Inspector Lewis Returns

On the Chairman of the Board’s birthday, 6 July 08, Masterpiece Mystery! “Inspector Lewis, Series I ‘Expiation’” premieres from 9 to 10:30 p.m.

“Inspector Lewis, Series I”--Kevin Whately returns as Detective Inspector Robbie Lewis in the spin-off to the popular “Inspector Morse” series. Lewis, back in Oxford following the tragic death of his wife, is cracking cases with his sharp young sidekick, DS Hathaway (Laurence Fox, Becoming Jane). An impressive list of guest stars (Gina McKee, Anna Massey and James Wilby) joins Lewis and Hathaway this season as they take on murder mysteries that draw them into the underbelly of celebrity, ambition and the sexual politics of the Oxfordshire elite. “Expiation”--When an Oxford housewife is found hanged in her home, Lewis and Hathaway unearth a far darker murder case than the initial suicide verdict suggests. Hosted by Alan Cumming.
