Format: DVD
This follow-on series to Inspector Morse, which is probably the greatest ever British tv detective show, seemed doomed to suffer in comparison and yet over 20 episodes (and counting) it's more than lived up to expectations. It maintains Morse's languid, well-paced style that's at odds with most modern tv shows with their tight editing, camerawork courtesy of wobblycam, and their obsession with attracting young audiences. It continues to feature familiar actors, has high production values, unintrusive quality music, excellent familiar scenery, and has murder mysteries that are so convoluted nobody can figure them out.

Having praised the show, some aspects of the early episodes are uncertain and it takes a while to perfect the format. Early on there's an understandable need to link to Morse and so there are numerous attempts to shoehorn in references such as scribbled messages by Morse on crossword puzzles. Usually these homages don't work as well as they ought to and so 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 him becoming Morse. In the earlier series Lewis provided an interesting contrast to his curmudgeonly boss. He was content, was devoted to his family, and he employed dogged police methodology that would find the vital clue to the mystery while Morse was falling in love with the murderer and drinking beer.

Five years on, Lewis's wife is dead leaving him morose, so 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.

Kevin Whately, he who was the "bag man" for Morse, has developed the character of Robbie Lewis into not just a worthy successor to his old mentor, but a superior one.

The series thus far has seen Inspector Lewis grow into the role of mentor to Detective Sergeant Hathaway (Laurence Fox) - and the two into a formidable team.

The scripts are marvelously convoluted and meticulously constructed, with strong performances by all regular actors as well as the liberally-used familiar top-drawer actors (although one episode in the second season is glaringly out of sync, rather pedestrian all round).

The photography/cinematography is top-drawer, none of the wriggly hand-held camera work that so irritates the viewer. Music is muted, complimentary and mostly classical/operatic, and dialogue is crisp, intelligent and riveting. (This is, after all, Oxford, not Romford.)

This is the second "complete" series - the first having been series one through four. A sixth series has already been set for the broadcast schedule, so not doubt there will be more iterations. I, for one, hope the series continues for much longer, as long as it can maintain the standard of excellence.

If only they would put the discs into a more compact case! The entire Morse collection of 30-odd DVDs is only three inches thick on my shelf, this group of 20 discs takes up a nearly half s foot! Just a niggle . . .

You'll not regret buying the entire collection if you don't already have the early sets - it's that good.

I loved the Inspector Morse series and was reluctant to watch this as I felt it could not compare. Well, it does not need to since it is a great series in its own right. Completely different to Morse but with the same components - intricate plot, red herrings, likeable characters with significant flaws and set in Oxford.

I can't wait for them to make more!

I have never seen the Morse series, but I am a great fan of murder mysteries and decided to try "Lewis". Oxford is a beautiful city in which to film, and the university buildings offer great interiors.

The plots are complex and layered, so much so that sometimes I had trouble keeping track of all the plots and subplots. Being a Yankee, I sometimes turned on the English subtitles to understand what was being said, as some of the accents were thicker than others.

The best part of the series is the evolution of the partnership of Lewis and Hathaway, his assistant, as well as Lewis's developing relationship with another regular series character. His troubles with his superior are also fun to watch.

I finished the last episode last night, and am sad to have no more episodes to look forward to.

I was actually backwards in watching this series in that I had found them on iTunes - which only had the latter series (4 & 5), and it got me interested in seeing what happened in the early season, so I ordered the box set to watch.

It's a great series of the friendship / partnership of Lewis and Hathaway, and the building romance of Lewis and Hobson.

Having visited Oxford several years ago, it's lovely to see familiar scenes. Quite enjoying the show. :D

After being a Morse fan for so long, I didn't think it possible that I would consider Lewis the superior series but I do. The connection between Lewis and Hathaway is much better than between Morse and Lewis. I also love that Barrington Pheloug is still doing the music for this series as in Morse. Absolutely fantastic.
