Kevin Whately returns as Detective Inspector Robbie Lewis in the spin-off to the popular INSPECTOR MORSE series. Lewis is back in Oxford following the tragic death of his wife and cracking cases with his sharp young sidekick, DS Hathaway (Laurence Fox, "Becoming Jane").
Lewis and Hathaway take on murder mysteries that draw them into the underbelly of celebrity, ambition and sexual politics of the Oxfordshire elite. When a North Oxford housewife, Rachel Mallory, is found hanged at home, it appears to be an open and shut case of suicide. However, the lack of a note and the fact that Rachel's life seemed perfect makes Lewis skeptical.
