Encore Presentations of Inspector Lewis Series II Begin Sunday, August 8th, on PBS

Masterpiece Mystery! Inspector Lewis

On August 29th, the first of seven new episodes comprising Series III of Inspector Lewis airs on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery! For the next three Sundays, you're invited to enjoy encore presentations of episodes from last year's Series II.

Tomorrow, Sunday August 8th (check your local listings), the episode titled "Allegory of Love" airs. Young and handsome Oxford writer Dorian Crane is following in the noted fantasy footsteps of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien with his newest book. The day after Crane's book launch party, reality shatters the celebratory mood when a young Czech barmaid is found dead by the river, savagely murdered with an antique Persian mirror. Some of the grisly circumstances seem to have been lifted from Crane's fiction. But the celebrated author claims no knowledge of the crime, instead fawning over his bride-to-be and muse Alice Wishart. At the murder scene, Lewis and Hathaway find a one-word note scrawled in blood that references a place in Iraq. As a result, DI Lewis (Kevin Whately) and DS Hathaway (Laurence Fox) [of the Thames Valley Police] get pulled into the world of Oxford's literary elite, only to find that it harbors resentment and jealousy and at its center, holds terrible secrets beyond all imagination.

Inspector Lewis is a spin-off of the long-running Inspector Morse mysteries, based on characters created by crime novelist Colin Dexter.

Inspector Lewis: Series Two is also available on DVD from Telemystery.
