Supt. Wycliffe keeps the Cornish coastline crime free as he tackles arsonists, kidnappers and the odd psycho. Jack Shepherd plays the eponymous hero in the one hour TV adaptations of W. J. Burley's creation.Written by
A thoughtful series that uses the scenery of Cornwall with great effect. Jack Shephard has acted many roles in British cinema, the first role that made me notice him was in the hammer horror, Dracula. Wykliffe gave him an opportunity to show his range of acting skills and demonstrate hi well honed jazz skills. Jimmy Yuill and Helen Masters perform well together and spark off one another with good effect. Jimmy Yuill in particular has gone on to act in other TV dramas that has shown his range of skills. The slow moving tempo of the series and the way it takes its time to develop characters makes Wykliffe one of the best police drama series. It is eminently watchable.
