Reviews

12 more episodes of the popular 1970s/early '80s ITV courtroom drama series set in the fictional Fulchester Crown Court. While the series showed fictional cases, the jury was made up of actual members of the public. Different endings were filmed to account for the jurors' verdict, adding an unusual twist to the normal courtroom dramas of the day.

In case you dont remember the show or havent brought one of the previous five volumes of this show: crown court was a show that aired three times a week on itv and ran from 1972-1984. It showed a fictional crown court trial over the course of three weekly episodes. eleven of the jurors were members of the public, and they got to make their own mind up on the verdict at the end of each case.

Distinctive theme music, quality writing and acting, and the interactive nature of the show, given that those watching at home could draw their own conclusions as to the verdict, led to a popular show that is fondly remembered twenty five years after it finished.

This is the latest batch of stories to be released on dvd and it covers episodes from late 1973 to early 1974. There are four discs in the box, and each has three stories on it. Thus there are nine episodes a disc. The disc menu allows you to watch all nine in a row or select one to watch individually. Thus you can't just select the three episodes of one story to watch in a row, it has to be all or one.

There are no subtitles and the only language track is in english.

Although to say there are nine episodes a disc isnt true in the case of disc two, as this contains seven. the seventh is a one off fifty minute long special episode called murder most foul, which was broadcast as a christmas special in 1973. A tale of murder at a stately home, it's a rather weird episode as a lot of it is played for laughs. It just about succeeds in this respect although, perhaps because I'm used to the three episode a story format, the pacing of this one never felt quite right.

Also of note on disc four is a story called traffic warden's daughter.

This crown court drama was considered to be a very popular legal series for afternoon television in the 1970s during the lunch hours, and can remember it being on from a child when my two brothers used to come home from school and would watch it together with our grandfather. The series lasted 12 years (1972 to 1984) and would love to see more volumes produced for the entire collection. So far we have seen over 70 stories on the existing 6 volumes. In my research I have calculated that there are over 320 stories in total and can only hope, if possible, that the rest (over 250) of the stories are released, which makes a total of 26 or 27 DVD volumes, as there are 12 or 13 stories on each set. I would recommend this series to any viewer who has not seen this for decades and would be such a great shame if the set was to be incomplete. I cannot wait for the next concluding volumes. Bring out Volumes Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten and further more etc.

Having watched all the previous series I was beginning to think that the series was become a little tired and lacking in imagination. I was pleasntly surprised to be proved wrong.

The murder most foul spoof episode, I felt didn't hit the mark, but the rest of the writing was an improvement over much of the previous two volumes. The writers successfully injected some humour into each episode without turning the program into a farce. I am not sure the acting was as good as I have seen, but that was less important.

For those new to Crown court, it is a simplistic court room drama series broadcast original at luchtime in the U.K. Each case is divided into 3 very easy to follow episodes and a public jury decided the final verdicts. It is a great time filler, if you are not feeling well and you don't need to be watching the screen to enjoy it, so you can put it on whilst doing the dusting.

Excellent as always, with some memorable courtroom playets in "Fullchester." Actor William Mervyn is up to the mark and delightful as Mr. Justice Campbell. Excellent actors all round.
