ITV commissions a new series of Lewis starring Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox from ITV Studios
I can’t decide if I’m pleased about this. On the one hand, obviously… YAHEY!
On the other… both actors had expressed quite strongly that they felt they’d been doing it too long and wanted to do other things. Fox has been in a couple of moderately-received plays in the West End; I haven’t seen Whately in anything else. It’s been less than a year since the series “ended”. We haven’t even had time to miss it yet. Maybe sometimes it’s best to go out on a high note, when it’s still good, and not just keep on doing one more farewell tour, like a low-rent Frank Sinatra sponsored by Viking Cruises.
I missed it!
Seriously, I think it’s great they’re doing another series. And I secretly hope that after the very last ep of Lewis, there will be a brand new ‘Inspector Hathaway’ series. I love the whole Endeavour/Morse/Lewis universe, and I’m pretty certain Laurence Fox could carry his very own series.
I’ve actually read a lot of Sapolsky’s work. He’s one of my favorite scientists in the neuro/socio world.
Bloody hell. This is awesome stuff. Has anyone else read The Gate To Women’s Country by Sheri Tepper? I still think that was a great solution: prevent the aggressive males from reproducing, only allow (for lack of a better word) the good guys’— sensitive men’s—genes to stay in the gene pool. Totally works for me.
This is great. This is how women can save the earth. Love the good guys. Let them make all the babies.
