With D.S. Hathaway on holiday, Inspector Lewis is assigned an awkward new partner to investigate the discovery of a recently embalmed body in a field. When the inquiry leads to a funeral home and those connected to it, a disturbing connection to Lewis’ missing former colleague, Superintendent Jack Cornish, comes into sharp relief.
Kevin Whately stars as Inspector Lewis, the former working-class foil to the erudite Detective Inspector Morse, and Laurence Fox stars as his cool, cerebral partner Detective Sergeant Hathaway, in the second all-new mystery of Inspector Lewis, Series VI, The Ramblin' Boy. Peter Davison (Doctor Who) guest stars.
