The Ramblin' Boy - Part One

Series 7 - Episode 3 The Ramblin' Boy - Part One



Lewis is alone and palely loitering by the river, bereft of his sidekick Hathaway, who has gone to build an orphanage in Pristina. He is preoccupied, too, by the fate of another policeman friend, who’s left his wife and children for another woman. All the while Lewis is fondly observed by devoted Laura, the comely pathologist. We know they are the Burton and Taylor of TV crime dramas; now if they would just grab each other and fall headlong into passion, that would be lovely.

But not just yet. First Lewis (Kevin Whately), with the help of new sidekick DC Gray (Babou Ceesay), investigates mysterious and rum goings-on at an undertaker’s after a man’s embalmed body is found in woods.


Part one of two. Chief Superintendent Jack Cornish goes missing and a recently embalmed body is discovered near an isolated farm track - could there be a link? As Hathaway goes on sabbatical in Kosovo, Lewis takes an awkward young constable under his wing to investigate the case. Guest starring Lucy Speed and Peter Davison, with Kevin Whately and Babou Ceesay.
