Kevin Whately returns for a sixth season as Inspector Lewis. He and his young partner DS Hathaway (Laurence Fox) continue solving cases in the seemingly perfect academic haven of Oxford. With DS Hathaway on holiday, Inspector Lewis is assigned a new partner to investigate the discovery of an elderly man's body in a field. Finding that the man had already been embalmed, the inquiry leads to a funeral home and those connected to it, including one of Lewis' former colleagues. Peter Davison ("Doctor Who") guest stars.
