Storyline

DI Lewis returns to Oxford after several years absence and is reluctantly assigned by his new boss, DCS Innocent, to the murder of an Oxford mathematics student who was shot while participating in a sleep study. The key-code used to access the sleep lab was assigned to a fellow maths student, Daniel Griffin, but Daniel's math tutor has provided him with an alibi. Daniel is a maladjusted young man who will soon inherit his father's automotive empire. He is disruptive and has no respect for his uncle who now heads the company. The future of the company however rests on an impending deal with Japanese investors who insist that family unity is all important at this time. When two other murders occur, Lewis must decipher a cryptic clue left in an old case file by his former boss, Chief Inspector Morse. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Just after Hathaway collects Lewis at the airport, they are nearly run over by a burgundy Jaguar very similar to the one that Morse used to drive, causing Lewis to think for a second that he is seeing a ghost. This is just one of the many references in this episode to Morse's influence on Lewis. See more »

Goofs

At the reception for the Japanese delegation, Rex toasts the memory of his brother Johnny who was killed in a car crash two years previously. Later on, Lewis discovers that Morse had investigated Danny Griffon for vandalism to Rex's car after Johnny's accident FIVE years ago. See more »

The welcome return of a much missed character.
29 January 2006 | by mikekelly38See all my reviews

A welcome return for Morse's old sidekick, Robbie Lewis. Lewis, played by Kevin Whately, returns from an overseas secondment and steps straight into the case of a female student shot in a sleep investigation unit. The killer used the key-code of a mathematics student (Danny Griffon, played by Charlie Cox)to enter the unit so he rightly becomes the prime suspect. Unfortunately for Lewis and his temporary sergeant James 'God botherer' Hathaway (Laurence Fox), Danny appears to have a cast iron alibi, or does he? I'm not going to give anymore away, as there are many people, in the US and elsewhere who have not yet been privileged to see this subtle and highly polished production. Let's hope Kevin Whately agrees to do more episodes. It was well worth the wait.
