Lewis 2.01 And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea (2008, ITV) – 7/10

Lewis 2.01 And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea (2008)

A library worker at the Bodlington and a much-liked student are murdered and, as Lewis and Hathaway quickly realise, the probability of two such deaths being unrelated are slim.

7/10

Kevin Whately’s Lewis is notably less sour in this first episode of the second series and this helps make this an entirely agreeable stroll through telly murder mystery land. Alan Plater supplies interesting characters and plenty of plot to add to the good acting and enchantingly rarefied atmosphere which has been largely retained from wonderful parent series Inspector Morse.

This Lewis episode contains mild adult dialogue, mild swear words and substance abuse and mild unpleasant crime scenes.
