Lewis 8

The arrival of new Chief Superintendent Joe Moody heralds a fresh dawn for Oxfordshire Police, although the high flyer soon clashes with Lewis over the latter’s more traditional approach to detective work. With Hobson contemplating a round-world trip to witness the birth of her niece’s baby, and the new boss piling on the pressure, will Robbie finally decide to call time on his policing career?

Meanwhile, Hathaway is forced to confront his past when his father is moved into a care home suffering from dementia. After years of avoiding the thorny issue of family ties, has James left it too late to be reunited with the man his father once was?
