I am a compulsive reader and collector of books and DVD's. I disagree with any of the comments that state Patrick Malahide is not cast right as Inspector Alleyn. He is perfect in the role, as is Lang playing Agatha Troy. Having studied English actors for many years, I can't think of another pair that could have done a finer job in these roles. They are akin to the castings of Lord Peter Wimsey (Edward Petheridge) and Harriet Vane.
I have read all of the Alleyn novels, the Dagliesh novels, the Morse novels, the Wimsey novels, the Agatha Christie novels (yes all of them), and too many others to name. Each time I play the character in my head as I read - and Malahide is perfect, as is Lang. They play well off each other, their acting skills equal.
