This review is from: Lewis - Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
We deliberately avoided watching the series on TV, knowing that the DVD was available so quickly. Our daughter watched them on the TV and reported that number one was ok, number two better, three great and four brilliant.
We have only watched episodes one and two so far and as we both thought those episodes were brilliant then 3 and 4 should indeed be something.
I have heard criticism of the Lewis series but frankly I think that is very picky. This is entertainment, not a structured crime investigation and, based on that, I feel these are really enjoyable and that the later episodes are better than the earlier ones.
Unlike Midsomer Murders which became very tired and rather silly towards the end before John Nettles bowed out (one series too far) I feel that Lewis has still got plenty of life left in it. I love the interaction between the main characters and feel that has developed well and could be developed further, retaining and developing the humour that bubbles between them.
