Not like the books
9 October 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I listened to the books on CD before seeing this series. If you also have read/listened to the books then don't expect to find any similarities in this show. "Hamish Macbeth", "Lochdubh", and his police land-rover are about the only similarities to the actual book. People who have not read the books first may enjoy this series but I don't know why they needed to redo everything just for TV. I really looked forward to seeing Priscilla, Elspeth, Dr. and Angela Brodie, Angus the Seer, and all of the other wacky and lovable characters from the books. The most obviously missing are Superintendent Daviot, Jimmy, and the infamous DCI Blair!! I think this series would have done brilliantly in a sort of "midsomer murders" style and keeping the original characters and plot lines.
