Kevin Whately returns as Inspector Lewis for a second season. The much loved Oxford policeman is once again joined by Laurence Fox (A Room with a View) as Lewis' young partner DS Hathaway. And as the relationship between Inspector and Sergeant grows and develops we see new sides to the inimitable duo. Stolen rare books and the murders of a brilliant Oxford Fine Art student and a library maintenance engineer lead Lewis and Hathaway to connect the crimes to a local gambling addiction group and two talented painters. Can Oxford's finest trace killers before they claim their next victim?
