Behind-the-Scenes Video

Kevin Whately, Laurence Fox and a stellar line up of guest stars talk about the new season of "Inspector Lewis." Watch now

Kevin Whately returns as Inspector Lewis in a third season of the popular detective series. In five new episodes, Lewis and his young partner, Detective Sergeant Hathaway (Laurence Fox, "A Room With a View"), continue solving cases in the seemingly perfect academic haven of Oxford.

In this episode, Oxford professor and amateur stargazer Andrew Crompton emerges from a church confessional, cryptically exclaiming that on Friday at 3:15, he'll have an "excess of joy." Later, Crompton is found dead at the foot of the stairs in the Oxford observatory.

The investigation draws Detective Inspector Lewis and Detective Sergeant Hathaway into the ethereal writings of a 17th-century astronomer and a modern-day circle of scientists and musicians, and their unexpected connections to the deceased. The cosmos aside, there's a dark deception at the center of the case, one that Lewis and Hathaway won't be able to fully comprehend until Friday at 3:15.
