He's hinted at this before, has said a bunch of times that he didn't want Lewis to have more episodes than Morse, so partners_r_more and I figured there might only be a few more seasons. But really--Lewis has got to be quite a few years younger than KW, if you go by stuff in Morse (i.e, the apprximate ages of his children) and the fact that Val was born in '58. (I estimated that Lewis was a year older than his wife, but even if you up that by 3 years or so, he's still younger that Kevin, who is 4 years from retirement age.) ETA: From what he said in the vid, apparently police retirement age there must be 60-61, since he'll be 61 next month.

So there, Kevin! *g* Morse had 33 episodes. Lewis currently has (or soon will have aired) 24. At 4 eps a season, that's 2 more seasons, at which point Lewis can still retire early.

And while there are, I'm sure, a whole bunch of people who would watch "Inspector Hathaway," I don't think Hathaway would hold my interest without the relationship with Lewis (assuming Laurence Fox would even consider a follow-up series).

And now that that's off my chest, time to go do my taxes. ;-)

I'll wait and see, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised if Lewis came to an end anytime in the next couple of years - much as I don't want it to!

It's also quite possible that he's in the middle of negotiating whether to do a seventh series right now, and that could definitely affect the way in which he chose to answer that question. *crosses fingers*

I wondered about that - whether when he said there'd definitely be a series "next year" meant 2013, or just "next series", which is already in the can and airs in April. I'm surprised he wouldn't have committed to S7 by now, since they usually start filming in what, May? You'd think they'd need at least that much notice to gear up in preproduction.

Yeah, that's very true, though there might still be *just* enough time to factor in the pre-production. It all just really comes down to why he's phrasing it that way. It's possible that series 6 will be the final series, and that will become clear in the storyline of the final episode, so they don't want to say anything until closer to whenit airs. I will continue to grasp at other explanations until I can't, though. *g*

If he knows there may not be a lot of future opportunities, bets on whether Laurence Fox *won't* try to sneak a kiss into a scene somewhere? *g*

KW actually said the exact same thing to The Oxford Times two or three years ago. I can't help wondering if he's angling for a pay rise ;) Seriously, he did say exactly the same. Haven't got link, sorry. Had paper copy!

He meant there would be at least a S7, and after that "we'll see."

Hey, sweetie--were you able to see the actual video? Email me, if not.
