I didn’t watch the Inspector Lewis series when it first ran, but now I’m watching all of them on my Roku. I did see a couple of *Endeavour *and liked those. Looking forward very much to the Inspector Morse series.
I love the Oxford* setting, the slow pace, the lack of (or at least minimal) “action,” and violence. I like the relationships among the characters and the absence of loud shocking effects calculated to make you jump out of your chair or gag or both. The cerebral dialogue with literary references really appeals to me, too.
I was trying to think of any comparable American shows, but the only one I could think of was Monk.
Can anyone think of any kinder, gentler, police/crime/detective shows?
*The *per capita *body count in Oxford is approaching that of Cabot Cove, Maine.
