Trivia

Lynley can be seen locking and unlocking his driverside car door in virtually every episode, but never touches the passenger door when a passenger gets in/out. They are all classic cars and don't have central locking. See more »

A magnificent duo - up there with Holmes & Watson, Morse & Lewis
17 October 2017 | by chrissnuggsSee all my reviews

Just watched the entire 3 series again for the 3rd time! A brilliant production, which I marked down 1 point only because of a certain inconsistency in quality of plot. Some episodes were truly stunning, and often in very atmospheric settings. Others were rather weaker.

Overall stupendous acting, and a moving and compelling relationship between the two main characters. Their interplay alone makes the series worth watching. Both characters are utterly convincing and indeed inspiring as people. There are many duos as detectives, but this is one of the best.

Having them detect all around the country is a tad unrealistic, but makes for a great variety of settings, which is fun.

Very sorry they stopped it at 3 series. Surely Havers and Lynley would have got together at some stage!
