Asked what I wanted as a xmas pressie this year, I picked Hamish MacBeth, the complete series 1-3.
I have always likes Robert Carlyle as an actor, and I remember some of the stories from the original BBC broadcasts.
Although the Highland accents are somewhat mixed, that is a small detail to an English viewer, as the acting of the varied cast more than makes up for it.
The main star of the show is the village of Lochdubh, in reality Plockton, and the scenery. Second only to the scenery is the central character of Hamish MacBeth, a city policeman who prefers the slower pace of the countryside and will do anything to preserve his quiet life and stop interference from the "city boys".
Add to this the kind of eccentrics found in small communities (on TV anyway), a low level of actual policework, and Hamish's on/off love life, and you have perfect sunday night or afternoon viewing.
There is very little extreme in language, violence etc. and the pace is comfortable.
Robert Carlyle was once quoted as saying that filming this show was one of the most relaxed times in his career, and I think most viewers would agree on the results.
