Pipe "Lewis" features Lewis!

Apparently tonight's new episode of Lewis (ITV at 9pm), always worth watching anyway for the Oxford scenery if not the decent plots, is about a murder involving a fantasy writer "Following in the literary footsteps of Tolkien...", and has lot of dons who quote extensively from CS Lewis and Lewis Carroll apparently.

Thought I'd flag this one up for anyone else in the UK as I know some of you like it too.

Invariably the suspects are Oxford academics who, in this first episode, quote extensively from CS Lewis and Lewis Carroll (see what they did there, with the name "Lewis"?).............It's a typically leisurely puzzle that leads Lewis and Hathaway into the world of fantasy literature. Guests include Fox's dad James as a wonderfully sneery professor.

Still giggle about the episode I talked about here

Only think is my sister who sneered at everything to do with Tolkien since I ten until she became a rather mature Leggy bopper was convinced it was true and refused to bow to my superior knowledge of my "chosen specialist subject". But then she is one of those "Instant Expert" type people ...
