Inspector Lewis Series I: Expiation

Airing Sunday, August 23, 2009 on PBS   Check local listings

When an Oxford "soccer mom" is found hanged in her home following a visit from a mysterious stranger, Lewis and Hathaway uncover a web of family and sexual intrigue that convince them the initial suicide verdict may not tell the whole story. A renowned professor, near death and plagued by his own terrible secret, claims to hold the key that will unlock the mystery, but first he wants something from Lewis and Hathaway. As time passes and tension mounts, the partners worry that they may be staking the outcome of the case on a conversation between a dying man and a terminally damaged one. James Wilby (Gosford Park, Island at War) plays the grieving widower with something to hide.
