Trivia

The German speaking viewers will not hear the theme music by Ron Grainer, instead a musette theme composed by Ernst August Quelle is used for all episodes. On soundtrack samplers, e.g. "Strassenfeger", only this most popular theme usually is presented in Germany. 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.
