Inspector Lewis in Dark Matter, Sunday, September 12th, on PBS

Masterpiece Mystery! Inspector Lewis

Tomorrow, Sunday September 12th, the third of five new episodes of Series III of Inspector Lewis airs on PBS (check your local listings for air times).

In "Dark Matter", Oxford professor and amateur stargazer Andrew Crompton emerges from a church confessional, cryptically exclaiming that on Friday at 3:15, he'll have an "excess of joy." Later, Crompton is found dead at the foot of the stairs in the Oxford observatory. The investigation draws Detective Inspector Lewis (Kevin Whately) and Detective Sergeant Hathaway (Laurence Fox) into the ethereal writings of a 17th-century astronomer and a modern-day circle of scientists and musicians, and their unexpected connections to the deceased. The cosmos aside, there's a dark deception at the center of the case, one that Lewis and Hathaway won't be able to fully comprehend until Friday at 3:15.

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

The first two series of Inspector Lewis are available on DVD from Telemystery: Inspector Lewis. This third series will be released on DVD on October 12th, and may be pre-ordered.

  1. Once again I had trouble understanding the Sgt.
    And the nephew was even worse. What was he saying? I had to guess.
    So Mrs. Temple did it because her lover had a brain tumor and was going to tell the wife? Mrs. Temple couldn't give hime up so she argued with him and he fell down the stairs.
    But why did she shoot the doctor?
