5.0 out of 5 stars As Morse said: thank Lewis for me, 6 July 2013
This review is from: Lewis - Series 7 [DVD] (DVD)
Alas, it looks like Inspector Lewis will be retiring at the end of season six, and his patient manner of policing will come to an end as the curtain is drawn over the series.

As I sit with a pint of best bitter in front of my TV and the end titles of "Intelligent Design", the last episode in the series, scroll to a weary closure, I realize that I have spent over *twenty years* with with Morse and Lewis, for I have been acquainted with them since the 1980s, and they along with Jean Innocent and James Hathaway and Chief Superintendent Strange have regularly entered my home as friends and consorted with me, allowing me to observe them in the vicissitudes of their jobs and lives -- much like 'take your kid to work' day, except on multiple days every year for two decades.

And alas, now that will end.

Much as Lewis missed his wife after she died, with a shallow lingering scar of sorrow but without any trace of cloying sentimentality, so shall I miss this show. And since Oxford has been described as the "city of dreaming spires", it is but natural that I ask myself,

What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.

But before I can turn too maudlin and reach for the Glenfiddich, I hear a voice in my ear. "But cheer up laddie", I hear Lewis say with his quiet Geordie air, "there's always 'Endeavour' to watch on the telly now."

And so there is, Robbie. So there is.
