An ITV spokeswoman has confirmed the seventh series of Lewis won’t be the last.

The final episode of the series, which is filmed in the county, aired on Monday.

ITV spokeswoman Kate Bain said the detective show’s star Kevin Whately, pictured, would take a break from filming this year.

But Ms Bain added: “We are hoping to film in 2014, whether that is another series or a one-off.”

The final scene of Lewis on Monday mimicked the last scene of its predecessor Inspector Morse – both of which were filmed in the beer garden at The Victoria Arms in Old Marston.
