Kevin Whately returns in the title role for the third series of this popular 'Morse' spin-off. The much-loved Oxford policeman is once again joined by his trusty sidekick, Det Sgt. James Hathaway (Laurence Fox) as he investigates more mysterious murders in the idyllic surroundings of the University campus. Episodes comprise: 'Allegory of Love', 'The Quality of Mercy', 'The Point of Vanishing' and 'Counter Culture Blues'.
What could have been an ill-advised spin-off continues to excel as Lewis arrives at its third series. Firmly stepping out of the shadows of Inspector Morse, Kevin Whately as Inspector Lewis once more is solving murders and mysteries in Oxford. And again, he’s joined by Laurence Fox as DS Hathway, his partner in crime-solving.
And Lewis gives the pair some interesting scenarios to get their teeth into. There are four feature-length stories in total, and things get started when a Czech barmaid is discovered, having being slashed to death. There’s, as you’d expect, more to the crime than immediately meets the eye, and that convention continues in the following episode, where a student Shakespearian production abruptly ends after one of the cast is stabbed with a prop knife. We also get to meet, before the series ends, a rock star towards the end of his career, in what proves to be a terrific episode to close the series.
To reveal any more significant plot points of Lewis would be to spoil half the fun. What this third series retains though is the kind of diligent, well-produced drama that its predecessor was. And in Whately, it has a lead actor who studiously inhabits his role, and ensures that the name of Inspector Lewis is another to add to the British detective hall of fame. Very strong drama, and it’s just getting better. --Jon FosterSee all Product description

Because I am living most of the year in the US, I have a collection of both region 1 and region 2 DVDs. I already owned the pilot and the first 2 collections of Lewis, so, when the third collection appeared in the UK and was not yet available in the US, I purchased it immediately. It arrived promptly, as usual. Except... the episodes in the third collection were already included in the first set I already owned! An unpleasant (and costly) mistake.
Now, I know that the publishing companies make tons of money by issuing a bewildering number of sets offering an equally bewildering number of combinations. What Amazon could do, and often does not, is include a list of titles, or content, in the product review so that the purchasers always know, specifically, what they are getting.
Thank you for your attention.
There are four stories this time. Firstly, a barmaid dies in circumstances matching those in a novel, but all is not as it seems. Then, an actor playing Shylock in a production of Merchant of Venice gets killed, but before anyone can start wondering about whether he was the one who had the pound of flesh taken, other actors start dying. Thirdly, in a convoluted tale, a man is found murdered, but that man himself has a troubled past. Finally, Lewis investigates a rock band and a singer who was supposed to have died many years ago.
This series did mark some major changes, apparently, amongst the production staff, but nothing that appeared on screen would suggest that. All the tales are entertaining and perfect to lose yourself in for an hour and a half. My favourite is the final one with its jokier side that feels different to anything else they've tried so far. Long may Lewis continue to patrol Oxford.
In this series, they deal with altered identities and crimes of retribution. DI Lewis is still having difficulty dealing with his wife's unsolved murder, so this is s 'come to momma' series. DS Lewis is much darker and his life is more complicated than the more frivolous Lewis we knew of yore. The murders in this series are incredibly complex, the stories much more updated and modern. DS Hathaway is from public school and Cambridge, so he seems to fit right in with the characters in these episodes. He smokes, was an athlete and once studied for the priesthood. He is tightly controlled , and he does not reveal much if anything of his background.
DI Lewis and DS Hathaway are the epitome of opposites attract, and they make the best pair of detectives. Masterpiece is known as giving us the best in performances, and once again, they deliver!
Highly Recommended. prisrob 03-17-17
