5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling Viewing Oct. 6 2013
Following what was most likely the last ever episode of Lewis, this is the DVD set we have all been waiting for. It contains all 27 episodes in the six seasons of Inspector Lewis including the original pilot. Do not be misled by the Amazon description which at the time of writing states a running time of 430 minutes - I presume it will be corrected in due course. In fact these 14 discs run to no less than 2,430 minutes, which is enough to keep us all absorbed for some time! Most importantly these are stated to be the full length UK edition - there has been much criticism of cuts made for the North American releases of some of the Lewis DVD sets in the past.

It is hard to believe that the pilot show was broadcast as recently as 2006, as it seems that Inspector Lewis has been part of our viewing lives for so much longer. I think this is to a large extent, because the character of Lewis first appeared in Morse as long ago as 1986 and has been played by Kevin Whately throughout. Few would have imagined initially that Inspector Lewis would be as successful as Morse, but it has certainly achieved at least as much as that series. Just as the chemistry between Sergeant Lewis, as he was then, and Morse (John Thaw) was a defining strength in that show, the bond between Lewis and DS James Hathaway (Laurence Fox) has increased with time and has been one of the main strengths of Inspector Lewis.

To my mind the other factor which has made Lewis such a success is the excellent script writing. The stories are varied and complex. This is not the sort of drama which you are going to be able to watch with one eye on something else and still pick up all the detail of the plot, as you can with much of what is shown on TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oxford Mysteries at their Best March 29 2014
All the episodes featuring DI Lewis and his enigmatic partner DS Hathaway in one box, from the Pilot, which saw Lewis' return to Oxford from a posting in the Caribbean, to the latest episode contemplating his retirement. As always, the star is the beautiful city of Oxford, where murder, duplicity, mayhem and academic machinations run rife. The plots are comfortably complex, and you will enjoy taking the journey with Lewis and Hathaway as they solve the crimes. As an added bonus to North American viewers, this box set includes the full episodes of Series 1 and 2, which contain 7 to 9 minutes of additional footage which were not seen when the series were broadcast on television in North America, which makes the episode "The Great and the Good" much clearer. My favourite episode is "And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea" with poetry by Shelley, a body in the Bodleian library and an artist with such an eye. The guest stars in the episodes are all excellent actors - look for the actors who have also been in Inspector Morse! The set also comes with a bonus "Making Of" episode with interviews with the four main actors from "Inspector Lewis" which gives us a great view of the behind the scenes activities, and an interview with Colin Dexter, the author who started it all. I am enjoying this box set and am looking forward to watching the episodes again.

This is one the best British detective shows out there.
It comes out of the Inspector Morse series when Lewis
was his sidekick and follows Lewis to where he has a
sidekick: Hathaway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspector Lewis- Pilot through series 6 Feb. 11 2014
Verified Purchase
Anyone who loved the Morse series on tv will love this set. Lewis has aged well and has a sidekick in the style of a younger Morse actually. Super sets and acting.

I enjoyed this as much as the Inspector Morse. Like a seamless continuation of the Morse episodes. Looking forward to more.
