Storyline

Albert Campion --a bespectacled aristocrat of many pseudonyms, who moves amongst the high class as easily as the the crime underworld-- loves detection and adventure. Aided by his burglar-turned-manservant Magersfontein Lugg, and his policeman friend Stanislaus Oates, Campion unravels eight mysteries over the course of the series. Set in the 1930s, the series is based upon the works of English crime writer Margery Allingham. Written by L. Hamre

A classic BBC English sleuth production
29 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think the other reviews cover the lion's share of what there is to say, but just a few comments:

  • As of this writing, "Campion" is available on streaming Netflix,


unabridged and with no commercials.

  • I love the opening and closing theme music, especially from the first


season. I am not sure why they changed it up for the second season.

  • "Sweet Danger" is my favorite episode of the bunch, without a doubt.




  • Peter Davison did a fabulous job in all the episodes and he is


dressed to the nine's. No one else but Brian Glover could have been Lugg. The production values are quite high.

  • I have not read the books but plan to start sometime this summer.
