There is more in the Universe than can ever be contemplated in the philosophy of a Detective Inspector in rural England, however the only thing alien about the county of Midsomer is that the murderer always believes that the bigger the elaborate death, the chances of them getting away with it; for that Inspector John Barnaby has both feet firmly planted in the real and on planet Earth.

The streets of Oxford will be poorer for the fact that Lewis, one of the true greats of British Crime Drama, has been allowed to finish before its time. Robbie Lewis, a man taught by the best that the dreaming spires of Oxford could wish to have investigating its murders and foul deeds, a man to whom honour was all and a man who came back after riding into the sunset, this was a man with a past so knotted in the streets of Oxford that to lose him, the audiences might find themselves bereft and asking What Lies Tangled?

To forgive is divine…or so it is believed, but to truly love yourself, to not be crushed everyday by the stirrings of self hatred for any act of stupidity that may be caused by a moment of madness or reckless abandon, sometimes for peace of mind you have to let it go.
