The stories revolve around an investigative reporter (yes it must be an historic piece!) They are intelligent and enjoyable to watch. The nicest thing is that you do not feel like you have just been strained through a colander after you have watched each episode. Unlike the more contemporary shows where stress inducing sounds are prevalent all the time. These DVD's are well worth the money and give you nearly nine hours of good entertainment.

An Enjoyable 1982 outing for John Thaw as "newspaper man" Mitch the stories cover a variety of investigative journalism, for me in some respects it looked like a well toned down version of the final "Sweeney" series; diehards will notice John is even wearing one or two items of clothing that he wore as Regan, some dialogue is similar and a some of the character actors that stared in the Sweeney turn up in new roles.

Still an enjoyable three disc set with David Calder in a good supporting role - recommended.

This has not been shown on Auatralian TV for what reason it is hard to know. Shows how different it is to be a journalist investigating crime compared to how a detectuve such as Morse tackles the same sort of crimes

As a big fan of John Thaw, was looking forward to this, having missed it first time around. All the stories are well written, directed and acted, but it always seems that each episode ends before an exciting finale ie the big arrest or expose. Still worth a look, but you can't half see how dated it is, good or bad.

Ok, let me tell you the PRIMARY problem I have with Mitch and I'm sorry to admit that it IS a personal one.

Amazon recommended this show to me based on my pathological adoration for The Sweeney and Morse. I will always recall the day it arrived - a day off for me and so I was busily preparing to take my son to school when the dvd plopped invitingly on the mat. The sense of palpable excitement as I drove back from the school, then delayed the pleasure even longer as I went to change into something more forgiving to my mighty waist. It was as I pulled the 4 man tent on that I had a sudden thought beamed directly into my consciousness - "WHAT IF MITCH ACTUALLY SUCKS?" What if it ISN'T like finding 10 hitherto unseen Sweeney episodes? What if it actually is.....pretty poor?

Now it may sound like I'm being unkind when I say that 3 minutes into the first episode that first thought, capitalized in my skull as it was, and all the other concomitant cascades of negativity, was championed insomuch as it was pretty much whacking the nail so firmly on the head that any re-hit was pointless. The nail was in. Any further hammerings were going to leave round dents in the woodwork.

So....what IS the problem? London Flamin Weekend Television was the problem. What was the budget for this show? And did it have any zeroes in it? Other that AT THE FRONT? Ye Gods, cheaply made or what? There is, in 10 hours, perhaps 30 seconds of incidental music. Now I never thought that muzak would be missed from TV.....until it was gone....then EVERY scene seems stilted and uncomfortable. The fact that there is a lot of location work means dialogue will drop out suddenly as a van vrooms past.

MITCH HAS A VERY 70S FEEL, WHEN THE OPENING MUSIC AND CREDITS START,which by the early 80s put people like me off in search of a bright future,of well ...i don,t remember because it was my loss! IT STANDS UP VERY WELL,THE FINAL EPISODE ON RACE HATE IN LONDON HAS LOTS OF FUTURE TRUTHS! WHICH HAVE COME TO PASS! I ENJOYED ALL EPISODES. AGAIN it starts with something that we still are shocked by, the murder of a child,featuring parents who moved to the country from the big city for a so called safer life,and treated like outsiders by the locals.IN FACT mitch plays the outsider in search of good, and a good story, and JOHN THAW AS ALWAYS PLAYS THE PART SUPERB!WITHOUT THROWING HIS WEIGHT AROUND!.Its strange how 60s, 70s,and like this into the 80s drama on t.v. was quite reflective of society, and the only reality today is celebrity, and hate your guest and each other shows,and police drama has added fantasy giving the idea all is under control! WELL 30 ODD YEARS HAVE PASSED,AND IF YOU SEE THE FIRST DOUBTS ABOUT THE POLICE IN THE COMMUNITY,THE FEAR THAT OLD PEOPLE ARE NOT SAFE TO WALK AROUND LONDON AFTER DARK,AND THE PROBLEM OF INTERGRATION,THEN COMPARE WHAT WE HAVE IN 2013, YOU WILL FIND THIS MORE RELAVANT THAN YOU THINK. ALL THE CAST ARE GOOD DAVID CALDER IS LIKE MITCH,S BIG BROTHER,AND IS A GOOD LINK MAN,AND SOCIAL WORKER GIRLFRIEND CLAIRE HIGGINS,IS A GOOD FOIL, NOT CLINGY WHO PLAYS OFF MITCH AS YOU WOULD WANT FOR THIS WORLD WEARY REPORTER!GOOD LITTLE SERIES PURCHASED THROUGH AMAZON UK
