if you appreciate well written and crafted police drama with an authentic and quality feel to it's production then Gideon's way is for you. I have spent many a moon searching for any videos of the 1960's TV series and have still only obtained around 6 of them!! John Gregson and Alexander Davion are excellent as the detectives out to solve some tricky crimes and criminals. Shot virtually always on location the series have a real taste of the times and are nicely set with believable and tasty villains. What a shame that the series have rarely been re run on present TV schedules. John Gregson, a sensitive and human actor as always, died suddenly in the early 1970s, his acting and valuable contribution to British films and TV remain a quality legacy for us to enjoy.Please would someone release the series on DVD/video!!
