Brilliant detective drama
8 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the most underrated piece of TV ever! Starring Philip Madoc, it is a detective drama, originally filmed in Welsh. It is far superior to Morse, Frost etc and is genuinely gritty and atmospheric with realistic plots and solid acting. Sadly, it is rarely seen on TV (at one point it was shown at 2am on Sky One!) and I believe production ceased about five or six years ago. It is almost impossible to buy on VHS and I'm not sure how many episodes were ever transmitted on TV in the English format. (I was told you can buy them for educational purposes if you are learning to speak Welsh so I'm seriously considering that) It's a real crime that such a wonderful programme is relatively unknown and I can't understand why it is being shown in Australia and not here- somebody should snap up the transmission rights and persuade Philip Madoc to come out of retirement! Anyone interested in starting a campaign to bring it back?
