Lewis: Series 8 - UK Region
DVD Wholesale Quick Overview:
Lewis is a British television detective drama produced for ITV. It is a spin-off from Inspector Morse and, like that series, it is set in Oxford. Kevin Whately reprises his character Robert "Robbie" Lewis, who was Morse's sergeant in the original series. Lewis has now been promoted to detective inspector and is assisted by DS James Hathaway, portrayed by Laurence Fox, who became promoted to inspector in the eighth series airing in 2014. The series also stars Clare Holman as forensic pathologist Dr Laura Hobson, likewise reprising her role from Inspector Morse, and Angela Griffin as DS Lizzie Maddox.
On 2 November 2015, ITV announced that the show would end after its ninth series, following the decision made by Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox to retire from their roles in the series. Whately announced that the show had gone on long enough, with his character having done many stories between Morse and Lewis after he took on the role 30 years ago.
Kevin Whately stars as Detective Inspector Robbie Lewis, ably assisted by Laurence Fox as the recently promoted DI James Hathaway and Angela Griffin as new recruit DS Lizzie Maddox.
Together they investigate murder mysteries against the glorious backdrop of Oxford and its historic colleges.
Clare Holman returns as Dr Laura Hobson, alongside Rebecca Front as Chief Superintendent Innocent.
