Can it really be four years since I first mentioned Lewis, the show I’ve come to think of as the continuation of Morse by other means? Well, it’s a bit more than that, actually. Following the pilot, three more episodes were made and since then we’ve been treated to four “two hour” stories every year – the fourth series was on recently.
I’ve watched and enjoyed every twist and turn, and on a recent wander into HMV, I spotted this box set of the first three series for a quite reasonable £30 – that’s all twelve episodes, including the pilot. There’s a bonus disc attached to the first series with a short behind the scenes documentary, but other than that, this is a no-frills, extras-free set. But it’s good value, and watching all the episodes again was a pleasure. As of today, Amazon are offering the set for an even more reasonable price.
If you like a good detective story, with quite insane levels of brutal murder set in Oxford, you’ll love these!
 This being on ITV, two hours means more like 90 minutes, but we’ll let that pass
