A classic BBC English sleuth production, 29 May 2014
Author: Techvet from United States

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.
