US gets Lewis on DVD first?
The Inspector Morse spin-off Lewis was broadcast in America during July, six months after its UK debut screening on ITV. However, it seems the US is getting the chance to buy Lewis on DVD before British consumers. Amazon.com is listing a September 12 release for the Region 1 DVD, featuring the rather nifty cover shown above. The Region 2 release has been postponed several times and is now scheduled for Janary 2007. Lewis was a ratings success for ITV in January and there was talk of commissioning four more murder mysteries for the character to solve, but all has been quiet since February. Anybody out there know what's happening with Lewis?
