Masterpiece Mystery Inspector Lewis Preview: Music to Die For Airs Sunday

The second season of the Inspector Lewis mysteries continues with ‘Music to Die For’ tomorrow, September 06, 2009, 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm ET on PBS. Here is a brief description from the Masterpiece Mystery website.

An elite Oxford lecturer gets in a drunken brawl at an exclusive club, and is later found strangled by a strip of boxer's hand tape. Richard Helm, his old friend with him that night, seems suitably grieved — but is he guilty? Lewis and Hathaway become immersed in the brutal world of bare-knuckle boxing as they comb Oxford for the killer. One boxing student in particular has unexplained injuries and pent up rage, but is he angry enough to kill his own tutor? From the epic operas of Wagner to Cold War intrigue and buried secrets, the case swells to a heart-pounding crescendo, along the way invoking the memory of Chief Inspector Morse.

Watch last week’s episode 'And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea' online through Sunday, September 13, 2009, eastern time

This is one of my favorite series in the Masterpiece Mystery lineup this season from PBS. It is smart, reflective, and features excellent casting. I hope you enjoy it also.

Cheers, Laurel Ann, Austenprose

I do miss Inspector Morse. Masterpiece Theater lost 3 of their stars in a short period of time (the actors for Morse, Holmes, and Miss Marple). They were the best representations of these characters so far. Inspector Lewis has stepped forward and his character has taken over nicely. I'm adjusting to the new Miss Marple, but feel the last actress was a more perfect fit.
I always look forward to Masterpiece Theater. Excellent TV.

Watched Inspector Lewis tonight. Excellent as usual. Just enough information to keep you guessing.
