Series Overview
The arrival of new Chief Superintendent Joe Moody heralds a fresh dawn for Oxfordshire Police, although the high flyer soon clashes with Lewis over the latter’s more traditional approach to detective work. With Hobson contemplating a round-world trip to witness the birth of her niece's baby, and the new boss piling on the pressure, will Robbie finally decide to call time on his policing career?
Meanwhile, Hathaway is forced to confront his past when his father is moved into a care home suffering from dementia. After years of avoiding the thorny issue of family ties, has James left it too late to be reunited with the man his father once was?
Episode 2 - One For Sorrow (part 2 of 2)
Faced with a seemingly impossible task of identifying the remains of a body discovered in a well, Lewis has also got to contend with a new boss, Chief Superintendent Moody. The new chief is dubious as to Lewis' motivation for coming out of retirement. Feeling not only unwanted but also under the microscope Lewis needs to solve the case in the hope of proving his worth. 
Hathaway meanwhile is dealing with his own difficult situation as his estranged father, suffering with dementia, is placed into a care home. Going through his father's belongings he realises that his dad, though absent from his son's life, took an interest in him. This revelation causes Hathaway to feel tremendous guilt and in an attempt to avoid facing his father and his personal strife, Hathaway throws himself into his work. 
Whilst the police are looking into the body in the well, it is the start of an exciting time for young avant-garde artist Talika Desai. An exhibition of her artwork, which heavily features anthropomorphic taxidermy, is opened, but the very next day her body is discovered. On first glance it looks like a tragic drugs overdose, but Hathaway and Lewis quickly recognise the tell tale signs of murder. 
The resulting investigation takes Lewis, Hathaway and Maddox into the complex and murky worlds of social media, drugs, taxidermy, alternative art, the homeless East European community and even to the picturesque spires of the Oxford colleges.
