Kevin Whately stars as Detective Inspector Robbie Lewis in four new stories, ably assisted by his partner DS Hathaway, played by Laurence Fox. Together they investigate more murder mysteries against the historic and glorious backdrop of Oxford and its University campus.
Episodes include: The Soul Of Genius; Generation Of Vipers; Fearful Symmetry; The Indelible Stain
The Soul Of Genius
When botanist Liv Nash accidentally digs up the body of the recently buried Murray Hawes, Lewis and Hathaway are set upon a seemingly impossible quest. Murray was a man possessed, fixated upon "solving" an impossible riddle by Lewis Carroll. But could his obsession have been dangerous enough to get him killed?
Generation Of Vipers
Lewis and Hathaway are drawn into a world of virtual bullying, but very real murder, when Professor Miranda Thornton is found dead after her dating video is leaked onto a vicious website. Although initially it appears to be a suicide, the deeper they investigate, they realise that Miranda's death is actually the final revenge of an old enemy.
When babysitter Jessica Lake is discovered dead, Lewis and Hathaway are drawn into diverse new worlds beyond the usual Oxford colleges--squats and swinging suburbia, monkey labs and fetish photography. But which of these new realms led to the murder of Jessica Lake?
The Indelible Stain
When controversial American academic, Paul Yelland, is invited to speak at Oxford's Department of Criminology, it stirs up a lot of deep-seated emotions. And when he is found strangled in his room later that night, Lewis and Hathaway have several suspects who fall into the frame--was his murder motivated by politics, ambition, or vengeance?

The pair leisurely stroll around Oxford, interviewing the usual bunch of well known British character actors while trying to get to the bottom of this week's convoluted mystery. True, the mysteries are becoming ever more contrived and, lets be honest, totally bonkers and at times incomprehensible, but it's so full of compelling charm that I can very easily forgive that. It's full of well known faces, beautiful shots of Oxford, suitably recondite enigmas and a gentle humour. Fox, Whatley, Claire Holman and Rebecca Front all have their roles down pat, and the interplay between the four, especially that between Lewis and Hathaway and Lewis and Hobbs gives the series a reliable backbone and some of its most memorable moments. In what looks like it might be a permanent addition, there is also a new DI in town, Peterson. Played by Jason Durr (who starred in my favourite ever Morse episode Deadly Slumber as a different character) he brings an interesting new dynamic to the series, especially the relationship between Hobbs and Lewis.
It's TV detective drama of the first order. Ideal for those who like gentle, atmospheric, mysteries with weird and wonderful plots. Series 6 comprises of:
The Soul of Genius
Generation of Vipers
The Indelible Stain
The four episodes are on two discs, two episodes per disc. They are in two standard DVD cases, collected into a thin card slipcase. Extras are limited to a 5.1 surround sound or a stereo sound track. The pictures are presented in then usual 16:9 aspect ratio, and look fantastic. 5 stars
His relationship with his sidekick, Hathaway, is played well by both actors, and the contrast between them clear but not laboured. Lawrence Fox is maturing as an actor, and the interplay between his character and Lewis' is clever, gentle, and watchable. Their differences are marked, but their essential shared morality and goodness shines out. As Hathaway learns more about himself, policing and life, he is getting a sense of humour, and understanding that his rough and ready Geordie boss knows far more about far more than he could have thought.
I love these shows. I am writing this after seeing the first two episodes in Lewis Series 6, and if the rest of the series is as good as these first two, buy this set! You certainly won't be disappointed.
Lewis - Series 6 [DVD]
This series follows the strong tradition set by the earlier series. We thought that Oxford seemed like a dangerous place to live as the body count mounted during the time of Inspector Morse. Lewis continues to add rather alarmingly to the death toll. As previously these episodes are quite varied. For example, this time round one episode concerns the strange death of a babysitter, whilst the final episode involves the mysterious death of a visiting lecturer which may have racial overtones. The two hour feature film length format gives the stories time to develop fully in an unhurried manner.
It is interesting that as this series has progressed, DS James Hathaway has become as significant a figure as Inspector Robbie Lewis and it is hard to imagine Lewis without him. It is very similar to the way Lewis became a central figure alongside Inspector Morse. It is an interesting statistic that the character of Lewis was introduced as long ago as 1986 so it is hardly surprising that we have grown rather used to him in the intervening 26 years! As always the rather regal buildings of Oxford provide an excellent backdrop for the series.Read more ›
Everything about it from the pilot has been perfect, the pairing of Kevin Whately ( I love everything he has ever done )and Laurence Fox is brilliant. Laurence has proved to be a credit to the Fox family of actors. I think the casting has been masterly, the story lines are brilliant and who could not love the scenes of Oxford. I am from the North of England but we always visit Oxford when we are on holiday in England and much as I love my adopted home , this programme always makes me homesick. We have watched all 5 series over & over and I think no. 6 will get the same treatment. Please keep them coming.
