Up first is one of my favorites, Inspector Lewis. Some of the notable guest stars in Season 7 are Peter Davison and Edward Fox, uncle of Lawrence Fox, who plays DS Hathaway.

Next up is a new series called Endeavor, a prequel to Inspector Morse, which spun-off the Inspector Lewis series. The series is set in the swinging 1960s with Shaun Evans playing a young Endeavor Morse, before he became Inspector Morse. I'm excited to watch this show because I really enjoy the Morse/Lewis universe, and I'm also looking forward to the 60's style.
Tuppence Middleton, who can also be seen in an episode of this summer's Inspector Lewis, also headlines a new adaptation of The Lady Vanishes. I am a big fan of the 1938 Hitchcock-directed film, and am looking forward to this as well. It also co-stars Gemma Jones, Keeley Hawes and Stephanie Cole.
A modern legal drama follows called Silk. Not sure I'm going to watch this as I'm not a huge fan of shows about law and lawyers, although I did watch my fair share of L.A. Law back in the day. Silk stars Maxine Peake and Rupert Penry-Jones.
This summer's Masterpiece Mystery season winds up with the charming Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks in Foyle's War. Co-stars include Tamzin Outhwaite.
