The BBC is planning the broadcast of the last two episodes of The Inspector Lynley Mysteries from August 9th, 2007. The first episode "Limbo" will be shown on BBC One from 20:00 to 21:30 (GMT). The confirmed date for the second and final episode called "Know Thine Enemy" is August 16th also from 20:00 to 21:30 (GMT).

As far as we can tell this sixth series about upper-crust DI Thomas Lynley and working class DS Barbara Havers might be the last one. Here's a short synopsis: Old wounds are reopened when Lynley investigates the disturbing death of his godson more than a decade after the boy's disappearance. Lynley is drawn into the case, leading him first to Rome and then headlong into the middle of a new murder inquiry in which Lynley himself becomes the prime suspect. Will Havers be able to save his skin? You can read a detailed review right here, please mind that there will definitely be spoilers!

Know Thine Enemy the second episode is all about a dramatic abduction case. Lynley and Havers's friendship is pushed to its limits in a high profile and chilling investigation into the disappearance of two teenage girls. Can Lynley save the life of the second victim and pin a murder charge on his suspects? You might want to read more details about this episode right here, but be warned there are spoilers!
