About the Show

2009

Kevin Whately (The English Patient) stars as Inspector Lewis, the former working-class foil to the erudite Detective Inspector Morse. Together with his cool, cerebral partner Detective Sergeant Hathaway (Laurence Fox, Gosford Park), Lewis tackles murder and mayhem in the seemingly-perfect academic haven of Oxford. In a partnership forged through loyalty and mutual–though often grudging–respect, Robbie Lewis untangles lies and murky motives with his combination of instinct and experience while James Hathaway, with his wit as sharp as his reason, handles suspects and classical allusions with the same deft intellect. Together, they struggle with procedural dilemmas and existential questions about their futures–on the force and in their personal lives.
