widower aspect means he devotes more and more time to his job as a detective at the expense of his personal life.
