5.0 out of 5 stars Another Entertaining Programme Bites The Dust, 20 Feb 2013
This review is from: Lewis - Series 7 [DVD] (DVD)
The seventh Lewis series has given immense enjoyment. Unfortunately this is the last. Screen-writers and cast (I suspect the latter) have called it a day. We are left with filmed legacy of an expertly produced project. Lewis ('call me Robbie'), has Kevin Whatley being the obsessive never-go-home detective masking any social life and memories. Alongside is the erudite Hathaway (Edward Fox), a cool side-kick perfect foil for Lewis with a veritable encyclopaedic knowledge This seemingly antithesis of pairing has had the makings of a mutually successful and respectful unit.

Series 7 is a three episode collection ( erroneously split by a week in installments). The subject matter is typical Oxford in the, dare I say it, 'Morse and Lewis' tradition. Lewis, however is his own man, and the finale is cleverly manouvered to the obvious personal end points for him, blind to the mutual needs of himself and colleague, pathologist Laura Hobson (Clare Holman) and Hathaway's self-searching need for fulfillment. A parting of the ways but the series remain for hours of pleasure. The last episode was melodramatic and emotional, but appropriate. Thanks to all involved.

Are the episodes continuous on the discs?
Or are they (for whatever mad reason) split into two parts as they were on TV.
Thanks!

You have them as they should be. 2 Discs continuously.

Many Thanks. I thought they would be continuous, but you never know.

Just thought i'd mention it, Hathaway is played by Laurence Fox. Edward is his father (or uncle - never can remember!)
