Inspector Lewis is back – all new eps start this Sunday!

From PBS:

Kevin Whately returns as Inspector Lewis in a third season of the popular detective series. In five new episodes, Lewis and his young partner, Detective Sergeant Hathaway (Laurence Fox, A Room With a View), continue solving cases in the seemingly perfect academic haven of Oxford.

In the first episode, “Counter Culture Blues,” rock star Esme Ford (who Lewis once admired) isn’t dead after all. But a teenage boy is, and there seems to be a connection to Ford’s old band. Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous) guest stars. (One episode; 90 minutes; TV-PG).

I love this series, I really do. Smart mysteries, the best detective duo on TV, and oh so British. I actually had a chance to preview this episode and it’s a good one. Definitely tune in!

You can watch a preview here.

(And if you were wondering, Lewis is a spin-off of the Inspector Morse series, itself an adaptation of the books by Colin Dexter.)
