Trivia

Simenon's wife, who took over his busniess affairs, had it wrtitten into the BBC contract that the series could only be shown once and all copies destroyed afterwards. This is the reason only a couple of episodes survive. When Simenon found out about it later he could only ask 'why?' See more »

What a pity
8 May 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

When I was at the BBC in the 1990's I asked the library in Windmill Road to send up the episodes they had for viewing prior to a possible Video release. They said they had very few surviving episodes but sent what they had including a Christmas special. As I watched all the quality of this series was relived. Now that The Age of Kings has been retrieved and released on DVD this series would have been next on my wish list. It was superb, captured the atmosphere of Simenon's Paris perfectly with its Citroen Tractions, cobbled streets and bistros. The title sequence with Rupert Davies striking a match on a wall to light his pipe to the music of Ron Grainer was superb. Half the UK population flocked home to see it each week.
