I was worried when they said they were bringing Lewis back to Oxford, and it didn't help that my video failed to record the pilot.
So I came to this series of 3 with a certain trepidation. I was not disappointed, the first two were very good, very enjoyable detective shows. But not exceptional.
Then I watched this last episode - and it was an excellent detective story. Nothing was as it seemed, nothing, from beginning to end, there was reveal after reveal.
And Lewis, he was becoming more and more like Morse with every turn - the ocasional abrasive techniques, the subverting authority, encouraging his sergeant to do the same, he had certainly learnt from the master.
The comedic moments were rather good too, and Hathaway was a good foil to Lewis, I particularly liked the moment in the school :)
If Lewis is back, so will I.
