Trivia

The actors' and actresses' credits at the beginning of each show are rigorously egalitarian. After John Nettles or Neil Dudgeon and the actor playing the current Detective Sergeant, the actors and actresses playing the major supporting roles are listed alphabetically, no exceptions. As a result, well-known guest stars like Edward Fox, Honor Blackman, Hayley Mills, Claire Bloom, Peter Capaldi, Henry Cavill, Jenny Agutter, Orlando Bloom, Mark Gatiss, and Sir John Standing, amongst others, get no special billing. They're simply mixed in with the regular supporting cast and others. See more »

User Reviews

Excellent
13 June 2005 | by PhilippaSSee all my reviews

This series is TV at it's best. The plots are full of twists and turns, none of the predictable formula plots of the American hour long dramas. The attention to detail is extraordinary, from the costumes, the cottage interiors to the whiskers on a character's face. One of the pleasures of watching a British drama, such as this one, is the quality of the acting. The actors are not chosen for their flawless white smiles or their silicon enhanced bodies but for their acting talents. The scenery and the quaint English villages are idyllic but underneath the seven deadly sins fester. The viewer can enjoy piecing together the clues to uncover the main villain but it is also fun to guess who is going to be the next victim. It is one of the few TV offerings that my husband and I can watch and enjoy together.
