Any chance of a DVD release
28 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The 'Madigan' films had a short run of six episodes on TV in the early '70's, resurrecting - literally - a character who was killed in the 1968 Don Siegel film of the same name. If anyone at NBC is listening, I for one would be interested in a DVD release. Richard Widmark was always a dependable actor and I remember these films with some affection, particularly this entry as it was set in my own country.

My memory of the plot is hazy, but I do remember Madigan hiding his gun in the overcoat of a rather dim UK police sergeant (played by George Cole), then firing it from the pocket to dispatch the villains. The sergeant is immediately demoted (UK police being unarmed except in very exceptional circumstances, which is why they don't get to shoot black people) and put on traffic duty. The result is a huge traffic jam which Madigan sorts out at the end, acting like a New York traffic cop - I remember wishing our bobbies could be so flamboyant.

I now live in Portugal and another episode was 'The Lisbon Beat', so it would be great to be able to see my new city as it was 40 years ago.
