Paired with her reliable and devoted chauffeur, Mrs Bradley's finely honed skills of investigation seek out the truth behind the mysteries surrounding a death at the opera, crimes of passion at a circus, poisoning and family secrets.
A British inspector is transferred to Saint-Marie's police department, but he hates the sun, sea, and sand. The series follow his investigations into murders on the island. Later series see another British DI head the investigative team.
Set in the 1960s, the show follows Endeavour Morse in his early years as a police constable. Working alongside his senior partner DI Fred Thursday, Morse engages in a number of investigations around Oxford.
In Season 2, Episode 6, at 00:41:14, we see a closeup of Blake's quartz watch. Although the series is set in the Fifties, the first quartz wristwatch, made by Seiko, wasn't available until 1969. See more »
This series takes the history of its setting very seriously, the costumes are top notch and if the "murder of the week" genre is a bit overused, I think this is one of its best manifestations on TV. I find the acting top-notch, which makes characters very easy to love or dislike (and the cast is quasi-exclusively Australian). Some have complained about how slow it can be, I think it's a welcome change from testosterone-fueled action series and it suits the character profiles much better. There's a very distinct atmosphere to this show, a bit different but very appealing in my opinion and I would recommend it to pretty-much anybody.
