Alleyn Mysteries (1990)
How could it be better?
Malahide is an excellent Alleyn. I think the restraint, classiness, and beauty of these productions are unparalleled. I wish there were more of them. The actor playing Fox is a little scary at first but he grows on you. I wish that he had been bearded, though, as in the books.
Lang as Troy is wonderful. She's not as young as I imagined, but that does not detract from the attractiveness of the character at all.
The sets and settings are beautiful. The conversations well-transferred from the books to the screen.
I just love this series. I think anyone who loves the books will love them. Even though certain things are changed from the books (like the introduction of Troy in A Man Lay Dead) they are so well done it doesn't spoil the stories a bit. Every bit of it from beginning to end is believable.
