Inspector Lewis - Pilot and Series 1 available in DVD
Inspector Robert Lewis (Kevin Whately) is back in Oxford, England, five years after the death of his long-time partner, the legendary Inspector Morse (John Thaw). As he works to rebuild his life following the death of his wife, he has to confront his past and his future. Together with his younger sidekick, the cool, cerebral Detective Sergeant James Hathaway (Laurence Fox), Lewis is bent on proving himself to his dubious new boss. The pilot aired in 2006, and Series 1 aired in 2007 on the U. K.'s ITV.

This is a great sequel to the Inspector Morse series. It's interesting to see how Lewis has aged and how he has (and has not) grown to be more like Morse.
Sgt. Lewis, a little worse for wear, continues the sleuthing in Oxford with his new sargent, Hathaway. This continuation of the Oxford mysteries is well done, and a fine addition to my Anglophile dectectives on DVD I believe, as I did with the MORSE series, these stories are 5 STAR. You cannot go wrong adding this series, and the next to your DVD collection.
This series is so well written and filmed that you feel like you are part of the story. Whately and Fox are real and engaging - excellent type casting. Also it is a look in British culture and human nature. I will be buying more of the series as waiting for PBS to run it is not enough.
