Lewis was raised in Bedwas, Monmouthshire, where he was educated at Bassaleg School. He then attended the University of St Andrews (MA) before studying further at Magdalen College, Oxford (MLitt). He became a Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford, in 1984.
Lewis has also written books on Laurence Olivier, Peter Sellers and the Carry On actor Charles Hawtrey (Charles Hawtrey: the man who was Private Widdle, 2001).
In 2014 comments Lewis made in a Spectator article led to publishers Biteback Publishing withdrawing an offer of a book deal. In his review of a Dusty Springfield biography Lewis had said: "Call me a crazy old physiognomist, but my theory is that you can always spot a lesbian by her big thrusting chin. Celebrity Eskimo Sandi Toksvig, Ellen DeGeneres, Jodie Foster, Clare Balding, Vita Sackville-West, God love them: there's a touch of Desperate Dan in the jaw-bone area, no doubt the better to go bobbing for apples."
