Lewis Series 8
30 “Beyond Good and Evil”
(Originally Aired in UK 7 November 2014)
Thirteen years ago, Lewis successfully apprehended hammer killer Graham Lawrie. Now Lawrie is on the verge of freedom thanks to new evidence. Lewis fears the worst, but nothing can prepare him for a string of murders resembling the original case. With his mentor’s reputation in jeopardy, Hathaway races to catch the killer.
The last of the season and best of the season. This is due to the simplicity of the story. It’s a basic did-he-do-it plot. Was Lewis wrong in his original arrest of Lawrie. Is there someone else and who will die.
Alec Newman plays Graham Lawrie and gives a great portrayal of a psychopathic killer. Hathaway finally gets to show some leadership as Lewis is fading into retirement.
