Excellent viewing - bring on more!
21 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I stumbled onto Inspectgor Alleyn on SBS Australia a few years ago. The series has never been broadcast on commercial TV. I waited impatiently for them to be released on DVD and hope that there is a Series 3 to be released.

The casts are excellent with the cream of British theatre and television have been wonderful. The scenery is wonderful.

There is something "peaceful" with the presentation of the series in that you just would love to live in some of the locations and buildings.

Patrick is excellent as Inspector Alleyn as is Inspector Fox. The two actors feed off each other with ease. It is a pleasure to watch the series repeatedly.

It has always been the British who produce such excellent series. There is something about products based in the early 1920-1950s that are special.
