Review

In this 2015 episode, Lewis’s new boss, the sharp-suited fast-tracker who replaced cosy Chief Superintendent Jean Innocent, is annoying Robbie, our dependable old-timer. He feels surplus to requirements in this modern world – but then hasn’t he always? – and bridles when the boss insists upon being called “Joe” and not “sir”.

But never mind, who needs modern thinking when Lewis sees through all the flummery and knows how to catch a killer. His brain still ticks over nicely and he even gets a bit philosophical when he announces: “Life’s just a series of moments, that’s all there is.” Crikey!

Lewis is drawn once more very uncomfortably into the world of modern art as he investigates the death of a taxidermist.

Summary

Part two of two. Despite encountering suspicion from new Chief Superintendent Joe Moody, it seems Lewis's decision to come out of retirement could not have come at a better moment for Oxfordshire Police. The murder of the young avant-garde artist Talika Desai is linked to the unidentified human remains discovered in the well, and the subsequent investigation takes Lewis, Hathaway and the team deep into a world of drugs, social media, alternative art and the growing Eastern European homeless community. Crime drama, starring Kevin Whately, Laurence Fox and Steve Toussaint.
