Now (finally) the whole series is on US DVDs
10 December 2017 | by wvmclSee all my reviews

Since so many of the reviews here are lamenting the fact that this great series is not fully available in the U.S., it's time for an update. BBC video has released the entire series, all twelve seasons, on US DVDs, available from the usual places.

The episodes are nicely remastered and include good English subtitles, which I recommend turning on to help you follow the rather twisty plots and hopefully make sense of some of the thick Yorkshire accents. The first few seasons are in 4:3 ratio, but the rest are in widescreen.

Having seen only a handful of the early episodes when I was living in Europe, I am now working my way through the series. I can confirm that this is one of the very best British police series, well on a par with Inspector Morse, A Touch of Frost, Prime Suspect, and the original Taggart. The plots are full of devious twists and turns, and it's all spiced up with a good dose of dry Yorkshire humor. If you're into cerebral Britcops, get the whole set - you won't be sorry.

(Note: The DVD series consists of eleven seasons, since seasons 11 and 12 are combined on the season 11 set. Although 61 episodes are listed above, some of these are feature length episodes (90 to 120 minutes) and others are two-part episodes adding up to a feature length. If you count feature length episodes only, the total is 46.)
