5.0 out of 5 stars Very glossy stuff !, 8 April 2008
This review is from: Lewis: Series 1 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Messars Fox & Whately play their parts very well indeed ! It is very well acted & filmed . As a person living in Oxford I am so pleased that Lewis has done so well. This series reminds me of the more recent Poirot's inasmuch as Lewis is still Lewis but he is a darker and sadder sort of person who is deprived of the comedic moments that he used to share with Supt Strange and of course Morse himself. This is Robbie Lewis as a mature person who has faced tradegy & despair at losing both his wife and best friend. Hathaway is a superb sidekick & being a sentimental sort I loved the homage that has been paid to Morse. It is very nice to see Oxford on TV again as that fair City contains many splendid sites that the show reminds locals like me just how lucky we are to live there. It is a well written & the acting is top draw. The plot lines are as strong as ever while the characters have the depth & substance of Morse itself. All in all I went in with low expectations & came away pleasantly suprised! A must for people who have seen all the episodes of Morse and who fancy something of a similar genre. It is an updated reworking of a successful franchise and it is pleasing to watch.
