"INSPECTOR LEWIS 4"
- Old Unhappy Far Off Things - Oxford's last surviving all-female college is bidding farewell to one of its most prominent professors, and a leading light in the feminist movement - but not before Lewis and Hathaway are called in to investigate two murders that may be linked to the college and its decade-old secrets.
- Wild Justice - In the run-up to an election at Oxford's prestigious St. Gerard's Hall, the college is shocked by a string of brutal murders - someone seems to be picking off the candidates one-by-one. As Lewis and Hathaway investigate further, they become embroiled in a revenge tragedy, which began thirty years ago.
- The Mind Has Mountains - When a student dies during a controversial clinical trial for a new anti-depressant drug, is it murder or suicide? And as the body count rises, Lewis and Hathaway uncover a web of lies, jealousy, and madness - to which Lewis himself could fall victim.
- The Gift of Promise - Lewis and Hathaway are called in when local businesswoman Andrea de Ritter is brutally bludgeoned to death in an apparent blackmail plot gone wrong. But if that's true, why is MI5 involved - and why won't they help?
is presented on PBS by WGBH Boston. Rebecca Eaton is executive producer. Funding for the series is provided by public television viewers with additional support from contributors to The MASTERPIECE
Trust, created to help ensure the series' future.
