Reasonably Enjoyable
20 July 2016 | by ArthurPenneySee all my reviews

As there has been no official release of this programme after 30 years, and with no prospect of it happening because of some dispute, and my age, I decided to get an unofficial version. I put a phrase something like 'rare TV' or whatever it was into a search engine and was able to get a reasonable version with no problems. Obviously the quality cannot be anywhere near that of an official release but it is OK for me, but then I am not into Blue-Ray, HD, etc. So was it worth the money? Yes, for me, because I like ITV adventure series, even though I would say that the production/script writing/etc was not up to the standard of The Saint, The Avengers, etc. I also benefited from stopping fretting about whether I would ever get to see it. I don't agree with some other comments that I have seen. Rosalyn Landor was OK for me. Also, I enjoyed the second and third series just as much as the first. One qualification there, however. There is a significant change from the first series to the rest. The private eye aspect goes, and it is almost all security stories. The problem that I have with that is that they tend to be more unpleasant than private eye stories. However, a minor point.
