Product Description

Case Histories is a detective series set in contemporary Edinburgh, adapted from Kate Atkinson's best-selling novels and devised for television by Ashley Pharoah (creator of Life on Mars). Private investigator Jackson Brodie is played by Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter; The Patriot). A former soldier and policeman, Jackson's tough-guy exterior belies a deeply empathetic heart. He's unable to resist coming to the rescue and is a magnet for the bereaved, the lost and the dysfunctional. Intriguing, moving and funny, the character driven stories conjure up a richly imagined world in which Jackson Brodie attempts to bring resolution to the victims of unexplained mysteries and comfort to the survivors of personal tragedies. He is the ultimate survivor himself--a bruised optimist, compelled to help others.

Includes all episodes from series 1 and 2.

DVD Extras
- Behind The Scenes
- Interview with Jason Isaacs, Kate Atkinson, producer Helen Gregory and Amanda Abbington
- Jason Isaacs' Video Diaries
- Stunts, Make-up, The Dog

Not much more I can say about this, but if you like the Kate Atkinson books then you will like this even more. Great acting, plots, and haunting music. I only hope we get a further series.

Why did they stop making these? Jason Isaacs is brilliant in this, super story lines too. Shame they didn't make more. It's prompted us to buy other films/programmes with Jason Isaacs in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Treat yourself.... 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase
This is an extremely watchable drama, adapted from Kate Atkinson's books. I admit to being biased as i love most programmes/films that feature Edinburgh, but all the same these are quirky detective stories that will appeal to anyone who likes the crime genre. Occasionally Jason Isaacs gets his top off too, which is an added bonus for some!

V. good adaptation of the books and Jason Isaacs is just perfect for the role of Jackson Brodie. Did miss a stronger presentation of the younger characters, but that is just because they were described in such an excellent way in the books.
