Kevin Whately returns as Inspector Lewis for a fifth season of the popular detective series. In four new episodes, Lewis and his young partner DS Hathaway (Laurence Fox, MASTERPIECE CLASSIC “A Room With a View”) continue solving cases in the seemingly perfect academic haven of Oxford.
This week’s episode is the first of the fifth series. When the body of an obsessive Oxford English professor is discovered ritually buried, Lewis and Hathaway are set upon a seemingly impossible quest to uncover the truth. The detectives soon find that multiple riddles are in need of solving —from an intellectual rivalry with the professor’s brother to an amateur detective’s incessant meddling. Guest stars James Fleet (“Little Dorrit”) and Celia Imrie (“Cranford”).
