Behind the Scenes

It is an excellent series and one that can run for several more .
I can't wait for them to make more!
I like his sidekick too, DS James Hathaway, they make a great pair. Both actors have developed their characters very well imo.
I do have one small gripe with these recordings that at times the music can be a bit over bearing.
I have watched all the series up to six, I look forward to series seven being released in the not too distant future, I hope.
I have no hesitation in giving Lewis five stars.
It's a great series of the friendship / partnership of Lewis and Hathaway, and the building romance of Lewis and Hobson.
Having visited Oxford several years ago, it's lovely to see familiar scenes. Quite enjoying the show. :D
There's the same quality of writing and directing and intriguing problems to solve, not to mention the familiar Oxford settings. I like the fact that there are two subplots woven into the early programs--Morse's legacy and the death of Val, Lewis's wife from the Morse series. No spoilers here. At first I was disappointed by the "device" of having Val die (in the Pilot episode), but as the series progressed it was so well interwoven to the other plots and to the development of Lewis and the other characters that I was no longer bothered.
The music is spot on as well. Barrington Pheloung has provided a new series score which is slightly lighter in tone than that of the Morris series.
I do have a quibble. Early on, Dr Hobson tells Lewis and Hathaway to don "crime scene suits," a new procedure for the Oxfordshire police (instead of the Thames Valley police of the Morse series). However, this requirement is not followed in each show.
Also, I enjoyed the "Series 1-Behind the Scenes" program and the interview with Kevin Whately at the end of series 5. However, I thought that a separate disc for "Behind the Scenes" was unnecessary.
I look forward to series 6...and subsequent shows.
With the extremely efficient Amazon organization I can obtain DVDs quickly and relatively cheaply
