Unbelievably good, very well worth watching.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lewis: Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
Unbelievably? Well, yes. Like other reviewers we are huge fans of Morse, having watched and re-watched our full set of DVDs and bought this in hope rather than real expectation.
Having now watched the entire first series of 'Lewis' we are thoroughly impressed. Similar care in the writing, casting and production, similarly well-judged performances (and camera work to die for) make this series a big hit in its own right. But it _is_ different.
The scene is set a few years after the death of Morse, and Lewis is coming back to a much-changed situation in Oxford after some time working abroad following the sudden and unsolved death of his beloved wife. His new boss presents some challenges from day one, and his temporarily assigned Sergeant Hathaway is a cunningly-portrayed conundrum, expertly played, and the plots are for us as involved and involving as ever.
Well done the team!
With something this good, only five stars are enough.
