this is now playing in Japan
22 December 2005 | by sean-491See all my reviews

Writing to let interested people know that this whole series of film with Roy Marsden is now playing in Japan on The Mystery Channel, with Japanese subtitles.

It's very interesting to see the different type of Police/detective TV series that were shown then. Different because many aspects of the making are different from those made now in the UK - the camera angles, film/tape quality,acting style, directing style are all significantly changed now.

Its another question as to whether the change is for the better or the worse. I was only a teenager when these films were originally broadcast, so didn't watch them first time around. I think many younger people now would find the pacing very slow, though I prefer it actually.

In addition, a lady I went to University with is acting in one of the films - nice to see her again!
