Laurence Fox as D.S. Hathaway and Kevin Whately as Detective Inspector Robbie Lewis
MASTERPIECETM MYSTERY! continues to bring audiences the best in sleuthing adventures this summer on KUED-Channel 7 Sunday nights at 8 p.m., beginning June 22. Inspector Lewis (Kevin Whately) returns first in the spin-off to the popular "Inspector Morse" series.
Following the tragic death of his wife, Inspector Lewis has been on a two-year assignment in the British Virgin Islands. Now he's back in the familiar territory of Oxfordshire, cracking cases with his sharp young sidekick, DS Hathaway (Laurence Fox, Becoming Jane). An impressive list of guest stars (Gina McKee, Anna Massey and James Wilby) joins Lewis and Hathaway this season as they take on murder mysteries that draw them into the underbelly of celebrity, ambition and the sexual politics of the Oxfordshire elite.
In "Whom the Gods Would Destroy," the series opener on June 22, a middle-aged Oxford graduate is found dead near his run-down houseboat, and Inspector Lewis and DS Hathaway find themselves thrown into a delicate murder case that implicates one of the university's most prominent figures.
On Sunday, June 29, Lewis and Hathaway are called in to investigate the death of an ambitious Oxford student in "Old School Ties," revealing a case driven by celebrity, ambition and dangerous sexual politics.
In other new presentations this summer, Michael Kitchen and Nathaniel Parker resume their roles as Inspectors Foyle and Lynley, respectively. But their return is bittersweet: both characters bid farewell to the airwaves with these miniseries.
