Recommendation of the Week

Inspector Lewis

On Sunday nights from 9-10:30, PBS has been showing the BBC import Inspector Lewis as part of its Masterpiece Theater series. Set in Oxford, England, it's a procedural crime drama with a literary twist. Inspector Lewis is an older, seasoned, traditional detective; his sidekick is a younger sergeant who studied at Cambridge before joining the police force-a fact that comes in handy for cases that usually have some kind of academic twist involving students and professors at Oxford. There's something about the combination of the mystery, the banter between the two investigators, the literary references, and the beautiful shots of the Oxford campus that make this a great Sunday winding-down time show for me.
