Lewis and Hathaway -the priest and the atheist-but it works!
The main characters are realistic and multi dimensional. Because of this the murder investigations and surrounding stories are believable, even inevitable. I greatly enjoy the interaction between Lewis and Hathaway, their odd habits and vices. Their banter can be quite humorous. As a viewer the murderer and motive are not easily determined and I’m invariably astonished by the revelation of the murderer’s identity and motives when all ends are tied together while at the same time it makes perfect sense. The script writing is at the highest level of craftsmanship both in dialogue and innovative plot design. The only characteristic that doesn’t ring true for me is Hathaway’s faith. It seems to me that a man of his intelligence, natural curiosity and detective skills would have figured out by now that religion and theism are highly flawed and improbable. Hathaway may need a few more years of ripening and murder investigations like Lewis has had, to fully appreciate that at its core his character is an atheist.
Hasn`t lost anything.
"Lewis" continues to impress me with its well written episodes, great character development, and the manner with which the writers provide us with small glimpses into the characters` pasts.
I usually don`t comment on other reviews but one thing struck me, the comment on Hathaway`s faith. I agree, it is hard to associate the character Hathaway with all that he is and with his past. I feel the show has been slowly pointing out, over the series, that his intelligence led him to question what he was doing and led him to the point he is at. He has questioned not only his past but also his present at times and while he seems to have reached a conclusion about his present, why he reached a conclusion about his religion has yet to be adequately explained. It feels like his character is reluctant to go there right now (it will make a great story when he does!).
I`ll conclude with this, I think Hathaway hasn`t questioned his faith but has questioned his religion. That was hinted at in an episode or two.
Still a great series and two well crafted and acted characters!
