Inspector Lewis, Season 5: The Indelible Stain

Lonely, I am so lonely. I need somebody to call my own.

A guest lecturer is strangled after being heckled by an anti-racist group, and once again, everyone is a suspect. I'm waiting for Hathaway to commit murder, I really am. Imagine how awesome that episode could be. It might take this show in a whole new direction! Instead of Hathaway always being lonely and flirting with the next female character of the week, he can be a killer hiding his dark secret while being lonely and flirting with the next female character of the week. Yes!

The main gripe I have, as usual, is predictability. From the whole student-screwing-her-professor storyline to the big reveal of who the killer is, none of it shocks. I even guessed who the murderer was fairly early on. Let's be honest; it's never the main suspect. It's always the person they never thought did it in the first place.

My grade: B-
