Lewis, Series 1

UKTV – Mondays from 13 June, 8.30pm

The heavily anticipated detective drama follow-up to the hugely acclaimed Inspector Morse series.

Five years after Morse’s death, Lewis – now promoted to inspector – returns to his old stomping ground of the university city of Oxford after an attachment on the British Virgin Islands. Even before Lewis can get home from the airport, he and his new, much younger colleague Hathaway are diverted by the flashing blue lights and police activity of a murder scene, centred on the death by a single bullet of an American college student. Another student, Danny Griffon, is suspected of being involved – and he had a brush with the law some years previously, investigated by a certain Inspector Morse.

Starring: Kevin Whately (The English Patient; Auf Wiedersehen, Pet), Laurence Fox (Gosford Park; The Hole) and Clare Holman (Prime Suspect 6; The Innocent).
