5.0 out of 5 stars A nostaligic visit to the Eighties 24 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
I've seen the low starred reviews for this dvd set but don't agree. The Eighties were a different time and it's a bit silly to make pointed references to violence against women in a story on this dvd when this has been endemic in every time period throughout history. The 'Splash of Red' wasn't my favourite story but I really enjoyed each of the self-contained mysteries and think that Patricia Hodge is perfectly cast as the aloof, dismissive private detective who seems to be running some kind of ad-agency at the same time. I very much enjoyed the series and would recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Disapointment! 28 May 2011
By A. W. Wilson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can sort of see where Lois marshall is coming from. My wife and I found the first 2 eps "Slash of Red" quite unpleasant in its casual accepance of violence against women. A wildly overacting Ken Hutchison, bashes Jemima to the floor with a right hook and she actually seems (I stress - seems- ) to enjoy it. Throughout the 2 parter Hutchison constantly threatens brutal beatings to women (and men) and it's all OK!! As for the ending. Hopeless isn't the word. We've seen 3 other eps so far and they haven't been so poor. They are slow of course compared to todays Frantic pace, and that's not necesarily a bad thing, but it is a bit here. Some nice location shooting in London, but the acting is bad on the whole (a bit like it was in "Hannay"). Did we think it was at the time? Pat Hodge tries hard, it's her series, but she is badly supported. The prints are fine picture wise, but I found some of the sound muffled. It's hard to recomend this, and I hate being negative, but with this series I feel it's only fair to express my reservations. 5 July 2011...I have now seen all the eps. and I can't change my opinion. This is not a good series, and it's in the production and writing that it falls down almost completely. Sound levels vary alarmingly, direction is all over the place, with pauses and fluffs. The actors generally look uncomfortable, and I have to say, I just can't recomend this except for the very determined and curious (tho I still remain a Patricia Hodge fan).
