Anthony Higgins in 2000s
Season 3, Episode 4
Counter Culture Blues
Inspector Morse, who won some millions of hearts of viewers all aroud the world brought up a good replacement. Robert Lewis is continuing the work of his late chief in 21-st century with a new partner and a new point of view on life.
The idea of renewing once-popular rock group is not new - we constantly see posters of a newly revived group, long ago fallen into oblivion, and the screenwriters took it as a basis for a fictional band, whose singer had committed suicide many years ago. The sudden appearance and resurrection of aging sexy blonde in Oxford is accompanied by new murders, which are charged with investigating by the best inspector of the Police Thames Valley, Robert Lewis.
Franco, an axeman for the resurgent band, is an alcoholic, a schemer, a victim. I sincerely believe that this is the most successful of Mr. Higgins' role for the last years. To play, to sing, to read a monologue, to be engaged in a dialogue, and, if it is necessary, to fall into a muddy swamp - he still can do it, moreover, in such a magnificent acting ensemble.

P.S. How do you like Keith Richards-style make up? Cool!
P.S.P.F. Simon Callow, familiar to spectators for the "Four Weddings and a Funeral", once starred in "Inspector Morse", so it is more fun to see his appearance in "Lewis" in the role of the treacherous producer.
