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 »

Why I did not do well at school
17 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watching Maigret played by Rupert Davies when I should have been doing my homework is one of the reasons I did not so well at school. Others are, The Saint, Danger Man, Quatermass and the Pit, The Avengers, and so on. All the products of UK TV. But perhaps they were in fact produced by the Soviets to undermine the education of British kids like me. I have recovered but would really like the BBC to release the surviving Maigret episodes. They cant be doing any good stuck where they are.

Maigret showed me a France that excited my imagination and caused me to read every book that George Simenon ever wrote. I was not disappointed by Simenon. And Rupert Davies would have had a hard time convincing me that he was not genuinely French if we ever met. As for Ewen Solon, I could never see him as anything but Lucas in any subsequent appearances.
