Reviews

The second series in Granada's Mr Rose cult crime/suspense trilogy, It's Dark Outside saw William Mervyn reprising the role of the charismatic Inspector Rose, first introduced in The Odd Man and re-emerging in slightly mellowed form in the final series, Mr Rose.

It's Dark Outside follows the sharp-witted and memorably prickly detective as he tackles a fresh batch of cases. Assisting Rose in Series One is the more amenable DS Swift (played by a youthful Keith Barron), with John Carson as solicitor Anthony Brand and June Tobin as Brand's journalist wife, Alice; Series Two sees Rose verbally sparring with newcomer DS Hunter, played by cult favourite actor Anthony Ainley.

Although two series of It's Dark Outside were made, the second was thought completely lost until research for this set unearthed two episodes which still existed on film. Newly transferred, these episodes have been included here alongside all those from series one.

I've enjoyed Network's releases of Mr Rose but never knew it was a sequel - perhaps "spin-off" would be more accurate, since It's Dark Outside is an ensemble show with its four main characters all given equal weight. In any case it's very good indeed, tightly written and excellently played (especially by Keith Barron as Rose's prickly assistant Swift). Bizarre mysteries intertwine with ongoing plotlines from episode to episode in a way that was ahead of its time.

It should also be said that between series one and two almost the complete cast changes, with only William Mervyn appearing in both. Series one is presented complete, along with the two surviving episodes of series two.

I have enjoyed this series of "it's dark outside." the acting and the writing are both superb and if the sets and props don't look very convincing, it hardly matters when you are watching a programme made in the days when people in front of and behind the cameras knew their business and knew how to educate as well as entertain the viewers, unlike the appalling rubbish to which we are subjected these days.
William mervyn is excellent as the slightly thorny "rose" character and he is well supported by a brilliant supporting cast that was changed with the second series. a pity that the latter doesn't exist in full but at least with the complete first series, we are treated to some fine quality t.v drama.

This series is very well put together. The writing is clever. There is plenty of mystery and suspense. It is a good reflection of the time in which it was made.
