Inspector Lewis in The Point of Vanishing, Sunday August 22nd on PBS

Masterpiece Mystery! Inspector Lewis

Tomorrow, Sunday August 22nd, the last of three encore episodes from Series II of Inspector Lewis airs on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery! Next week, the premiere episode of five new episodes of the third series airs.

In an episode titled "The Point of Vanishing" (check your local listings for times) a man, Steven Mullan, is found dead in his bathtub, the scalding water indicative of the white-hot rage that motivated the murder. Lewis recognizes Mullan as having been recently released from prison after having tried to kill celebrity atheist Tom Rattenbury while driving drunk. Mullan's sentence may be over, but have the scars healed for the Rattenburys, especially daughter Jessica who remains in a wheelchair from the incident? Lewis and Hathaway find a postcard at the crime scene of a Renaissance painting inscribed with the words, "It was no dream." But the case is about to take a surreal, dream-like twist, leaving Lewis and Hathaway drowning in questions about crimes of the past and the present.

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.
