Lewis Series Eight Details Revealed

by | Mar 20, 2014 | All, TV News

It was revealed earlier in the year that Lawrence Fox and Kevin Whately will be reprising their roles in a new series of Lewis. Now ITV has released further details on the new dynamic that will run throughout this eighth series.

Hathaway (Lawrence Fox) has been promoted to Inspector but fails to find the chemistry he had with Lewis with any other officer. So Lewis (Kevin Whately) comes out of retirement to reform the partnership that has been so successful over the years.

Angela Griffin joins the cast as career copper DS Lizzie Maddox. It’s been a slow route to sergeant, but Lizzie loves her work, and has ambitions to be an inspector.  She is an expert multi-tasker and fierce when she wants to be.  Married to childhood sweetheart, Tony, Lizzie’s home is her haven and she is very much commander-in-chief in the relationship. In her police work, she’s staunch, practical, hard working, and has an easy rapport with everyone she meets.  

The first of the new films ‘Exit Wounds’ will guest star Kara Tointon as  Erica the naturally glamorous wife of murdered neurosurgeon, Alastair Stoke.  Could she have murdered her husband? Lewis and Hathaway are called to investigate…..

Lewis returns next year
